Year 1 Comprehensions - Remembrance Day

This resource contains 4 comprehension activities with answers suitable for using with year 1.
They each contain a short piece of text (about 5 sentences) with words that can be sounded out. There are three trickier words which have pictures to help children work out what they say.
The text is followed by 5 simple questions.

The theme in this pack is ‘Remembrance Day.’ There are four different comprehensions:

  • What is Remembrance Day?
  • The First Remembrance Day
  • Why do we wear poppies?
  • The History of the Poppy

There is also a powerpoint included in the pack containing a slide for each text so that you can go through the comprehensions before the children complete them. Each slide also contains 3 words that are trickier to sound out, with sound buttons underneath them.
