Building up a character profile within a chapter

Friday 13 November, 2020

The children are really enjoying this story. We were really pleased with their writing this week and want to showcase some of their excellent, imaginative work! Max has been sent an aeroplane ticket to San Javier and told to board it immediately. His parents are there but missing! What has happened to them? Why hasn't he heard from them? Osprey class were asked to write their own part of a chapter (where Max boards the plane) and build a character profile within it. They had to think about Max's appearance, character, hobbies and interests. Can you picture Max - the type of boy he is, what he looks like? What is he thinking and feeling too? Please enjoy reading some of their work!
