David Walliams is recording chapters of him reading his book 'The Boy in the Dress'. Previous chapter recordings will be available for a little longer and are well worth listening to! Click on the link below.


We want you to continue to enjoy your reading.


You could try:

  • Reading to your pet
  • Shared reading with another member of your family
  • Reading a bedtime story to a younger brother or sister
  • Watching a short clip of someone reading from a book - try one of these links:
  1. Roald Dahl's 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' read by Sir Michael Palin 
  2. Roald Dahl's 'Matilda' read by Eniola Aluko
  3. Roald Dahl's 'James and the Giant Peach' read by Bella Ramsey

Further reading based videos can be found in the National Literacy Trust Virtual School Library.




Over this half term we will provide links to resources which can help you to develop the different skills you will need for effective reading comprehension.

Each week, there will be a PowerPoint introducing and explaining the skill and three comprehension activities.

You and your family can choose the days on which you would like to complete these reading comprehension activities so that it fits in with everything else you have going on at home!


This week's reading comprehensions are:

1. The King of the Polar Bears

2. The Shield Bug

3. The Tiger and his Farm

These 'Cassie the Commentator' reading comprehensions invite readers to express their opions about what they have read.

Please Note: The answers are included at the end of each comprehension - please complete the activity first before checking your answers!



For further ideas and advice on supporting your child with their reading see the 'Year 4 Reading with your child' guide below. You might also like to print off the 'Questions for Reading Bookmark' which provides ideas for questions you can ask when reading with your child.
