This activity can be used to support strands from the National Literacy
Strategy at Key Stage 1.
Children can use the activity to build simple profiles of characters linked
to stories they have read, describing characteristics and appearances with
pictures, single words, captions and sentences.
This activity is designed to develop communication, language and literacy
skills. It is therefore important that children share the creation process and
talk to an adult about their characters. It would be interesting to know how
gender aware the children are in terms of the characters they create.
Choose the type of clothes, hair and skin colour that you want your character
Now type on the notepad a sentence about your character. You can then click
on the Print button at the top of the screen and your character and the sentence
will be printed. Show it to your teacher and talk about who you have created
