Some Christmas Carols are a little out of date. You task is to write at least three verses of a new Christmas carol about Christmas in the 21st century.

Make sure that you consider carefully what the message of your carol is. Perhaps it is about the reason that we celebrate Christmas, perhaps about how we might show others the Christmas spirit?

Success Criteria:

  • It must have a message
  • You should use high level vocabulary
  • You should use full punctuation
  • It doesn’t need to rhyme.

Year 7 and 8 Reading Homework – Due Monday 27th November

Read the extract and answer the questions in full sentences. Your teacher will direct you as to how many or which questions you should attempt.

Peter Pan: Text-focused questions

  1. What is unusual about the Darlings’ nanny?
  2. Nana is described as ‘prim’. What does this word mean? Write a definition.
  3. Find three more references in the text which present Nana in a similar manner to ‘prim’.
  4. Barrie writes that Nana ‘had belonged to no one in particular until the Darlings engaged her. She had always thought children important, however, and the Darlings had become acquainted with her in Kensington Gardens.’ How do the words ‘engaged’ and ‘acquainted’ help to make Nana seem a more appropriate nanny?
  5. Barrie writes ‘There is a room in the basement of Miss Fulsom’s school where the nurses wait.’ What tense is this written in, and how is this different from the rest of the extract? How does this help to make the story seem more realistic?
  6. What does the final sentence imply about the effect of Peter Pan’s arrival upon the Darling family?
