Apply my understanding to my work Dialogue: Writing Conversation When you write conversation there are certain rules you must follow. For each different speaker you begin a new line. e.g. Mark? Do you want some tea? his dad called again. No, he shouted, trying to make his voice sound sad. Rule Two You must use inverted commas to show the words actually spoken. It doesnt matter if you use or , just as long as you use the same right the way through.

e.g. Mark? Do you want some tea? his dad called again. Rule Three The first word spoken always has a capital letter. e.g. Mark? Do you want some tea? his dad called again. Rule Four There must always be a comma or a full stop or an exclamation mark or a question mark before you close your inverted commas. e.g. Mark? Do you want some tea? his dad called again No, he shouted, trying to make his voice sound sad. Rule Five The word after the inverted commas provided you havent used a full stop before them is always a small letter (unless its a name). e.g. Mark? Do you want some tea? his dad called again No, said Mark. Challenge 1: Correct dialogue below. the speech Come over here my dad said no I dont want to you need to come here now my dad said loudly. Challenge 2: Write your own conversation below using the rules opposite. Sentence Types Simple sentence A sentence that stands alone and makes full and complete sense. E.g. Task: Write this paragraph in your books, using three different colours/highlighters to show the different sentence types being used. I went to the shop. Compound sentence Two simple sentences joined together by a

connective. E.g. I went to the shop and I bought some milk. Complex sentence A sentence that contains a subordinate clause (extra bit of information). The subordinate clause can be at the beginning, middle or end of the sentence. E.g. Whilst strolling through the dark streets, I came across a mysterious figure. I came across, whilst strolling through the dark streets, a mysterious figure. I came across a mysterious figure whilst strolling through the dark streets. I felt like I was trapped in one of those terrifying nightmares. My legs seemed to move slower and slower, but I still tried to run. As I fought my way through the callous crowd, the hands on the huge clock tower didn't slow. With uncaring force, they turned inevitably toward the end. Alice had said there was a good chance we would both die here. I realised that she was right and I felt tears fill my eyes. Challenge: Continue the paragraph with your own ideas including a range of simple/compound/complex sentences. Paragraphing Paragraphing Paragraphing is used to section and organise text. It is important for the exam that your paragraphs: Organise information into appropriate sections Are topic-led (each paragraph begins with a sentence that tells us what the rest of the paragraph will be about Are varied in length, including oneword or one-sentence paragraphs to create dramatic effect where appropriate. Important information in the text will usually be found at the beginning or end of a paragraph. TASK 1:

Read through the paragraph. Consider how to organise the text into effective paragraphs Cut the text into the sections Make annotations to show how you made decisions about paragraphs e.g. Emphasise this part of the text TASK 2: Highlight the part of the text that you think is the most important. What do you notice about where this information is in the text? I hear again in my head the instructor's voice, see him shouting at me through his mask when we went out on our last exercise. "You're panicking in there, Peaceful. A gas mask is like God, son. It'll work bloody miracles for you, but you've got to believe in it." But I don't believe in it! I don't believe in miracles. The gas is only feet away now. In a moment it will be on me, around me, in me. I crouch down, hiding my face between my knees, hands over my helmet, praying it will float over my head, over the top of the trench, seek out someone else. But it does not. It's all around me. I tell myself I will not breathe, I must not breathe. Through a yellow mist I see the trench filling up with it. It drifts into the dugouts, snaking into every nook and cranny, looking for me. I see men running, staggering, falling. I see Pete shouting out for me. Then he's grabbing me and we run. Half-blinded by my mask I trip and fall, crashing my head against the trench wall, knocking myself half-senseless. My gas mask has come off. I pull it down, but I have breathed in and know already it's too late. My eyes are stinging. My lungs are burning. I am coughing, retching, choking. I don't care where I'm running so long as it is away from the gas. At last I'm in the reserve trench and it is clear of gas. I'm out of it. I wrench off my mask, gasping for good air. Then I am on my hands and knees, vomiting violently. When at last the worst is over I look up through blurred and weeping eyes. A Hun in a gas mask is standing over me, his rifle aimed at my head. The cry goes up and is echoed all along the trench. For a moment we are frozen with panic. We have trained for this time and again, but nonetheless we fumble clumsily, feverishly with our gas masks. We were lulled by the blue skies perhaps, or by sheer boredom. Fritz seemed to have gone to sleep on us and as far as we were concerned that suited us fine. We thought we could go to sleep too. The awakening came suddenly. "Gas! Gas!" "Fix bayonets!" Hanley's yelling while we're still trying frantically to pull on our gas masks. We grab our rifles and fix bayonets. We're on the firestep looking out into no-man's-land, and we see it rolling towards us, this dreaded killer cloud we have heard so much about but have never seen for ourselves until now. Its deadly tendrils are searching ahead, feeling their way forward in long yellow wisps, scenting me, searching for me. Then finding me out, the gas turns

paragraph and continue the story, concentrating on making your sentences detailed and intriguing! Julia turned back to the house. The door was now closed! Waiting on the step, Julia saw a shadow amongst the trees. Like an arrow, Julia shot after it. Silently, she edged her way through the dense trees. A crow flew up out of its nest, cawing loudly. In the clearing, Julia saw a tumbledown cottage. Curious, she made her way quietly forward.

I didnt know if I had the courage to do this. Just the thought of stepping through those deceptively heavy double doors sent shudders through me. No. I couldnt do it not a chance in hell. I could see it happening right in front of me. Id walk down theechoing corridor - eerily empty, as if an alien spaceship had whizzed down to Earth and robbed the school of its students and everything would be just fine. But as soon as my clammy hands would make contact with the cool, supposedly calming blue door handle, Id freeze. I couldnt face the disgusted stares and the accusing looks. The whispered taunts, the mocking jeers, the glances of pure, undisguised pity a wave of nausea washed over me at the notion.

No. Stop it Lily. I shook my mind from the bottomless pit it had sunken in to. A new beginning, remember? A fresh start, they said. Now, remember what the doctor told you dont panic. In and out. Inand out. Deep, soothing breaths, like the motion of a small dinghy boat, gently bobbing up and down on the rippling waves. Until a hurricane tears the sky from out of nowhere, and tosses the helpless boat around, a toddler playing with its toy, until it crashes with a tragic thud against some jagged rocks, sending shards of splintered wood showering everywhere. Leaving destruction in its wake. My mind was seriously messed up.What was wrong with me?Why couldnt I just get on with it like everybody else? For goodness sake Lily, get a grip. Why do I have to be the weird girl, the freak, the outcast? The nutcase. No! I wouldnt let this happen again. Not another breakdown. Not now. Not yet. I thrust my body forward with renewed determination, mechanically placing one stiff foot in front of the other, my heartbeat growing more erratic with each step until I arrived at the entrance to hell. Alright, maybe that was a tad overdramatic. But I had my reasons. Bile rose to the top of my throat, accompanied by the acrid, bitter taste of stomach acid, threatening to overflow. Wouldnt that make a great entrance? Swinging the door open with an extravagant flourish, like a cowboy about to swagger into a bar in a western and watching everyones faces as they get sprayed with a lovely, lukewarm shower of vomit. There, that No you cant, came a voice from somewhere inside my head. I ignored it and tentatively nudged the door open with my foot but my plan for a silent entrance backfired as it gave an embarrassing groan. How typical. Damn this ancient school and its rusty hinges. But there was no turning back now. The cacophonous roar of chattering teenagers came to an immediate halt, and twenty seven pairs of eyes snapped up to meet me. L-Lily? a faceless voice asked. Is that you? I wasnt quite sure who was the owner of the voice but I fought back the Niagara Falls forming behind my eyeballs to answer. Yeah, its me I broke off, forcing a weak, watery smile, which probably looked just as unconvincing as it felt. Before I could register any movement, arms encircled me, the force almost bowling me over and leaving me gasping for breath, like a fish out of water. Oh my gosh Lily. I missed you so much. How are you? You look good. An overpowering tide of greetings was launched at me. An odd, almost unfamiliar feeling, which I hadnt felt in a long time, surged through my veins and my facial muscles, unused for the past several months, quivered under the strain of the colossal

grin that broke out on my face. Hey guys, I began. Im glad to be back. Voices once again attacked me, a convoy of ships seeking their target. So how was the crazy house? I heard George quip. It was all right actually, Im better now, I chuckled in reply. George had never been one to beat about the bush, which I was thankful for. I laughed happily, realising just how much I had missed the light-hearted banter I shared with my friends. My friends. What was I thinking? Of course they wouldnt turn their backs on me.

Its probably very insignificant in the wider scale of things, after all Im a tiny speck in the giant hellhole that is the universe, but I can wallow in my own misery if I want. But since Im stronger than breaking down in the street and bawling my eyes out, I ran towards the girl with the ridiculous yellow duck umbrella and thrust my papers under it, personal space be damned. It all started like this. I was up until goodness knows when trying to work on this case for my boss and naturally, I fell asleep at my desk, nowhere near my alarm clock. I woke up half an hour after I was due at work, completely exhausted with drool running down my chin. Of course, because Im so incredibly lucky, my phone was out of charge so I couldnt check my e-mails on the train and halfway to the office, I noticed the rip across my pencil skirt. Id used my emergency outfit last week. But worst of all, more important than anything else, was that I missed my morning coffee. Anyone who knows me knows that I cannot be fully human unless Ive had my two espressos for breakfast and a coffee in work. I may have a slight caffeine addiction. So, there I was, all alone and lost. The case I was up half the

night working on got deleted by my boss secretary before the presentation, the coffee machine was broken and I was forced to walking home because I lost my purse. I was just waiting for another awful thing to happen to me to prove that the universe really hates when the rain starts. I shouldve known. I was walking down a street Ive never heard of in my life with a huge set of papers that dwarfed me entirely and no defences against the liquid barrage facing me. Its almost like the last thud of the battering ram before the doors open and the enemy leader mount my head on the castle walls. The girl in question looked at me, bewildered before a sudden gust of wind flew towards us forcing the umbrella out of her hands and ruining my life. We both stared at it fly away, my last beacon of hope shining like the sun against the gloom of the city before it disappeared from sight. The girl suddenly grabbed my wrist and tugged me under the roof of a closed caf. I looked towards my saviour, truly a knight in shining armour and find that most of her clothes and hands are covered in paint. The only part of her that appeared to have escaped it is her short auburn hair and her coat, theres even spots of green on her nose and cheeks like freckles. After making that discovery, I realised her free hand had been extended towards me for an embarrassingly long time, the other hand grasping what appeared to be a wrapped painting. I quickly shook her hand as she introduced herself as Rose. I replied rather shakily and listened as she explained that she couldnt really move as she couldnt afford to get her commission wet. I glanced towards the heavy rain, realising there was no way I could return home not knowing where I was when I realised she had been asking me a question. What was that? I mumbled.

Support the learning of others sensibly and constructively SMSC: Know that you get out what you put in! Homework Task 1: Write about a time when you felt ashamed of yourself Have you ever done something you regretted? I have. At the time I didnt realize what I was doing but this doesnt make me feel any better. I am a mild mannered, generally kind teenager. I am not the sort of person who bullies younger kids, steals sweets from shops or drinks in the street and I am definitely not the type of person who would scare an old lady. Or so I thought .. Last Tuesday, I had to take the train into the city. It was a cold, wet morning - just like youd expect it to be in January. As I said I am kind and well mannered so youd also think I was a thoughtful and organized sort too and I am. Waiting on the platform, I congratulated myself on how I had managed to be on time. When the train arrived, I sauntered on and was able to get a window seat and a table. I looked out of the window. I saw the sun creeping out from behind the clouds and settled down on the coarse, upholstered seat. I got out a packet of cookies I had brought for the journey and some

revision notes to skim through to pass the time. After a few minutes, the train jerked to a halt at the next stop. An old lady got on. As the train moved off again, she struggled forwards with her bag which looked like a huge square of carpet and which caught on every seat as she tried to pass. She dropped down with a thud into the seat opposite me. Being quite a large old lady, she found it difficult to squeeze herself and her bag into a comfortable position. She wheezed as she breathed in and out, emptying the contents of her bag on to the brown, plastic table. Glasses, sweets, snacks, tissues, tablets, pens and puzzle books covered the table. I wasnt best pleased but the old lady didnt care. She started a puzzle while munching though a packet of sweets. Trying to stay calm, I squeezed myself into the corner and tried to focus on my notes but ended up putting them down as I couldnt concentrate. I bet you cant believe what happened next?! Still looking at the puzzle she was working and without any warning, the old lady leaned over the table and took a cookie out of my packet! I was amazed. I coughed loudly. She did not look up! Then, her chubby, brown hand reached forward slowly and took another one! Crumbs of biscuit stuck to the sides of her mouth as she munched. As the train rattled on, I knew I had to stop her. Did I ask her what she was doing? Did I tell her politely she was eating my cookies? No, I reached forward and took one myself and crunched on it loudly. She looked at me in surprise, colour draining from her face. I could see she was feeling guilty so I quickly took another and another and another, eating them loudly while staring right at her. I wanted to show her what a rude old woman she was! Without speaking, she quickly began to gather up all her things. She shoved them all into her bag and pushed herself out of her seat and began staggering to the door. The train pulled up at the next stop and she got off. On the platform, I could see her hurry towards a younger lady, who put an arm around her and looked back at the train. As the train clattered off again, I picked up my revision notes with a broad smile. Underneath them was an unopened packet of cookies - my cookies. A cold sense of guilt spread through my body. Perhaps I was not the mild mannered and generally kind Sketch out the story mountain in your book. How does this story fit into the story mountain?

Mood Everyone was very excited as they waited for the bride. Everyone wanted to be the first to see her. Some people were a little bit emotional. Children are bored. It smells stuffy. Sunlight seeped through the stained glass windows, illuminating the pews of polished mahogany. Eagerly, necks craned backwards as hushed whispers of, can you see her yet? filled the echoing church, as the anticipation of the wedding guests reached its peak. Rows and rows of elaborate fascinators quivered, as the heads they belonged to struggled to contain their desperation to be the first to spot the bride. Delicately, handkerchiefs dabbed at the memories of long lost loves that had leaked from the corners of crinkled eyes. Occasionally, the squawk of a restless child, who longed to be out of the stuffy church, cut through the murmured small talk.
