Reading


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 (saying what happened in a shorter way)
 
(The answers are there for you at the end, and you and your grown up can check through when you have finished)
