Reading Comprehension Texts and Questions

The Computing Reading Comprehension Texts come with a number of information texts that allow the pupils to learn new vocabulary and make connections to the computing curriculum – a skill also crucial to success in English.

The Information Texts

Each Teacher’s Pack comes with a series of information texts and questions. Not all questions are on the same level. Some questions are easier to answer: others are more tricky, but come with higher rewards!

The questions include the following six levels of learning. These 6 levels can be used to structure the learning objectives, lessons, and assessments.

  • Remembering
  • Understanding
  • Applying
  • Analysing
  • Evaluating
  • Creating

Processing, thinking and articulating, all rely on language skills. If children can accurately read and process information of any type, then this supports reasoning and deeper understanding in all curriculum areas. By making links in literacy lessons to foundation content being taught in, the foundation subjects will support deeper and more flexible understanding of literacy.
