LO: To write through the eyes of a character

One of the things I love exploring when I’m writing is what must be going on in a character’s mind. Whenever I read great portal stories, I always try to put myself into the shoes of the character, to try to imagine how they must be feeling as they discover this passageway to a new world. How must Alice have been feeling as she fell through the never ending tunnel into Wonderland?


  1. Open the document (or look in your learning pack as it's in there too!) and try to answer the questions about your character. 
  2. Now,  describe what is through your magical door through their eyes.  Write a few sentences about what is through the door using openers such as 'Samantha stared....'   'Ali hesitated...'
  3. Next, read the paragraph example at the top of the second page and find the writing tools that were used (look in the box to help you identify them)
  4. Lastly, imagine your character is walking along a road when they discover a mysterious doorway.  Describe it through their eyes, using the examples on the sheet to help you.
