Develop comprehension skills of fiction texts using our year 6 reading comprehension.

Pupils will read an original narrative by Jon Mayhew, ‘The Glittering Collar’, and answer comprehension questions to develop vocabulary, retrieval and inference skills. Questions state which section of the text the pupils should refer to to support answering 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 Glittering Collar
  • 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.

    - predicting what might happen from details stated and implied
