  1. Can I just ask why the tricky sheet uses the American ‘Mom’ rather than the British ‘Mum’? Thanks.

    • Good morning Fiona,
      Thank you for getting in touch with us at Classroom Secrets.
      Mom and Mum are both used as interchangeable synonym’s.
      Both indicate ones Mother.
      Thanks,
      Jack, Customer Service Administrator @ Classroom Secrets.

  2. There is an error on the Expert Level. The section with sentences beginning ‘Tami and Sarah …..’only show one sentence. It’s also missing a full stop. (Pointed out by my class!)
