Develop comprehension skills when answering questions about poetry using our year 4 reading comprehension.

Pupils will read an original poem by Joshua Seigal ‘The Tropics’ and answer questions to develop vocabulary, retrieval and inference skills. Questions state which section of the poem the pupils should use to help answer the questions. Comprehension questions about the whole text are also included to develop summarising and prediction skills and opportunities to make comparisons within texts where appropriate. All questions are linked to the content domains assessed at the end of key stage 2 for targeted question practice where needed.

This primary resource pack includes:

  • Text: The Tropics
  • Comprehension questions about the text
  • Comprehension question answer sheet
  • Content Domain coverage sheet

How could I use this resource?
The comprehension could be used as part of whole class or small group reading sessions, reading and discussing the questions for each section. The content domains can be used to identify question types for targeted comprehension practice .
The resource could also be used as an assessment tool, with pupils completing the reading comprehension independently.

National Curriculum English programme of study links
Pupils should be taught to understand what they read, in books they can read independently, by:
- checking that the text makes sense to them, discussing their understanding, and explaining the meaning of words in context
- asking questions to improve their understanding of a text
- drawing inferences such as inferring characters’ feelings, thoughts and motives from their actions, and justifying inferences with evidence
- predicting what might happen from details stated and implied
- identifying main ideas drawn from more than 1 paragraph and summarising these
- identifying how language, structure, and presentation contribute to meaning
