Cloze Procedure – In The Nursery

The Woman in Black is a _ _ _ _ _ _ _ written by Susan Hill that tells the story of Arthur Kipps, a young _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ who is sent by his firm to Crythin Gifford, to attend the funeral of Mrs Alice Drablow. Whilst he is there he sees a mysterious _ _ _ _ _ dressed in black, who haunts him at every _ _ _ _. He sees her in the graveyard at the funeral, in Mrs Drablow’s house and on the marshes surrounding the _ _ _ _ _.

On one _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ he hears a strange bumping sound coming from a room upstairs when he is alone and sorting through papers belonging to Mrs Drablow. He hears them because he has a dog with him who _ _ _ _ _ _ him to the noise and the _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ of it. As the dog, who is called _ _ _ _ _ _, becomes agitated, so too does Kipps, to the point where he cannot move because he is experiencing so much _ _ _ _. In that chapter, _ _ _ _ _ and the reader are taken on a _ _ _ _ _ _ coaster ride of fearful emotions, resulting in an unsatisfactory ending to the chapter.

The novella is a well _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ and well written piece of English _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ and one that is aimed at children. It has been _ _ _ _ _ _ _ into a stage play upon its release as a _ _ _ _ and into two films, one from the BBC and the other by _ _ _ _ _ _ Films.
