Reading comprehension

Please read through the reading comprehension with your child and talk about it as you go.  If they were doing this task at school then they would be doing it as part of a guided group. This text is meant to be read and shared with an adult, so that you can discuss what you have read and talk about any words you find tricky or don't understand. It is not meant for you to read and complete on your own.

 

Each week you will have a reading comprehension to complete.

Read the text carefully and then write the answers to each of the questions, in sentences, on a piece of paper or in a notebook.

The first 5 questions are about VOCABULARY

The next 5 questions follow VIPERS, like we use in class.

 

V= VOCABULARY ( finding the meaning of words in context, other words that mean the same thing)

I= INFERENCE ( 'reading between the lines' and using clues from the text, without the author actually telling us.)

P= PREDICTION ( suggesting what might/could happen)

E= EXPLAIN ( giving details about what has happened)

R= RETRIEVE ( finding the answers from the text)

S= SUMMARISE ( a brief account of the main points of the story / a particular part of the story)

 

( The answers are there for you at the end, and you and your grown up can check through when you have finished.)
