This KS2 English quiz is our second on the subject of comprehension. Comprehension is the interpretation of what is read. When you're reading, you are engaging with the author. Authors use techniques to keep their readers guessing what will happen next and wondering what the characters are thinking. A good author never gives everything away at once. A good reader is able to use inference (using the available evidence to make a reasonable guess) and deduction (using the facts to come to a conclusion).
Next time you write a story, think carefully about the techniques you can use to make your reader enjoy the story even more.
See how well you can use these skills by trying this second Comprehension quiz.
