Reading Comprehensions

Keep up to date with what is happening in the world by reading these child-friendly newspaper articles and completing the comprehension questions based on their content!

In addition to our non-fiction newspapers, it is expected that you read each day at home. Reading can take the form of anything, whether that be a menu, an instruction guide; or a good book! 

Here are 7 books that we highly recommend for Year 6 children which are of fantastic quality and help develop your child's taste in reading, expand their vocabulary and let their imaginations grow:

Skellig by David Almond

The Arrival by Eric Tan

River Boy by Tim Bowler

Clockwork by Philip Pullman

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien 

Holes by Louis Sachar

Fireweed by Jill Paton Walsh



Continue practicing your letter formation and accurate joins through our online handwriting site. Challenge yourself through different formations, patterns and skills so that your writing stands out from the crowd!

Please send any completed work at the end of the week. Additionally if you have any questions regarding the work required do not hesitate to contact us in Year 6.
