Reading Comprehension - 60 Second Comprehensions
60 Second Comprehensions
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.
Today's TWO mini 60-Second Comprehensions are:
Ancient Egyptians: "An Extract from Howard Carter's Diary" - linked to our previous history topic
