Reading Comprehension


Have a go at reading the information in the Reading Comprehension activity below.

Children should read the text and then answer the questions, giving as much detail as possible. Sometimes they are asked to answer in full sentences, so please encourage them to do this where appropriate. 

The reading task guidance gives you an outline of the type of questions used in these comprehension exercises - and some ideas of the type of questions that you can use when reading at any time with your children at home.
