A close reading activity about the life of Father Christmas or Santa Claus. The informational text follows his life, appearance and Christmas deliveries. The reading comprehension resource is perfect for a fun Christmas activity for students in Year 3 or Year 4.
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
