5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read, 25 Dec 2012
This review is from: Brilliant Activities for Reading Comprehension, Year 6 (Paperback)
These series are the resource tutors and parents have been waiting for. Interesting for the age group (not the usual boring stories) and easy to follow. What a wonderful new and worthwhile tool for teaching!

Beats Bond and the other previous standard texts hands down.

This review is from: Brilliant Activities for Reading Comprehension, Year 6 (Paperback)
I don't know how other teachers feel, but I've always found it hard to get hold of good, solid comprehension books. Either the texts aren't challenging enough or, as is more usual, the questions are primarily literal and don't support the development of inference skills. That's where this book is different.

The questions do challenge children and require them to think more deeply about the material they've read. Pupils are asked open questions and which require evidence from the text. Furthermore, the stories are mostly fun and engaging, which is no mean feat in the age of iPods and DSs.

My one quibble was the quality of the writing. While the plotting is interesting, at times the writing is a bit clunky and there are often too many characters - but that's just a small gripe from a moany English teacher!

I would also like to echo what the other reviewer said - this is a really great series and they are really worth investing in.
