A little reminder about how important it is to read every day
and now is the perfect time to read your favourite books you have at home!
Don't forget if you are on AR, you can access the AR Reading scheme at home too.
Check your book is on the scheme and then complete a quiz. Just follow the links below.

This week you have a non-fiction reading comprehension to complete.
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.
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 this week.
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= SEQUENCE ( the order of events in the story)
( The answers are there for you at the end, and you and your grown up can check through when you have finished)
