Reading 60 Second Comprehensions
HOME LEARNING - SUMMER TERM WEEK 4 - READING ACTIVITIES
Please continue to read each day. This can be to an adult, quietly to yourself or alongside an audio book. Try to read a variety of books, including fiction stories, non-fiction information and maybe some poetry!

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:
Rainforests: "The Ultimate Jungle Survival Guide" - Question 4 in just 15 words will be a challenge!
Stone Age: "The Hunter with a Heart" - linked to our new history topic. Q3+4 will make you think
You are more than welcome to do more comprehensions if you wish ... or maybe do a bit of research on the world rainforests as a fun extra on Google search and Google maps
