This activity allows you to create your own character and then talk and write about the person you have invented.  
Resource Support Notes:

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.

Pupil Notes

Choose the type of clothes, hair and skin colour that you want your character to have.

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
