"A Taste for Life"

Any predictions? Daphne Raydor worked in the bookkeeping department at Rapelec, Inc. Her capacity for work – her appetite for it – was insatiable. In January, when accountants go mad closing last years’ books, Daphne flourished. She worked best in the night’s dark hours, comparing ledgers and totting up columns with greedy delight.

Section 2 - Paragraphs 2-5 Questions on Section 2 Section 3
Paragraphs 6-11 Complete character grid on Sylvia
Write 5 sentences which
begin with ONE of the following words

On Inside Outside

Tired by the long walk, the children quickly fell asleep.
Did your sentence have;
a main clause
a subordinate clause
punctuation (comma) to separate them? Why bother with sentences
like these?

What effect do they have?

Emotional involvement -
we share the character's sense of
anxiety - by having to wait until
the end of the sentence.

Giving information
the writer wants us to know what has caused
the children to be tired. Events are in a chronological

Add these to your
mind-map... So, now for the detail,

Top tip - start in close-up
