LO: To create mood


Activity 9

If you remember yesterday, you were asked to think about how the writer of the story creates atmosphere or mood, by describing the setting 'inside' the house and 'outside'.  The description of 'inside' contrasts with the 'outside' and it uses a sentence of 3 to build the description. 


  1. Look at the example in the yellow box on the document and you will see 3 things that the wind is doing 'outside': howled, rattling, shaking.  Have a go at writing your own versions of this sentence to create atmosphere, by telling your reader 3 things that the weather is doing 'outside'. (Remember the commas!)
  2. Now, look at the second page of the document and the example of the 'inside' sentence.  Again, it gives us 3 things that are happening inside the house: curtains were drawn. fire crackled, Jack read.  have a go at writing your own versions of 'inside' sentences by describing 3 things.  Look at the example on the sheet to help you with the structure.
