  • Hello, there also seems to be a mistake in the first activity.  After the piece of dialogue "Riiight", should there not be a comma instead of a full stop, as 'he called wearily' follows it?

  • Great idea to help children with this new skills. In activity one there are only 4 missing words - 'dre-' is in the original version. Thanks

  • I really think that you need to state how many errors there actually are. This task would be tricky for adults. I think it's too complex and needs to be simplified to make this task achievable.

  • Hi, I think activity one also has an error or two. Third line is missing the word 'the' before same.Missing word in line 2 of the penultimate paragraph.
    I also found the final line of the second paragraph difficult to understand! '....scaling the telegraph pole sized upright' I can't fathom the use of the word sized in this situation

  • The third activity only has one error in the whole text. The answers say that there should be missing apostrophes, but there's only one apostrophe missing from the word 'didn't' on first line.
