The passages in Brilliant Activities for Reading Comprehension series have been trialled in schools to ensure that they will grab pupils’ attention and so help them to develop a love of reading.

The comprehension passages cover a range of genres, from newspaper articles and descriptive reports, to plays, stories and poems. The 3rd edition contains over a third new passages, including many new non-fiction pieces linked to the history curriculum. 

The passages and the questions gradually increase in difficulty as you progress through each book, and through the series, encouraging children to develop their ability to read for meaning and use a range of strategies to engage with the text.

The questions for all the passages have been completely rewritten to link more closely to the reading content domains and to ensure a mixture of short and long question types. The extension activities will stretch more able pupils and make differentiation easy.

The books are ideal for ensuring children develop higher order reading comprehension skills, make good progress throughout primary school and will excel at SATs in Year 6 and at 11+ Comprehension Tests.
