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)
