Today we will draft our character profile, we need to remember to use:

  • full sentences
  • capital letters and full stops
  • paragraphs
  • sub-headings
  • adjectives
  • similes
  • Conjunctions to extend our sentences

What will your new God or Goddess look like (appearance), what will their personality be like and which special powers will they have?
