Year 4 Reading Comprehension Answers

War Boy

  1. The narrator was in his bedroom which he shared with his mother.
  2. The bomb exploded up the chimney.
  3. The author added this information to show that the boy knew about bombs. Or, to let the reader know about the different types of bombs there were and what the bomb did when it landed (or exploded).
  4. If you are in the Home Guard, you were trained to know what to do when there was an attack. For example, Ivan and Pud had made sure each room was stuffed with sandbags. Also, Ivan and Pud were able to act quickly when the incendiary bomb landed in their house.
  5. The dry sand kept sliding off so Ivan must have felt a bit worried as what he was doing didn’t appear to be working.
  6. Yes, I think it was dark outside because Ivan was in his pyjamas and the boy telling the story was in his bed. In paragraph 3, it says ‘the night sky was filled with lights’
  7. The author has started the story with this sentence to give the reader an idea of where and when the story takes place. Also, It gives the reader a sense that the boy has been startled or surprised.
  8. The rooms in the house were stuffed with sandbags; The sky was filled with search lights, anti aircraft fire and a bombers’ moon; They had a dug out across the road; The church exploded.
  9. I think the narrator was a child as he speaks about his bed being in the same room as his mother’s bed; His mother grabbing him to get out of the house; His brothers taking charge to put out the fire that the bomb had created.

Celebrating Success

Thank you to those that have been sharing the work you have been doing at home. It has been really great to hear from you all.

Koray has been finding all about Mauritius. As well as a smoothie recipe he researched the country and made an information page.


Haasya practised her coding skills and created an animated name.

There were a few more Scratch projects that I was really interested in.

Scratch Project – Making a game

I have been practising my coding skills by following a tutorial to make a game. I made some changes to the sprites to make it a bit more fun.

Let’s see what you can come up with. Follow the instructions below and create your own game.

I’m going to try and make my game harder by having 2 balls bouncing around at once! How can you make it more challenging?

Here is the game I made.
