UKS2 History - World War II Collection Reading Comprehension Book

This book is designed to help students learn about World War 2 whilst working on their comprehension skills independently, and adding to their grammar knowledge and creative writing. Activities are aimed at students between the ages of 9-13.

Each of our Activity Books comes with 10 reading comprehension activities. 36 pages of activities in total!

Each worksheet 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.

This activity is part of a collection of activities listed below:
1 – The Outbreak of War in Europe
2 – World War II (Overview)
3 – Dunkirk and The Battle of Britain
4 – The Blitz
5 – The Eastern Front
6 – The Attack on Pearl Harbour
7 – The Battle of Midway
8 – The Holocaust
9 – The Surrender of the Axis Powers in Europe
10 – The Atomic Bombs and Japan’s Surrender

All ten are available in the World War II Reading Comprehension Activity Book for just £4.00.

Answers, for teacher use, are on the final pages of the document.
