(0)
This resource includes questions for the whole of the book ‘Skellig’ - I have used these questions in Guided and Shared Reading, homework and intervention groups.

Year 6 Reading comprehension for classics

Year 6 Reading comprehension for classics

(0)
This PowerPoint leads the children through two extracts from classics (Lord of the Flies and Treasure Island) - there are questions linked to the texts (including vocabulary choices, inference, and summarising the text). Prompts then follow to allow children the chance to still work independently, with clues to the mark allocations. There then follows the mark scheme. This process is repeated for both extracts. There are also two ‘Going deeper’ questions. I have used this with my children in class with great success. Due to the complexity of the text, this can be used with older children.

I used these ‘6 a day’ questions at the start of every Maths lesson - there are 75 days worth, and the question become progressively harder. They cover everything which will appear in the Arithmetic KS2 test. It covers the four calculations, percentages and fractions (alongside BODMAS and squares, cubed numbers). My children in Y6 love working through these 6 a day, and after doing it for 2 years, I know it has great impact on their understanding, and also the SATs results!
