How to deal with a long reading comprehension

Fab English ideas

With my 6emes (many of whom began learning English in September) we have recently started looking at long, scary texts.

When the pupils first see the texts they areā€¦ well, scared.

Before we look at the questions I get the pupils to draw a cartoon strip of events, this means they can check their understanding before even looking at the exercises.

We also get to laugh at each others drawing skills!
