Class 4 – WK 30/03/20 – Reading comprehension

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.

Courage

Courage is not the absence of fear, but the willingness to overcome that fear.”
Nelson Mandela

Thought of the Day

Being courageous can mean different things to different people. For example, one person may think it easy to speak in front of a large audience, whilst another would need to find lots of courage to do this. Everyone faces challenges from time to time, and we have to find courage to overcome them.
Talk together about:
• The different challenges that each family member faces
• Who or what helps us find courage?
• Is there someone that we admire because of the courage that they have shown?
