WALT: Write a character description


When writing a character description, we can use noun phrases and fronted adverbials for where. This gives extra detail that helps create an image in our minds of what a character looks like. 


We know that a noun phrase is an adjective (a describing word) and a noun (a place, a person or an object). If describing a noun, we could use adjectives that describe the size, shape, colour, texture or age. 

For example: red feathers, oval eyes, rough bark, enormous tree. 


A fronted adverbial before the noun phrase will give extra detail by saying where something is. We can use prepositions, such as, on, under, beside, across, to be specific. 

For example: On its wings, there were red feathers. Beside the river, there was an enormous tree. 

Remember: A comma needs to go after the fronted adverbial to separate it from the main clause. Read the main clause without the fronted adverbial to check for sense.


We are going to be writing a description of some of the animals in the rainforest. Here is an example of one using noun phrases and fronted adverbials:



This is a small butterfly, no larger than the petal of a rose. It has a thin, cylinder like body that is onyx. Across its body, there are short, wispy hairs. On its head, there are two thin antenna help it search for food. The butterfly has two-tone wings. At the tips, the wings are as black as midnight but the centre is a deep cyan. Inside the black tips, there is a symmetrical pattern of white dots on both of the wings. Quickly, the butterfly flutters its wings, takes off and darts into the thick forest canopy.


Look at this picture of the macaw (the multicoloured parrot). Using fronted  adverbials and noun phrases, write a description of the animal.
