This week in literacy we have been looking at character description. Can you answer these questions about the old lady that came to visit us in the comments section of this post?

What is her name?

What does she look like?

How did she behave?

If you met her again what questions would you like to ask her?

 

Make sure that you remember to use lots of descriptive language in your answers and don't forget to vary your sentence openers.

Class Caribbean,
Think back, what was our visitor's story? What were the questions you asked and what answers did you get? I would like to see some wonderful adjectives in your descriptions.

What is her name?
Unfortunately I can't remember the old ladies name but I think it started with the letter E.

What does she look like?
The woman looks like an ancient wrinkled-faced old lady. She is wearing tatty, dirty clothes and scruffy black shoes. The old lady was crooked and had a brown wooden walking stick.

How did she behave?
She was nervous and quiet and had a soft gentle voice. She shuffled quietly into the classroom with the help of Miss Loxley.

If you met her again what questions would you like to ask her?
I would like to ask her:
What is your name?
How many children did you have?
Are you a widow?
Did you hurt yourself when you fell over in the snow?

When she came in she was behaving quite gentle and pretty nervous too.With the help of Miss Loxely she helped her shuffle acrss the carpet to sit down on the teachers seat.

I would ask her the following:

Do you have any children and if you do what is their name (or names)?

I don't want her too get too stressed that we are posting loads of coments that she does not like.
