Pupils need to establish the basic facts about their character before they can develop their character further.
Ask your pupils to use the Character profile page resource to complete a character profile about their character. If pupils haven’t already, ask them to briefly consider the plot of their story. Ask them if their character’s age and gender is relevant and appropriate to the plot.
Ensure your pupils consider both physical and emotional traits for their character, reminding them that at this stage the information is still quite basic.
