Due: Thursday, 20th November
1. Click on this link http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/quiz/q51796114 to complete the Bitesize learning test on Reading a Non Fiction Test, all 1-10 Questions, posting your score underneath this post, or writing it in your Home Learning Book / Planner.
Before you answer each question, Google a word if you do not know it. e.g. ‘indirect language’ or ‘alliteration’. This is research, and will give you a better chance of getting the question right.
2. Write down one question that you did not know the answer to, and explain what the correct answer is, and give an example where possible
Identify and comment on why the writer has used the following types of language of the following piece of descriptive writing from a holiday brochure.
c) Structure (Paragraphing.)
Make your way to the beautifully-crafted, visually-impressive, stained glass window at the side of this magnificent old room. Place your hands on the rustic, weathered handles and swing firmly outwards, in one majestic, gliding motion.
It’s that easy.
When the window is opened, lean forward and breath deeply of the fresh morning dew, calmly taking in all the sights and smells of the superbly-formed countryside in front of you.
