Literacy Homework Wednesday 7th October

Published Wednesday, October 07, 2009.

Here is part of a character description by Charles Dickens from ‘Oliver Twist’.

Who do you think is being described?

 ‘The man who growled these words was a stoutly-built fellow of about thirty-five, in a black velveteen coat, very dirty trousers, lace-up half boots and grey cotton stockings that enclosed a thick pair of legs with large calves. He had a brown hat on his head and a dirty handkerchief around his neck. He had a broad heavy face and two scowling eyes.’

 In the film you have been watching there is a scene where Oliver meets Jack Dawkins, better known as the Artful Dodger.  If you were Charles Dickens, how would you describe Dodger?

Think about his appearance and mannerisms. 

What does he look like?

How does he walk?

What is he wearing?

How does he talk? 

Remember, he steals food as they walk through the streets.  He checks people’s pockets.  How do you put that in to a description of his character?

You can cut out this picture, stick it in your books and write your character description of the Artful Dodger underneath.  


If you want to draw and describe some more characters, go for it! Interesting choices would be: Fagin, Nancy or Bill Sikes.
