Year 6 reading comprehensions with answers (10 of them!)

(0)
Here are 9 reading comprehensions that I gave my year 6 class for their Autumn Term homework. I chose these books because they are in our reading corner and I wanted to encourage the children to read them by giving them a little taster. The books are: ‘The Explorer’ by KatherineRundell, ‘When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit’ by Judith Kerr, ‘Little Women’ by Louisa May Alcott and ‘A Monster Calls’ by Patrick Ness. I gave them a reading comprehension on the importance of reading to encourage them to read more! Finally, there is a reading comprehension about Malala Yousafzai and Marcus Rashford to inspire them! The reading comprehensions are mostly suited for MAs and HAs but could definitely be given to some of your higher LAs. The style of questions involve a range of skills that come up in SATs papers and I have also included the answers at the bottom of each document to make it quicker to mark.

I have also included the text.

This is a Powerpoint that contains 12 complete lessons that could be taught straight away because there are pictures of the play on the slides. These lessons include differentiation (sentence starters for LAs and grammatical challenges for your HA writers). These were lessons that I made for my class during lockdown but can definitely be used in class and adapted to contain more drama activities. They really enjoyed this unit of work which included writing a formal letter, informal diary entries, play script writing, work on direct speech punctuation, descriptive writing and some role play. I will uploade the next batch of lessons when I finish teaching them.
