"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

S2 Week 1

Monday- Thursday

For this week's Reading we will be focusing on developing comprehension skills and checking that what we have read makes sense. It is recommended that the attached booklet is completed in an hour however we certainly are not expecting this to be carried out as a test so please just take your time and complete it as and when you can (e.g. 15 minutes each day from Monday- Thursday). Discussing the text and questions/ answers is a great way of developing comprehension skills too so please feel free while carrying this activity out at home.


How to use: you will need to read the texts (top link) and answer the questions in the booklet (2nd link). Answers can be found in the Mark Scheme (3rd link) if needed. Remember to take your time and read the questions carefully!


N.B: questions can be answered in the jotter provided in your pack/ on paper, we certainly aren't expecting you to print the resources. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any help or have any questions :)


Free reading! Enjoy reading your favourite/ current book and please send any recommendations to the Class Blog. You could always write and share your own book review for your friends :)
