DAILY READING

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 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.

If you have ran out of books to read at home, have a look at this free online resource. 

You will need to register with an email address and password.

There are lots of eBooks to choose from on here.

In each pack below, are two comprehension activities: one fiction and one non-fiction. 

Please read through each text carefully and have a go at answering the questions.  Present your answers in full sentences. 

You can check your answers using the last page of each document. 

The first pack is pitched at Year 6 comprehension.  If you would like something a little easier, please use pack 2

A reminder of what VIPERS are:

 

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 (retell the main points in your own words)
