WALT: Develop fictional characters

Watch the video about Mrs Dobson's favourite book - Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman.

Next listen to an extract of the story.

Writing task: 

  • If you had a daemon, what form would it take once it shape became fixed?
  • What would its name be?
  • What would it’s main personality traits be that mirror your own?
  • Would you like to have a daemon?
  • Think of a good friend or relative.  What creature would their daemon be and why?
  • Write a paragraph describing a situation where it would be great to have a daemon (remember that their shape can still change until your body has reached puberty/ has grown up).
