Roald Dahl Home Comprehension Tasks
Good afternoon everyone!
I hope you are all keeping well!
I have discovered a free resource online that allows you to read extracts from two of Roald Dahl's most famous stories- George's Marvellous Medicine and The Witches and then complete comprehension activities linked to what you have read!
You can complete the reading and activities alone or have a go with one of the adults or older children in your house!
The link to the webpage is
The login and password are:
Once you login, click 'Learner Library' which should appear in the centre of the page.
Then, click 'Roald Dahl Pack'
You can then select either stage one: George's Marvellous Medicine or stage two: The Witches.
Once you have clicked either text, you will have three extracts to choose from if you have selected George's Marvellous medicine and two extracts to choose from if you have selected The Witches.
Once you select an extract, you can press a button to have it read to you, or you can read it yourself. To the right of each extract, you can then complete a 'Think Ahead' task, 'Question' task, 'Word Check' task or a 'Summarise' task.
If you're feeling brave, once you have completed all tasks and have read all extracts, you can then complete the 'Test Yourself' section.
Good luck and keep reading!!
