Year 2 Reading Comprehension - William Caxton (Inventor)

This resource is a non-fiction comprehension activity for year 2. It is based on the KS1 SATs reading paper and includes 3 differentiated levels. The booklet is all about William Caxton, who brought the printing press to England and is a suggested figure in the KS1 history curriculum. Perfect for cross-curricular English and History learning. There are a range of 'what,' 'who,' 'when,' 'where' and 'why' questions, some multiple choice tick questions and some that require more detailed answers. The activity is also laid out in a similar way to the SATs booklets, with four pages of pictures and short written extracts to read and 2-3 questions per page. PDF file format and editable Microsoft word format included in the price.
