Tune of the text

For today's lesson, we will be looking closely at some of the language choices that the author has used in the WAGOLL. We will be thinking about why the author has chosen those words and the effect on the reader. Read each extract and think about how it makes you feel. I have done the first one for you but remember, this is how I feel and you may have different feelings. If you look closely, you may recognise some of the words from yesterday's lesson.





Darkness cloaked the farmlands below in a shroud of caution.



Effect on reader


This makes me feel worried because darkness is often something to be afraid of in a story.
