Y3 English Home learning – Thursday 11th June

Today we are going to be writing a character description about Paddington bear.

I think we could do even better.

Watch this to see Paddington.

Here is a good example of a character description.

Stood there in the corner of Paddington station, was a small, furry bear with fur the colour of chocolate. He was carrying a battered suitcase which he held tightly in his paws. The bear had a small brown tag around his neck with the letters simply saying ‘Please look after this bear. Thank you.’ His red hat sat wonky on his head, and his fur looked as though it was in need of a brush and a good wash. The bear looked around anxiously with his eyes as dark as the night sky. He waited patiently in the hopes that someone would notice him stood by himself.

Things to consider:

  • The characters fur
  • The characters outfit
  • The characters facial features
  • The characters personality
  • What the character is doing/holding/saying and how they are doing this.

Bronze – Adjective and coordination focus – using talking tins put adjectives into the sentence to describe Paddington.

Silver – To use adjectives, similes, and inference into a character description.

Gold – Use adjectives, similes, conjunctions, and inference into a character description.

    At the dawn in the train station over there, a poor brown bear sat on a dusty suitcase. He is wearing a rough hat as red as a tomato with a white tag around his neck saying ” please look after this bear. Thank you”. The bear looks frightened.
    The bear really likes marmalade.When Mrs Brown approached the bear, Mrs Brown talked to him. Mrs Brown saw a tag on the bear saying ”please look after this bear thank you”. Mrs Brown told the bear do you need some help, we can help you. The bear is now over the moon.

  2. Just as I was walking down, I saw a fluffy, soft bear. I wanted to hug it so I moved closer to it. I noticed that this bear wasn’t a normal bear but it was a talking bear. He was as still as a statue until I jumped in front of him excitedly. On the top of his head was a scarlet hat which covered his ears. Just below, I could see his small, black eyes followed by his big nose and a mouth with a shocked look on it. Then, there was his dark blue coat.
    “HI THERE! Who are you?” he shouted.

    Paddington’s chocolate – brown fur is as soft as wool and as dirty as icky, oozy mud. His fur looked as if it hadn’t been brushed or washed for a month and needed a major cleanup. He wore a red, old – fashioned hat, a blue, dusty jacket and tightly held a battered, worn out suitcase in his paws. He had an old label on which kindly said “Please look after this bear. Thank you.” Paddington was looking unhappily at the moonlight and thought if anyone would take him to their house and keep him there but no one did. Paddington feels soft and sticky because he eats/makes marmalade sandwiches.

    In front of a shop in Paddington station, stood a young bear. The young bear had fur as brown as milk chocolate. His fur was as soft as a blanket. He had two big eyes. He wore a hat as red as blood. He carried an old beaten up suitcase which he held with his paws. When people came, he tried to talk to people politely, but they ignored him. When Mrs Brown saw him, she enquired “where are your mum and dad?” Paddington answered “My mum and dad passed away when I was young. All I have left is my aunt, but she is deep in a forest in darkest Peru.” While Paddington was talking, Mrs Brown was looking at the note on Paddington’s neck. It read “Please look after this bear. Thank you”. Mrs Brown felt sorry for Paddington. She suggested that they let Paddington stay with them.

  5. Paddington Bear is a fictional character in children’s literature.he is characterised as a polite bear that has come from deepest darkest Peru and is portrayed with an old hat carrying a battered suitcase that has a secret compartment and can hold more items than what appears to be it’s capacity. he is also wearing a duffle coat and simply loves marmalades.he is a very polite bear. he is very well meaning and full of good intentions.

  6. Paddington wears a red hat, he is short and has soft brown fur. He is not a human being, he is a bear with dark brown eyes. He is a little chubby and carrys a brown old suitcase.

  7. Paddington has a neon blue jacket soft as a blanket and fur speaking of fur it look like celebration chocolate and he has a red hat like fire place. In his lunch box he has marmalade sandwiches. The most he is a nice bear.

    • Good try but don’t rush your work take your time and checkPaddington has a neon blue jacket soft as a blanket.
      His fur lookS like big box of celebration chocolate and his red hat Like a maltesers wrapper. Don’t you think this sounds better.Rewrite your last sentence using a simile.

  8. The Browns first saw this little bear the colour of milk chocolate, with his red hat and a heavy suitcase waving away the pigeons from his marmalade sandwiches. His eyes were as black as the night sky, as he stood outside the lost and found. The little bear looked frightened while he was asking people for help, he looked like he needed a bath and taken care off, as there was a tag around his neck saying “Please take care of this bear, thank you!”

  9. Gold :
    Hopeless, Paddington sat on the floor waiting for the light at the end of the tunnel. He saw a happy family walking past and got excited too early as they walked straight past him. He sat back down sadly. That’s when a tall woman appeared in front of him. She was being so kind and gave him a place to stay and Paddington felt the most happiest he ever felt.

  10. Paddington has a blue, thick coat that is warm and soft. His fur is soft as a blanket. Paddington has a red hat that fits his head perfectly. His fur is brown like chocolate, he also likes marmalade sandwiches. Paddington has a shiny and black nose. He has a smiling face. I infer that inside his brown box are marmalade sandwiches.

    Paddington was asking people politely if he could stay in there house but nobody answered. His fur was sticky and curly. He had a dusty, dirty and dark red suitcase that he was protecting very carefully. Then there were people getting of a train and one of them saw Paddington and went towards him and said ” what are you doing here?”
    Paddington said ” I need some where to stay but nobody will let me stay in there home.”
    The Lady said ” You can stay in my home” asking her husband and he said ” You can stay it will be no harm at all”.

    It was a cold dark winter’s evening. Paddington was whimpering as he sat upon a battered, broken brown suitcase.His body was covered in scruffy, dirty pale brown fur which resembled a light version of dairy milk chocolate. He was in urgent need of a good wash and blow dry and a lot of pampering. Around his neck was a tag which read “please look after this bear. Thank you”.
    As he was sat bewildered and full of worry like a little school boy on his first day at school, a family walked by glancing at him, his eyes lit up in anticipation and then dropped again in dismay very quickly as they walked on past him. Just as his eyes closed, the elegant charming lady came back, How could see not after seeing the large red hat sat proudly on his head covering half his face. She asked Paddington, are you all alone? where are your parents? Where do you live? I’m Paddington murmured the bear and yes I’m alone, I’ve no parents or home, my only aunt is far away in Peru in a home for retired bears. On hearing this the lady felt sorry for him and much to the reluctance of her husband said let’s go and find you a home.

    Standing there all alone wearing a red tatty old hat on his head with a brim so wide it almost covered his big brown eyes. He was as small as a 6-year-old child with fur covering all over him; the fur was the colour of chocolate milk but dirt mixed in. He had no other clothes except for a paper tag around his neck with the writing; please look after this bear thank you.
    As he stood there all alone holding a old battered suitcase in his fury paw. He looked up at us pointing his large nose in the air. He could barely see us with his hat covering his eyes.
