Guided Reading

Today we are going to attempt a 2 mark and a 3 mark questions. You will be very familiar with it by now, but skim read the text if you want to remind yourself of the plot! For these questions, remember you need to give a longer answer that uses evidence from the text to support it.


2 mark question

What do you think will happen next in the story? Make reference to the text to support your answer.

To answer this question you need to think about what has happened and what the characters may choose to do next, based on this. You may want to think about how the characters are feeling and whether they have both gone through or not. Make sure you refer to the story so far in your answer.


3 mark question

How do Toby’s emotions differ as the story progresses? Use evidence from the text to support your answer.

For the full three marks you need to explain: how he is feeling at the start and how you know this; then how do his emotions change when he finds the portal and explain how we know; finally how does he feel at the end of the extract.


I will post the answers later today.
