UKS2 Literacy - Greatest Tennis Players Bundle of Reading Comprehensions

This is a bundle of three reading comprehension activities, or informational text activities, about three of the greatest tennis players of all time - Serena Williams, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

The informational texts look into the players lives, careers and achievements, and conclude with comprehension and grammar questions. They also contain extension activities for fast-finishing students. They are aimed at students between the ages of 9-13.

Each resource is ideal for a homework activity, a reading group activity, guided reading, exam/test preparation etc.

Each activity requires NO PREP; they have 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 pages of the documents.

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
