Year 6 | Describing a Character Worksheets

In these Year 6 describing a character in narrative writing worksheets, children embrace the challenge of creating a compelling opening paragraph that vividly portrays a character. The process begins with brainstorming ideas for different character settings, such as a pirate on a quest for treasure, a courageous boy standing up to bullies, a small alien stranded on Earth, the world’s wealthiest person, and a teacher aspiring to become a wrestler. Following this, learners select one character and delve into a detailed exploration to help readers visualise it. Using their ideas, pupils then compose an opening paragraph for their chosen character, with a gentle reminder to consider effective techniques for conveying vivid imagery to the reader.

This worksheet serves as a culmination of primary school learning on character development, providing an opportunity for learners to apply this knowledge in the planning and writing of a descriptive piece that vividly captures the essence of a character.

Our Year 6 writing composition worksheets are aligned with the KS2 primary national curriculum and will support your learning activities, differentiation, homework and lesson plans.
