The children have looked over this text a number of times. We have encouraged the children to read, read again, have a break, read again, so in the end the children will have read this text a number of times and will be familiar with the text. At this point the children will not have answered the questions.
When they have read it a number of times and they are confident that they know what the text is about then they can attempt to answer the questions.
You may do this already, however if you don’t and will try this method out let us know how it goes.
Let us know if this helps!
