A fun and engaging lesson developing students’ ability to use create interesting and developed characters. Ideal in preparing students for GCSE English Language Paper 1, Section B. The full scheme of work is available to purchase for just £5. Click this link to check it out!
In this lesson, a range of activities have been designed to develop your pupils’ imagination and descriptive writing skills. Lots of image based activities which connect quite strongly to what they will encounter in the writing section of paper 1 on the new AQA 9-1 Language syllabus. There are a wide range of activities that should keep your students busy for at least a couple of lessons.
Would work well as a standalone writing/literacy lesson or as part of the paper 1 writing scheme of work of which this is a part. Ready to go, lots of differentiation and Assessment for Learning built in to the activities.

Creative Writing Scheme of Work GCSE
Full scheme of work covering all aspects of creative writing. Ideal in preparing students for GCSE English Language Paper 1, Section B. Designed with the very latest developments in the 9-1 specification in mind, this is best suited to the AQA syllabus but would be equally useful for both KS3 prep and other exam boards. Please see individual resources for more details. The lessons all work well as stand-alone, but if being used in sequence, the scheme runs as follows: Lesson 1 - Vocabulary Lesson 2 - Sensory Description Lesson 3 - Devices and Techniques Lesson 4 - Narrative and Descriptive Openings Lesson 5 - Sentence Variation Lesson 6 - Characterisation Lesson 7 - Narrative Structure Each lesson takes the form of a 'masterclass'; each masterclass is packed with a range of activities that will enable your students to truly embed and master each aspect of creative writing. Each 'lesson' is probably going to take in excess of 2 hours to get through - you may wish to 'pick and choose' activities, or take your time with each skill area and cover them in depth. Great value bundle, save yourself over 60% compared to buying these resources separately. If you loved the resource and think it’s worth 5 stars, why not get another one absolutely free?

Some nice general points about characterisation, but nothing special.
