I can answer questions from a text.


1) Why did Jim and his mother make ‘slow progress’?


2) What had happened to Jim’s wooden horse?


3) What does ‘weary’ mean?


4) Why do you think none of the boys looked at each other or spoke?


5) Describe Jim’s bed, using words from the text.


6) Find 4 clues from this chapter that show that the place where Jim has been brought to is not a nice place.

I can read aloud using appropriate speed, volume and intonation.


Record yourself reading the following abridged part of the chapter. It has lots of different people speaking so you have plenty of accents and voices to have a go at. I have highlighted the different speakers in different colours to help you along.


"Where d'you live?" a voice said.

Jim sat up. Already it was getting dark. There were people round him and some where kneeling by his mother, trying to lift her.

"We used to live in a cottage," said Jim, "We had a cow and some hens."

"Where do you live now?" it was a different voice, a bit sharper than the last one. "You haven't got nowhere?" the same voice asked. 

Jim shook his head. Someone was doing something to his mother, rubbing her hands, it looked like, dabbing her face with a shawl. 

"Get them to the workhouse," someone said. "There's nothing we can do for her."
