Reading Books

Children read and work on their comprehension skills everyday. We ask that parents comment in the children’s reading records so that we know how they are getting on at home.

According to the new curriculum, the reading comprehension objectives for KS1 are mainly split into four question categories:
1.Comprehension/Retrieval
2. Inference / Relate
3. Language for Effect
4. Themes, Structures and Conventions

Here are some examples of Questions you might like to use whilst reading with your child.

Who was the storyteller? How do you know?

Which is your favourite part? Why?

Predict what you think is going to happen next.  Why do you think this?

Who would you like to meet most in the story? Why?

Is this a place you could visit? Why/why not?

What do you think would happen next if the story carried on?

How is the main character feeling at the start/middle/end of the story?

Were you surprised by the ending? Is it what you expected? Why/why not?

Have you ever been in a similar situation to the character? What happened?

How would you have felt in the same situation?

What would you have done differently to the character in the book?

How would you feel if you were treated in the same way as the main character?

What did the story make you think of?
