Exploring characters in Private Peaceful

Year 6 have been thoroughly enjoying reading Private Peaceful. Last week, we explored the character of the Colonel in depth looking at how the author uses both direct and indirect description to make the reader really dislike him. The children were amazing at explaining what the indirect descriptions were designed to make us feel and also discussed why this might be a useful technique as an author. Today, they demonstrated how they are able to use expression to ensure that the meaning is understood when they were reading to their partners.
