Task 1 - Comprehension The Sun. 

This comprehension is on The Sun and will help you when we move onto our new science topic on The Earth, Sun and Moon. There are three different levels of difficulty and you can choose the level that suits you best. 1 star is easier and 3 stars is the most difficult. The stars can be found on the bottom left of each page. You can answer the questions in your exercise book or print them off. There are also answers at the back but please wait until you have answered the questions before looking at them. 

Task 2 - First News Reading Task. 

For something different, read the First News newspaper and answer the questions to complete the crosswords. Choose your level: Water is level 1 and easier, Discovery is level 2 and Science is level 3. There is also a quiz for you to do. If you finish one quickly try the next level, can anyone complete all 3? You can print out the sheets or write your answers in a list in your exercise book.
