Reading Comprehension

Reading comprehension is about showing how much we can understand from a text.
We have to become a bit like detectives to do well at this and think carefully about each question.
We need to remember to;
  • - answer the question
  • - explain why we think our answer is right
  • - provide some evidence to prove it.
