UKS2 Vincent van Gogh Reading Comprehension Activity

A reading comprehension activity with comprehension and grammar questions about the life of famous Dutch artist, Vincent van Gogh. The text looks at his life and work, and concludes with comprehension and grammar questions. It also contains an extension activity for fast-finishing students. It is aimed at students between the ages of 9 and 13.

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

The activity requires NO PREP; it 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.
