Week 7 Homework for Years 7, 8 & 9
14.6.14


Describing a place

Look at this extract from ‘Coraline’ by Neil Gaiman

  1. In your book, create two columns, marked ‘nouns’ and ‘adjectives’.  Create a list of all the nouns in the extract, and all the adjectives.  Compare them – does the list of nouns and adjectives differ in tone?
  2. What sort of place is this?  What do you imagine will happen in this setting?
  3. Re-write this description of a garden, changing adjectives and nouns to create a different tone.
  4. Write a description of a garden or park you know.  Write at least three paragraphs, and use a range of different word types to give your reader a vivid picture of the place.


The day after they moved in, Coraline went exploring.
She explored the garden. It was a big garden: at the very back was an old tennis court, but no-one in the house played tennis and the fence around the court had holes in it and the net had mostly rotted away; there was an old rose garden, filled with stunted, flyblown rose-bushes; there was a rockery that was all rocks; there was a fairy ring, made of squidgy brown toadstools which smelled dreadful if you accidentally trod on them.
There was also a well. Miss Spink and Miss Forcible made a point of telling Coraline how dangerous the well was, on the first day Coraline's family moved in, and warned her to be sure she kept away from it. So Coraline set off to explore for it, so that she knew where it was, to keep away from it properly.
She found it on the third day, in an overgrown meadow beside the tennis court, behind a clump of trees -- a low brick circle almost hidden in the high grass. The well had been covered up by wooden boards, to stop anyone falling in. There was a small knot-hole in one of the boards, and Coraline spent an afternoon dropping pebbles and acorns through the hole, and waiting, and counting, until she heard the plop as they hit the water, far below.
Coraline also explored for animals. She found a hedgehog, and a snake-skin (but no snake), and a rock that looked just like a frog, and a toad that looked just like a rock.
There was also a haughty black cat, who would sit on walls and tree stumps, and watch her; but would slip away if ever she went over to try to play with it.
