Reading Comprehension - 60 Second Comprehensions

60 Second Comprehensions

Hopefully you are getting the idea of these from yesterday :-)


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: "Friendly Felines" - linked to our previous history topic

Animals & Living Things: "Great Galapagos" - linked to our autumn science topic on animals
