To apply my reading skills to answer comprehension questions.


Homework book, blue pen and green pen. 


Complete the introductory quiz and record your score in your Homework book. Then, scroll up to the top of the page and click ‘Next Activity’.


Before starting, Mrs Fozzard will explain her reading challenge for you – this is optional. Always ask a parent/carer for their permission to take part in challenges that involve social media.


Word of the day (quarantined)– Pause the video once the word of the day is introduced. Write the word and meaning into your book then use the word in two different sentences. Find synonyms and antonyms. Again, answer the question displayed on the slides.


Mrs Fozzard will recap how to identify clues in reading comprehension questions to help you answer them. You may want to make notes on the skills needed to answer the different types of questions. She will then read the text. Make sure you follow along.


INDEPENDENT TASK – The extract is available on slides 4-9 and the questions are on slides 10-12. Write out the questions into your Homework books. Read the extract and answer the questions. Then resume the video to mark your work.


Spellings - Note down the spellings, (also available on the school website) and learn them using Look, Cover, Write and Check. Ensure you know the meaning of each word and try to use them in your writing or in a sentence.


Make sure you complete the final quiz. Record your score out of 6 in your Homework book.
