Includes a booklet with a comprehension and questions, as well as a composition.
The style mirrors that of 11+ exams, so would help with ISEB preparation for schools or with grammar school entry.
A challenging resource - even for my higher ability students. Notably as the two characters are nameless, students are forced to think about how they should phrase their answers without referring to the characters as ‘him’ or ‘they’. I am finding 11+ exams are becoming tougher and therefore this reflects this new challenge.
I have also included a powerpoint that has some sample answers.
Also a very brief outline of a lesson plan- highlights what i did in each lesson with my students, and some questions that may want to be explored verbally to get the students engaged. Harder ideas about writers purpose such as structural changes (why has the text changed from present to past tense is also explored) and consideration of what we associate"warmth" and "cold’ with, and how they could reflect the mood of a person, I found this helps with characterisation. Some students really could not see how the two link, and needed a lot of encouragement.
