How to be Brilliant at Reading Comprehension (Fiction) by May Stevenson

Brilliant Activities for Reading Fiction contains comprehension activities to help primary school pupils learn the key features of stories and poems and develop strategies for reading them critically. Most of the photocopiable sheets allow for differentiation by outcome and so may be used in mixed ability classes. Differentiated worksheets are included where necessary so that children of lower ability have more guidance or less to do in quantity. Extension activities are given to challenge the more able, and follow-up activities enable teachers to extend the work further. Activities range from looking at descriptions of characters from 'classic texts' and analysing the features of good story openings to looking at alliteration in poems and investigating humorous prose.
