Listen to when Mrs Curry says,

‘When they thought the sea could not be any more angry, waves came that were as big as mountains and it looked certain their boat would be washed away.’

What words did Mrs Curry emphasise? She uses these words to create expression when reading.

Watch the video again and list any words that Mrs Curry expresses when she is reading. When Mrs Curry emphasises a word, she may change her voice, it might get louder or softer.
