Comprehension

Inspiring KS1 and KS2 comprehension resources

We understand that good comprehension requires a range of different knowledge and skills – children need a clear understanding of text structures, a broad vocabulary, excellent inference skills, and strong reading stamina.

To help you embed these comprehension skills at key stage 1 and key stage 2, build your children’s confidence in the reading comprehension SATs paper, and develop a real love of reading, we’ve put together a range of resources and practice tests to support your school.
