  • Hi I used this with my year 4 class today but it became clear that they would have to complete all three levels in order to answer the questions correctly. There is a question on the 3 star comprehension which can only be answered if you have read the one star comprehension text, which seems a bit odd?

  • Would it be possible to have the text all together and the questions underneath? This seems very simple for high ability KS2.
