  • Firstly, write the character’s name vertically down the left hand side of a piece of paper. Use capitals as this makes it easier to see the word.
  • —Use each letter of the character’s name to start a sentence or a description of the character. You might like to brainstorm a few words/ideas first and use these words or phrases on the lines that begin with the same letters.
  • When you have finished describing your character, illustrate your poetry.
