Complete Role on the Wall posters for the whole family. On 3 large sheets of paper, draw a simple outline to represent Ug, Dug and Dugs (like we did for the characters in the Green Ship)

Around the outside of the outline, write words which describe the character’s external characteristics, e.g. words that might be used to describe their appearance, phrases to describe interests, or talents, things that they do or the clothing they wear (they could also write down the type of things that they say or how they say them). On the inside of the outline, write words to describe internal characteristics – words to describe the personality as well as thoughts and feelings.

Green Chillies: Watch my step by step guide on how to do this with one character and you can use my worked example to help you do the rest.



TASK 2 (optional):

Use these Role on the Wall records from today’s session, we are going to begin to explore different reactions towards ‘change’. How does Ug feel about the way things are – in relation, so far, to his clothing and his food? How does Dug respond? How does Dugs feel about change.
