War Horse Chapter 10 Comprehension for Whole Class Guided Reading includes differentiated questions and activities based on chapter ten of the popular novel by Michael Morpurgo. We recommend using this novel with Year 5 & Year 6. In this chapter, Joey and Topthorn settle into their new roles pulling the ambulance cart. Each day they carry the wounded soldiers from the front line back to the hospital tent and each night they are cared for by young Emilie and her Grandfather. A soldier finds an Iron Cross on the ground and gives it to Joey and Topthorn to share as a symbol of their bravery. Over winter, Emilie becomes ill with pneumonia. While Joey and Topthorn are pulling the cart through the snow, the soldiers realise it is Christmas Day. When they return to their stable that night, Emilie's grandfather tells them she has pulled through.
