You have been sent a mystery text. Read it carefully.
PART1 .Complete the 2 questions underneath the text either written on the sheet or on paper but with your own handwriting. You need to use at least 3 sentences for each and aim to use a variety of punctuation. For the first question record in full sentences what you think about the text , what it is about , what might happen and why and how it makes you feel. With the second – can you write the next paragraph use descriptive phrases and Mrs Wordsmith words if you can.
PART2. On the second sheet here you have 6 text features. You will know some of them but you may not know –
Ellipsis is when you use …… to create suspense
Metaphor –When you say something is something it is not.For example, a river and tears aren't very alike. One is a body of water in nature, while the other can be produced by our eyes. They do have one thing in common, though: both are a type of water that flows. A metaphor uses this similarity to help the writer make a point:
As a river is so much larger than a few tears, the metaphor is a creative way of saying that the person is crying a lot. There are so many tears that they remind the writer of a river.
Similie-A similie is a figure of speech that directly compares two different things. The simile is usually in a phrase that begins with the words "as" or "like."
Choose your own way to show examples of these features in the text – as we have done many times in class. You could colour the text and match it to the features or write the text extract next to each feature.
