French GCSE Reading WorkbookQuick View

French GCSE Reading Workbook

This 86-page workbook is based on the model answers to my writing workbook (available at and contains 3 reading worksheets for every topic in the new AQA French GCSE syllabus plus answers for every task at the end of the document. Ideal for reading practice and assessments in Key Stage 4, revision and independent work for Year 11, or extension work for more able Key Stage 3 students. This can also be used for cover lessons with non-specialists as the tasks are straightforward and there are answers. As well as the Word document, I have included a PDF in case the fonts are not available on certain computers and the formatting therefore doesn't work properly on the Word doc. All questions and answers are my own, based on the new specification GCSE reading papers, and the photos are from royalty-free websites and it is all therefore photocopiable.


The three Read and Think books encourage poor readers, especially older pupils, to read sentences and simple texts and understand what they read. Book 1 concentrates on short, simple sentences. Pupils must understand the sentences they read in order to perform the tasks and this ensures text comprehension. The 25 sheets contain a variety of tasks which appeal to a range of pupils, including older, poor readers. Pupils are encouraged to deduce, infer, and interpret information and events. Vocabulary is limited to high-frequency words and the emphasis is on reading: very little writing is required. Previously available through Easylearn.

Reading Comprehension

I went on an amazing course all to do with helping children with comprehension. I have put together a Power Point presentation with some activities for children to practice inferencing skills. I have taught this lesson to Year 6 pupils and they got a lot out of it. Ideally, you should follow this activity up by looking at a SAT’s based comprehension paper so that children can consolidate what they learnt from these activities.
