Develop understanding of characters using these ‘Wanted’ poster templates. In stories that you are reading, pupils can identify the heroes and villains and create a wanted poster for the villain, noting a description of the character and why they are a villain by writing what they have done. This activity works particularly well with traditional tales, myths and legends but can be successfully applied in other narratives.
