Hopefully you now have the hang of these tasks. These are very short pieces of text (around 100-150 words) with accompanying questions that focus on vocabulary, retrieval, prediction, summarising and inference. There is an accompanying answer sheet ... so no peaking first!
There is a guidance sheet for parents to explain how to use the comprehension and the types of questions.
We have suggested two specific comprehensions for this week:
Animals: "Emma's Puppy Problem" - Question 4 - always tricky to sum up in less than 20 words, but a great skills to learn!
Extreme Weather: "A Storm is Brewing" - Question 4 - you may need to look up what the word 'sauntered' means to help you with this one!
