READING

KEY STAGE 2 READING

The reading test is a single paper with questions based on three passages of text. Your child will have one hour, including reading time, to complete the test. There are a selection of question types, including:

  • Ranking/ordering, e.g. ‘Number the events below to show the order in which they happen in the story’ 
  • Labelling, e.g. ‘Label the text to show the title of the story’ 
  • Find and copy, e.g. ‘Find and copy one word that suggests what the weather is like in the story’ 
  • Short constructed response, e.g. ‘What does the bear eat?’ 
  • Open-ended response, e.g. ‘Look at the sentence that begins Once upon a time. How does the writer increase the tension throughout this paragraph? Explain fully, referring to the text in your answer.’
