Developing Your Child's Comprehension Skills

Please find below some useful questions which can be used to help develop your child’s comprehension skills.  Please ensure that you are attempting to ask a range of questions especially those which aim to develop thinking skills, where your child has to think on a deeper level rather than merely finding the answer ‘right there’ in the text.  If you would like a printed version of these please speak to your child’s teacher.
