Reading and understanding texts

Home learning focus

To show understanding of a text by answering comprehension questions.

This lesson includes:

  • one video to explain what 'comprehension' means

  • one video telling the story of The Prince Who Thinks He Is A Rooster

  • three activities


When you read a text and show you understand it by answering questions, this is called comprehension.

You use comprehension skills all the time in everyday life. For example, when you work out what a sign means, watch a film or listen to a podcast.

You often need to link together facts and clues to properly comprehend (understand) what’s happening in a text.

Watch this video to see how to do this.
