What do you notice about the way this passage is written? Look at the each line ending.

Why is ‘interesting’ written in italics (sloped writing)?










Friday - Inference 

  • Why has Mr Wolf ‘got a nerve’ when he sends the game to Red Riding Hood and signs it: ‘ A Merry Christmas, dear’?
  • He’s all ‘.of a quiver..’ How is the Jolly Christmas Postman feeling when he visits The Wolf?
  • Why is it ‘….a letter he’d rather not deliver…’?
  • The clouds are hanging low - what does this mean?
  • He feels a ‘kiss’ upon his cheek- What is happening?
