UKS2 Literacy - Macbeth Reading Comprehension Activity

This is a reading comprehension activity about Macbeth. This resource is ideal for a homework activity, a reading group activity, guided reading, exam/test preparation etc.

The activity 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.

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.
