Comprehension Questions

This week, for comprehension you are going to listen to an audio story. I want to see how well you understand and remember stories you have listened to. Listening is a very important skill and it is important to be able to concentrate and listen for a long time. 


For this activity, I want you to sit in a comfy chair or lay down on the floor with a pillow or cushion to rest your head. You might want to close your eyes to help you visualise the story (but you don't have to). You might also want to listen to the story through headphones instead of your device's speaker.





Task: Listen to the audio story then answer the comprehension questions using full sentences.

1. What is the name of the captain of the ship The Golden Plunder?

2. Use three adjectives to describe The Golden Plunder.

3. Where is the treasure the pirates are looking for located?

4. This story is a narrative. What is the 'dilemma' in this narrative?

5. Who was your favourite character in this story and why?

6. What was the best part about this story and this activity?

7. Is there anything you did not like?

8. Would you like to hear more audio stories like this?
