6R 15/5 – Quick comprehension wk 3

Hi Year 6!

This term we are going to be completing some quick ten minute reading comprehensions. Each friday I will post the text and the relevant questions; there will be around 8 questions you will need to answer! Today’s text is fictional and tells the story of a magical watch. How would you feel if you went to sleep and woke up the next day; only to realise you were reliving the same day, over and over again?

Please answer the questions in full sentences in the comments below. Each comprehension should take approximately ten minutes to complete! Your teachers will be online to help you with any obstacles you face.

Challenge: could you create your own comprehension question (for the teachers to answer) using the given text.
