Created as part of a Literacy unit on 'Aquila' by Andrew Norriss. We looked at the features of explanation texts then children wrote their own explanation of how to operate a UFO. I have included two different templates for different ability children. Once complete, these made lovely pieces of display work.

Describing Characters Using Evidence From text

(0)
During a Year 5 Unit on 'Aquila' by Andrew Norriss, I wanted to encourage my higher ability pupils to look for evidence in the text to support their character descriptions. The first activity asks the children to come up with words to describe either Tom or Geoff. For each characteristic, they must then find the evidence in the text, noting down a quotation and the page number it was found on. After this, I asked the children to compare Tom and Geoff including evidence from the text. I provided them with an example that compares the two teachers instead. This way, they could see how I expected the work to be laid out. I have included the initial table for recording evidence from the text as well as the example I gave them for the main task.
