REPLACING VERY Very is not the only word that would fit in the spaces. Read the passage through first. Replace VERY with an alternative word. It was a very cold day and I had a very bad cold. I had a very bad headache and a very sore throat. I wanted to go for a walk because I was very bored so I went to find very warm clothes to put on. I found a very thick jumper and a pair of gloves which were very old. I fetched a very tired dog from from his very cosy basket and tried to entice him out with a very tasty biscuit but he was not going to budge. Eventually I decided to stay in and watch a very funny film on the television.
