This Stig of the Dump Chapter 1 Comprehension has differentiated questions and activities to be used in a Whole Class Reading session based on the first chapter of the popular novel by Clive King. In the first chapter, Barney is staying with his grandmother for the holidays. She warns him not go to the edge of the chalk pit, which is now used as a dumping ground, but Barney does not listen to her warning and falls into the pit. He meets a young boy named Stig who lives in the dump and they become friends. When he finally gets home, his grandmother and sister think Stig is Barney's imaginary friend. We recommend using this novel with Year 3 or Year 4.
