Explore creating characters using this Halloween inspired resource from Plazoom. Fire up pupils’ imaginations using the image cards to discuss who the object/s might belong to. They can then design their own character and write sentences to describe them and the object that they own.
There is also an opportunity to teach possessive apostrophes with pupils in year 2.
The resource could be used as part of a topic day based on Halloween, or over a series of English lessons. It could also be used as a writing project focused on character description, which would be perfect for home learning or as a fun homework task.
This KS1 resource pack includes:
- Who does this belong to? image cards
- Character design sheet
- Writing sheet
- Teacher’s notes
