Monday 22nd June

Good morning,


We hope you had a lovely weekend. Below is your work for today. Just remember to do what you can. There is an exciting sports competition for you to take part in this afternoon. Email us your results and we can send them to North Yorkshire sport.














Today, we are going to look at comprehension.

Here is a simple example of a comprehension question that you might find in an English lesson.

Tommy is wearing a grey jumper, round glasses and a blue hat.

Question: What colour hat is Tommy wearing?

If you can give the answer 'Tommy is wearing a blue hat', you have used your comprehension skills and shown you have understood the sentence correctly.

Comprehension becomes more challenging when the text is longer because you need to link together more facts and clues to understand what’s happening.


Follow the link to the BBC lesson. There is a short story to listen to but if you prefer, the text is attached below.



Answer the following questions in full sentences to show how well you have comprehended (understood) the story.

1. What did the Hare say he was very good at?

2. Which animal agreed to race the Hare? Why was this strange?

3. What did the Hare decide to do when he saw how slow the Tortoise was in the race?

4. What happened when the crowd started cheering?

5. Who won the race?

6. What lesson (or moral) did you learn from this story?



This week we will be finishing recapping fractions and starting to recap our work on decimals.
