UKS2 Literacy - Macbeth Reading Comprehension Activity

This is a free example of one of our reading comprehension activities. Activity books or other individual comprehensions are available if you find this useful. The activity is one of ten reading comprehension activities in our Non-Fiction Reading Comprehension Book.

This is a reading comprehension activity about Macbeth. This resource is ideal for a homework activity, a reading group activity, guided reading, exam/test preparation etc.

The activity 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.
