Now read the extract below and answer the comprehension questions.

 

In a tight-packed house fug-full of sleeping people, their smells and their snores and shouts, a tall boy tipped out of bed and climbed up into the attic to throw open the casement to lean out and breathe in the cooler air from outside.  Nick looked up from the dark crowded lane cramped with homes, up to the moon-silvered sky where the ravens were flying.  In the day time those birds flew and worked alone.  But hot summer nights they swarmed together and flew in circles, like dancers, thought Nick.  Or like witches, casting spells.  They writhed and whirled up and up over their Tower-of-London home, and Nick watched them and wondered.  Seth had told him that there had almost always been ravens at the tower, always for hundreds of years until the people of England cut off their Kings head. When that King went, so too did the ravens, and they didn’t return until the new king came to the throne.  Why had the birds stayed away just then, wondered Nick.  And why did they ever come back?  If he was a raven he would fly away and away and never come back.

 

  1. What does the word CASEMENT tell us about the timeframe?
  2. Which word class is ‘moon-silvered’?
  3. In what way are the ravens like witches?
  4. How does Nick feel about living in London?

Reading:   Raven Boy – To show an understanding of the text

Make sure you have read or listened to Chapter 1 of Raven Boy, then answer the questions below in your book.

My Turn

How do we know that Seth is hot?

 Even the flies buzzing over the stinking rubbish in the lane seemed to buzz more lazily than usual.  Seth Binder wiped a rag over his damp forehead as he stood in the doorway of the timber and wattle house.  He called out,

    “Are you coming, Nick?  Do you want a day’s work or not?”

I know that Seth is hot because as he stood in the doorway, waiting for Nick, he wiped a rag over his damp forehead.  This shows me that Seth was sweating which he would do if he was hot. 

 

How did Seth know that something was up with Nick?

There were muffled thumps and noises within the cramped darkness inside, and at last a skiny, dark-haired boy came clattering down the stairs.  He was frowning. 

   “What’s up?” asked Seth?.

Seth knew there was something up with Nick because when he came down the stairs he was frowning.  This showed Seth that Nick was worried about something. 

 

Your Turn

  1. Where did Nick live?
  2. Find two pieces of evidence that show Seth is older than Nick.
  3. Which word best describes how Nick feels about the King? Like/hate/indifferent, Find evidence from text to support your answer.
  4. What evidence is there to suggest that Nick felt guilty for taking the silver button, explain using evidence from the text to support your answer.
  5. What time of year is the story set?  Use evidence from the text to support your answer.
  6. What do you thing the word ‘fug’ means. 
  7. What is a hunk of bread?
  8. What two smells were evident in the boarding house?
  9. What four things did the king keep in the Tower of London?
  10. Why did Nick think the king was a murderer?  Give evidence from the text to support your answer.

Lesson 4

11.45-12.30

Reading: Hyphens

Before you start today’s lesson, make sure you have read or listened to Chapter 3 of Raven Boy. 

Read through the information below regarding hyphens. 

 

Authors use adjectives to help paint a picture for the reader.

Even the flies buzzing over the stinking rubbish in the lane seemed to buzz more lazily than usual.

Stinking rubbish

 

 

He sat beside a mooring post and watched two seagulls having a tug-of-war over a scrap of fish.

Tug-of-war

 

 

A rope hit Nick around the head, and he reached out and took it as a silk-stockinged foot in a fine buckled shoe stepped onto the quay.

Silk-stockinged foot

 

 

At times they halted statue-still, then scuttled on towards the house.

statue-still

 

 

Hyphens

A hyphen glues together two words to create a new adjective within a noun phrase. 

 

My father owns a heavy-metal detector.

In this instance the hyphen is linking the words heavy and metal to create heavy-metal.  This changes the sentence from having a metal detector that is heavy to having a metal detector that finds heavy metal.

 

Barney has a part-time job delivering newspapers.

In this sentence the hyphen is used to link part and time to create the adjective part-time.  This tells me that the job only takes up part of his time. 

 

The huge sack was feather-light, which surprised the man when he picked it up.  

In this instance, the hyphen links the word feather and light to create the adjective feather-light which means the sack was as light as a feather.

 

Independent Task

 

As you read Chapter 3, make a not of any hyphenated adjectives and explain what the two root words were and what does the hyphenated adjective describe?

 

ie low-ceilinged cave  The hyphen has linked the two words low and ceiling.  Low-ceilinged tells me that the ceiling of the room was very low.
