LKS2 History - Winston Churchill Reading Comprehension Activity

A close reading activity about the life of the Prime Minister of Great Britain during World War II, Winston Churchill. The informational text looks into his family life, life before World War 2, his work during the war, and his death and legacy afterwards. The reading comprehension resource is perfect for students in Year 3 or Year 4 who are learning about World War 2 or influential 20th Century people.

The activity requires NO PREP and has a body of text that students need to read through thoroughly; then they can use the text to find the comprehension and grammar answers. All texts then have an extension activity for those fast finishers.
Answers, for teacher use, are on the final page of the document.

Time allowance ( one hour)
5 minutes - read through the text individually.
40 minutes - answer questions using the text as guidance (including extension activity)
15 minutes - Teacher and students go through the text and answers

We also specialize in play scripts, we have a William Shakespeare collection with Richard III, Macbeth and Hamlet. And a good selection of Christmas play scripts including Elf, The Santa Clause and A Christmas Carol.
