Reading comprehension

You are going to read an extract called Rainforest Deforestation.  What does the word ‘deforestation’ mean? Can you remember we explored this in a science lesson? 

Please read though the text once. Then in your English book, write the title of the text and the date. Please re-read the text and note down any words that you do not know the meaning of. You can discuss these with an adult, research it, find a synonym or definition of the word and write it down. This will go towards building up a vocabulary dictionary! 

Once you have done the above, you can begin to have a go at some of the questions. 

The text comes with three sets of questions, this can be distinguished by the amount of stars they are given. I would like everybody to have a go at the questions that have two stars (middle ability). If you find this easy, then have a go at the questions that have three stars. But if you find it too tricky, have a go at the questions with 1 star. If you think two stars is the level for you, then stick with it! 

If you can/would like to then you can print the questions and text off and stick it into your English book.
