White Fang

The cub came upon them suddenly. It was his own fault. He had been careless.

He had left the cave and run down to the stream to drink. It might have been that he took no notice because he was heavy with sleep. And his carelessness might have been due to the familiarity of the trail to the pool. He had travelled it often, and nothing had ever happened before.

He went down past the blasted pine, crossed the open space, and trotted in amongst the trees. Then, at the same instant, he saw and smelt. Before him, sitting silently on their haunches, were five live things, the like of which he had never seen before. But at the sight of him the five men did not spring to their feet, nor show their teeth, nor snarl. They did not move, but sat there, silent and ominous.

 

  1. Write down any vocabulary you don’t know – find out the definition and use the word in a sentence.
  2. What had the wolf gone down to the stream for?
  3. Who does the word them in the first sentence refer to?

Most visitors are a little shocked (to put it mildly) when they arrive at Animal Town. Despite the fact that the name of the town gives a slight indication to passers-by that the inhabitants of the town are ‘not normal’, it’s as if people don’t believe things until the see them with their own eyes!

Once you get used to being in Animal Town – or so they say – seeing an orangutan behind a desk in a sheriff’s office and upholding the law to an impeccably high standard becomes relatively ‘normal’…

Imagine you were a visitor to animal town... can you write to describe your experience. Challenge - Use relative clauses for description.

 

As the car turned off the main road, I couldn't believe what I saw. In front of me was a...

Anousheh’s Space Blog, September 25th: Everyone wants to know: how do you take a shower in space? How do you brush your teeth? Well my friends, I must admit keeping clean in space is not easy! There is no shower with running water. Water does not ‘flow’ here, it ‘floats’ – which makes it a challenging act to clean yourself. There are wet towels, wet wipes and dry towels that are used. Now brushing your teeth in space is another joy. You cannot rinse your mouth and spit after brushing, so you end up rinsing and swallowing. Astronauts call it the ‘fresh mint effect’.

 

  1. Find and copy another word that suggests it is ‘not easy’ to clean yourself in space.
  2. Find and copy a group of words that shows that Anousheh wrote her blog for others to read.
  3. Why does Anousheh use ‘another joy’ to describe brushing teeth?
  4. What reason is given for needing wet towels, wet wipes and dry towels?

White Rose Problem of the Day

Writing

Story Starter

Suddenly, the wind gusted and Sammy was lifted higher and higher until his owner Beth could hang on no more… “Owwoooooooo!” yelled Sammy, as the world below him drifted further and further away. Up…Up…Up…He went, until Beth was just a tiny dot; an ant far beneath him!

Can you continue this story about the dog that floated away? Can you describe what the dog sees as he is floating away? Where does he finally land? Does he manage to get back home?

Challenge: Can you write a sentence that begins with a noun?

E.g. Sammy, who was afraid of heights, was petrified as he lifted off the ground.

Dogs, who feel comforted by their owner’s presence, become uneasy when they are separated.

The noun is always followed by a comma and the sentence contains a relative clause in the middle.
