Home Learning 18-01-2013

This week’s home learning task is to use the description of the Artful Dodger below to draw a picture of the character. What does he look like? How would he stand? Use the text below, but also use other versions of Oliver Twist to help you.

Oliver looked up through the blur of his tearful eyes to see a strange sight. The Artful Dodger was about ten years old, small, filthy, with sharp little eyes and a snub nose. Her was dressed in a grown man’s clothes. A hat struggled to balance right on top of his head. He half smiled at Oliver, his hat wobbling.
