  1. 1. “Demdike” means sneaky.

    2. Cally was worried about Zeph’s health because the girls that died were 9 and 10 and zeph was 9 so cally thought she was in danger.

    3. I think mumbo jumbo means rubbish because the man said “ah, it’s all mumbo jumbo if you ask me,” which implies that he doesn’t believe it happened.

    4. James and dandy weren’t there because they had gotten scared and run away.

    5. I think the rosebud had come alive because of magic as rosebuds don’t just bloom again in a dead bush, and I think the spirit was telling Cally and Zeph to stay.

  2. 1) The found and copied word that means sneaky is crafty .
    2) Cally started to worry about Zeph because Janet was one , who haunted two girls and they were nine years old and Zeph was nine too. Also , Zeph could’ve been taken and never return .
    3. I think the word mumbo jumbo means something that is nonsense or rubbish.
    4. I think James and Dandy disappeared because maybe Cally’s mum knows them from somewhere or James and Dandy don’t want to see her .
    5. A rosebud has appeared on a dead bush . I know this because in the text it says “The sun was shinning “. This means it was nice sunny day and flowered were growing .

  3. 1. Crafty is the word that means sneaky in the paragraph.

    2.Cally was worried about Zeph’s saftey as an old man told them about the Haunting of Rose Cottage and how Jennet takes girls around 9 to 10 and gives them to demdike as a replacement for herself knowing Demdike is blind .She was scared that was going to happen to her little sister Zeph . The second reason Cally was worried about Zeph was that she had been acting up recently and even had a new imaginary friend named Janet which made the old man’s hypothesis start sounding more accurate.

    3.the phrase mumbo jumbo is language causing or intended to cause confusion or bewilderment.

    4. I’m not sure about this question but I’ll just have to assume that Dandy and James were too shy to talk to Cally’s mum.

    5. I think a rosebud appeared on the dead bush as a sign that Rose Cottage was free from any witch or spirit’s restraint and the rosebud signifies a fresh new start at Rose Cottage.

    I got 5/5 on my questions on purple mash.

    4.The reason that Dandy and James disappeared is because they saw Cally’s mum coming and didn’t want to be seen.

  22. 1) “crafty” means sneaky.
    2) Cally was worried about Zeph because the girls who died before were 9 or 10, and Zeph was 9. I know this because the text says “ How old were these girls, Edna and Anne, when they went missing?”

    5) I think there was a rosebud on the dead-looking bush because it was a spirit telling Zeph and Cally so stay at Rose Cottage.

    • 4) I think James and Dandy went because they didn’t want Cally’s mum to know about them. I think that because the text says “Kingdom and James came over… They’d both just disappeared.”

    James disappeared because he didn’t want Dandy to go into part of the woods where it’ll never come back.
    I think a rosebud appeared on the dead bush to show that they were happy and there were no more hauntings in Rose Cottage.

  24. 1. “Demdike” means sneaky.
    2. Cally was worried about Zeph’s health because the girls that died were 9 and 10 so that’s why Cally got scared of zeph.
    3. I think mumbo jumbo means rubbish because the man said “ah, it’s all mumbo jumbo if you ask me”.
    4. James and dandy weren’t there because they had gotten scared .
    5. I think the rosebud had come alive because of magic as rosebuds.

    I have done the task on purple mash . Here are my answers

  25. 1.) In that paragraph “ Well said,” the word means sneaky is crafty as he described Janet as being crafty. Janet is a ghost girl that haunts other girls who are 10 or 9 at Rose Cottage. There is a witch called Owd Demidike who wants her family back and she tries to get Janet but Janet tricks Demidike ( as Demidike is blind) into taking the girl that she haunts.

    2.) Cally was worried about Zeph’s saftey as the old man told them about the Haunting of Rose Cottage and how Janet takes girls her age and leads them to deaths door. Janet has already done this to three girls and that is why none wants to live in Rose Cottage. That is one reason why Cally is concerned but the other reason is that she thinks that Janet will give Zeph to Demidike to trick her.

    3.) The phrase mumbo jumbo means it is all rubbish and nonsense to the person saying it. At this point I would say that too if I were the old man as witches do not seem real and there is no proof that witches exist so I would say that they are not real. But in that fictional world thay are. He also believes that they are not real as he was told this at a young age and he doesn’t think it is real though. But he does know everything about it even if he doesn’t believe in them.

    4.) I think that James and Dandy were ghosts coming to help put Demidike back into her grave and make sure Janet doesn’t do anything crazy again. I think they were the peacekeepers but the other times they were too late. If James never told Cally and Kingdom to see the grave of Demidike , Zeph would be forever missing… As he got them interested in witches so they learned about them. And beacause of that they were able to save Zeph.

    5.) I think that a rosebud appeared on the dead looking bush as happiness was spread around in the first time since Rose Cottage was built. And I think that more rosebuds will bloom the longer and happier they are at Rose Cottage. Hopefully, The entire bush will have bloomed. As there is no witches any more on Pendle hill maybe it will become a hapiness driven thing. And the hill will not look as dull as it used to be. The end.

  26. Q1.for robbing a bank
    2.because he was in prison for 6 whole years
    3. because he weren’t like that usually he does other stuff
    4.Because they found out that court was practicing syber so the teenagers

    2 “he wasn’t used to the sun”

    5 “I think they can’t do that because the detective might know something”.

    2) She was worried because all the girls that went missing were 9 and so was Zeph

    3) The word that the old man said “mumbo jumbo” means we’re it’s all nonsense.

    2 Cally was worried because after the old man told them the story they knew Zeph was in danger Because Jennet was 9 and so is Zeph and she could be mistaken for Jennet

    3 Mumbo jumbo means that in his opinion it is all a myth or a lie

  33. 2) they worried about zephs safety because another person who was nine or ten years old they lost their family and zeph lost her family and the other person fell and died in a well!
