Reading Resources


Good comprehension draws from word and linguistic knowledge (in particular of vocabulary and grammar) and on knowledge of the world. Comprehension skills develop through pupils’ experience of high-quality texts and discussion, as well as from reading and discussing a range of stories, poems and non-fiction.


To assist with this, we have created the following table as a starting point for a discussion about a text you may be reading with your child.
