Welcome to Week 5 Birch Class. 

Week beginning Monday 4th May.


Reading Challenges


We have set you some Reading Comprehension Challenges this Week in Purple Mash. 

Can you complete them by next Friday 8th May?

There are five Chapters to read for and then some questions to answer:

  • Monday - Chapter 1; Sam and the Wet Day
  • Tuesday - Chapter 2; Sam and the Wet Day
  • Wednesday - Chapter 3; Sam and the Wet Day
  • Thursday - Chapter 4; Sam and the Wet Day
  • Friday - Chapter 5; Sam and the Wet Day

Read them carefully so that you can answer the questions accurately.

If it is tricky we will ask you to redo it so that you can read the chapter again.


We look forward to marking your work.

Good Luck from Miss Newton-Smith and Ms Beazley 😁
