Whilst plot is important, the characters are often what truly bring a story to life. Taking inspiration from the Victorian author’s most spectacular works, this pack teaches children the art of character development by focusing on a master of the form – Charles Dickens. These resources introduce children to famous Dickensian characters such as Oliver Twist and Scrooge, whilst guiding them through the process of creating their own powerful and engaging characters.

The popularity of tales such as Great Expectations and A Christmas Carol are testament to Dicken’s character building and classic storytelling capabilities. Whether it be stories of jilted brides or vicious workhouse bosses, Dickens truly captivates children and this pack will captivate children in the very same way.

The resource consists of a range of Word, Excel and SMART Notebook files which are complete and ready to teach. Slides, extracts, activity sheets and teacher prompts are provided. No other texts or resources are needed!
