“Mr. Twit was one of these very hairy-faced men. The whole of his face except for his forehead, his eyes and his nose, was covered with thick hair. The stuff even sprouted in revolting tufts out of his nostrils and ear-holes.”
This week in writing, we had a visualising activity in response to the Roald Dahl text ‘The Twits”. We used this text as a tool to help us understand how good writers are able to use their words to help the reader gain a mental image of characters and what they look like. We had lots of fun listening to the rich vocabulary in the text. We were then asked to draw what we thought Mr. Twit looked like. After we drew our interpretation of Mr. Twit, we had a gallery walk to see what other people were visualising! It was so interesting to see different types of Mr. Twits!
Here are some of the responses we had in our class…
