Year 6: Night of the Gargoyles

Year 6 have been reading Night of the Gargoyles by Eve Bunting. We examined how the author uses various writing techniques: expanded noun phrases and adverbials to add description; short sentences to add tension. We wrote the scene in which the watchman notices the gargoyles moving and tries to explain the danger to his boss. We used the opportunity to include correctly punctuated dialogue. Thank you to Oliver, Fergus and Claudia for editing the document so that it is nicely presented.
