Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl Chapter 3, Chapter 4 & Chapter 5

Use your plan from Monday to help you to write a character description of Charlie Bucket.


Remember to:

  • Use different sentence starters to hook your reader.
  • Use descriptive noun phrases (like you did for The Paperbag Princess)
*Noun: a person, place, thing or animal.

*Adjective: a describing word.

*Noun phrase: when we describe a noun.

  • Try to use a possessive apostrophe eg Charlie's family.

Here are some sentence starters that you could use in your description. You should write your description as a continuous piece of writing and not in numbered points, this is just to give you some ideas.
