You are advised to spend about 45 minutes on part a) and 30 minutes on part b). For part a), you should focus only on the extracts here rather than referring to the rest of your studied text. a) Compare how special places are presented in these two extracts. You should consider: • the situations and experiences faced by the characters • how the characters react to these situations and experiences • how the writers’ use of language and techniques creates effects. [20] AND b) Explore another moment in Never Let Me Go where a place is important. [20] Extract 1 from: Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro In this extract, near the end of the novel, Kathy and Ruth have taken Tommy to see the old boat that they have been told about. Actually, we hadn’t really stepped into a clearing: it was more that the thin woods we’d come through had ended, and now in front of us there was open marshland as far as we could see. The pale sky looked vast and you could see it reflected every so often in the patches of water breaking up the land. Not so long ago, the woods would have extended further, because you could see here and there ghostly dead trunks poking out of the soil, most of them broken off only a few feet up. And beyond the dead trunks, maybe sixty yards away, was the boat, sitting beached in the marshes under the weak sun. ‘Oh, it’s just like my friend said it was,’ Ruth said. ‘It’s really beautiful.’ We were surrounded by silence and when we started to move towards the boat, you could hear the squelch under our shoes. Before long I noticed my feet sinking beneath the tufts of grass, and called out: ‘Okay, this is as far as we can go.’ The other two, who were behind me, raised no objection, and when I glanced over my shoulder, I saw Tommy was again holding Ruth by the arm. It was clear, though, this was just to steady her. I took long strides to the nearest dead tree trunk, where the soil was firmer, and held onto it for balance. Following my example, Tommy and Ruth made their way to another tree trunk, hollow and more emaciated than mine, a short way behind to my left. They perched on either side of it and seemed to settle. Then we gazed at the beached boat. I could now see how its paint was cracking, and how the timber frames of the little cabin were crumbling away. It had once been painted a sky blue, but now looked almost white under the sky. 5 10 15 20 7 © OCR 2022 J352/11 Jun22 Turn over Extract 2 from: The Loney by Andrew Michael Hurley In this extract, the narrator is returning to the Loney – a dangerous place he visited when a child and a place that he has unpleasant memories of, and avoids coming back to where possible. 1lint – grey fluff (usually found on clothes) 5 10 15 Link to material: https://www.google.co.uk/books/edition/The_Loney/AW6yBgAAQBAJ? hl=en&gbpv=1&dq=The+Loney&printsec=frontcover, pp 4 -5.

You are advised to spend about 45 minutes on part a) and 30 minutes on part b). For part a), you should focus only on the extracts here rather than referring to the rest of your studied text. a) Compare how battles between animals and humans are presented in these two extracts. You should consider: • the situations and experiences faced by the characters • how the characters react to these situations and experiences • how the writers’ use of language and techniques creates effects. [20] AND b) Explore another moment in Animal Farm where animals and humans interact. [20] Extract 1 from: Animal Farm by George Orwell This extract describes the start of the Battle of the Cowshed. As the human beings approached the farm buildings, Snowball launched his first attack. All the pigeons, to the number of thirty-five, flew to and fro over the men’s heads and dropped their dung on them from mid-air; and while the men were dealing with this, the geese, who had been hiding behind the hedge, rushed out and pecked viciously at the calves of their legs. However, this was only a light skirmishing manoeuvre, intended to create a little disorder, and the men easily drove the geese off with their sticks. Snowball now launched his second line of attack. Muriel, Benjamin, and all the sheep, with Snowball at the head of them, rushed forward and prodded and butted the men from every side, while Benjamin turned round and lashed at them with his small hoofs. But once again the men, with their sticks and their hobnailed boots, were too strong for them; and suddenly, at a squeal from Snowball, which was the signal for retreat, all the animals turned and fled through the gateway into the yard. The men gave a shout of triumph. They saw, as they imagined, their enemies in flight, and they rushed after them in disorder. This was just what Snowball had intended. As soon as they were well inside the yard, the three horses, the three cows and the rest of the pigs, who had been lying in ambush in the cowshed, suddenly emerged in t [Show More]
