LO: I can describe a character.


Today we are going to look at Mr Hoppy. He is the main character in Esio Trot and Roald Dahl has described him in the first paragraph of the story. To begin with I would like you to draw My Hoppy from Roald Dahl’s description.


Then I would like you to think of who your main character is going to be. I would like you to describe him or her using adjectives, similes, metaphors and alliteration so I can imagine what he or she may look like.

If you are finding this challenging to get started, think of a character from other books for TV programmes you have watched and base your character on them.
