Read this extract from Moondial.  Answer the questions on the blog. Today we are looking at "Find and Copy" questions.

 

Minty felt fear thicken in her throat. It was too late now to step out, she would be directly in the child’s path. She stared helplessly as the small figure trailed past, face hidden by the curving folds of the hood. Then she looked again at the assembling host of listeners, advancing now, stealthily, over the bleached lawns. Suddenly aware of a presence, she looked over her shoulder and her hand flew up to stifle a scream.

 

Horrorstruck she watched the figure, also that of a child, creep towards the path to cut off retreat to the house. The figure had no face! It was wearing a loose sack over its head and hanging down to its waist. There were two gaping holes in it, like the cavernous eyes of a skull. Minty shuddered. Beyond the path she saw that the other advancing figures were all similarly shrouded. They closed in with slow menace. The singing girl had reached the moondial now and stood gazing up at it, all unaware. As she did so the hood slipped and fell to her shoulders and Minty could see her bare head, hair hanging pale and straight. ‘Who are you?’ she heard the girl say, and shivered to hear her own earlier words echoed. ‘Secret, you are …’ the child continued. ‘Seem it, to me. Perhaps because I only see you at night …’ She stood gazing up, and was so rapt and dreaming that she seemed not to hear the soft, whispering chant that now set up from the shrouded watchers.

 

Paragraph 1

1 Find and copy a word that tells us that the listeners are grouping together.

2 Find and copy a word that tells us Minty blocked or stopped something.

 

Paragraph 2

3 Find and copy a word that suggests Minty is scared. (Several to choose from)

4 Find and copy a word that shows the watchers were singing not just speaking.

 

5 Look at the picture. Use the blog and write your own description of the children who Minty meets that night. Try to describe just how strange and disturbing they look to someone who has not seen the picture.
