Reading Comprehension - Is it alive, dead or has never been alive? - Year 2

This resource is a non-fiction comprehension activity for year 2, based on the KS1 SATs reading paper.

The booklet explains how we know if something is alive, has once been alive or has never been alive. Perfect for cross-curricular learning, covering the literacy and science curriculum at the same time.

There are 3 differentiated levels, which include a range of ‘what,’ ‘how,’ ‘which’ 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.
