Attachment 2.1 – Character profile

Attachment 3.1 – Which character would you read about

Tommy is an eight year old boy with brown hair.

He likes to ride his bike and loves to read books about soldiers.

He has an older sister and a younger brother.

Jessica Clarence Humpernickel was an ordinary looking girl, with long black hair and dark green eyes.

On the outside, she looked just like everybody else, but she had a secret that nobody knew about.

Inside the top drawer of her desk at home, Jessica had an entire civilisation of tiny people, completely at her command!

Attachment 3.2 – Two kinds of characters

Today you are going to create two characters.  We want to have a contrast between their exterior and their interior.

Exterior – what the character is like on the outside
Interior – what the character is like on the inside
Relatable – really ordinary or normal

The first character will have an EXCITING exterior and a RELATABLE interior.

The second character will have a RELATABLE exterior and an EXCITING interior.

Choose one of your characters and get to know them better.  Answer the 4 Fs:

Who are their FRIENDS?
What are their FEARS?
What would they grab in a FIRE?
What is FUNNY about them?

Attachment 11.2 – 'Partner in Crime' – lyrics

Partner in Crime

From Tuck Everlasting: The Musical
Lyrics by Nathan Tysen

Jesse:

The Pyramids, The Brooklyn Bridge, The Rio Grande, The Rhine
I've seen the seven wonders of the world ...
Can't wait for eight and nine
But because of my predicament, my peculiar situation
To keep my profile low, low, low
I'm a one man operation

Winnie:

Jesse! I've got it!
You need a partner in crime
Someone to share in the view
Why see the world and all of its glories
Without a friend to tell your stories to?

Jesse:

Someone to stand at my side
Two extra fists In a fight!
Why should the road be long and lonely?

Winnie:

Why not team up?

Both:

We've only got tonight!

Jesse:

If no one's there to hear it,
does a falling tree make sound?

Winnie:

Are we heard or seen or anything
without a friend around?

Jesse:

The old Great Wall, the Taj Mahal,
yes, they all have merit

Winnie:

But this traveling fair could take the cake
because you get to share it!

Jesse:

Carrot?

Winnie (with Jesse):

You need a partner in crime (I need a partner in crime)
Someone to share in a laugh (someone to share in a laugh)
Running a race without a pace setter

Jesse:

I'm out of place

Both:

Without my better half!

Winnie:

With you

Jesse:

The fun is two-for-one

Winnie:

And choc full of surprises!
With you the line moves twice as fast

Both:

And no one realizes

Jesse:

To do whatever we do now will merit reminiscing

Both:

With two I finally feel somehow
that something isn't missing

Both (with ensemble):

I have a partner in crime (a partner in crime)
someone to share in the view

All:

Why see the world and all of its glories
without a friend to tell your stories to?

Ensemble:

Last night for fun at the fair
Sun's setting
Tomorrow we're gone

All:

You need a partner, a partner in crime
Two extra fists in a fight
Stuck in a sticky situation?
Lucky the trick's collaboration
Why should the road be long and lonely?

Jesse and Winnie:

We've only got tonight!

Ensemble:

Last night for fun at the fair

Jesse and Winnie:

A partner in crime!

Ensemble:

Sun's setting
Tomorrow we're gone

All:

My partner in crime!
