Reading Comprehension - KS2

Reading Comprehension – Key Stage Two

In Key Stage Two, Reading Comprehension is taught to the whole class daily. A class text is used and explored through both whole class and focus group teaching. The reading characters are used as the main driver of these sessions. Children are expected to analyse texts closely in order to be able to:

2a Give / explain the meaning of words in context
2b Retrieve and record information / identify key details from fiction and non-fiction
2c Summarise main ideas from more than one paragraph
2d Make inferences from the text / explain and justify inferences with evidence from the text
2e Predict what might happen from details stated and implied
2f Identify / explain how information / narrative content is related and contributes to meaning as a whole
2g Identify / explain how meaning is enhanced through choice of words and phrases
2h Make comparisons within the text
