KS1/LKS2 SATS style Reading Comprehension Booklets, Bundle 2

KS1/LKS2 SATS style Reading Comprehension Booklets, Bundle 2

This is the second of our bundles of SATs style Reading Comprehension booklets, designed to provide a greater level of challenge in line with New Curriculum requirements. This super bundle of four KS1 reading comprehension booklets includes additional inference and deduction questions as well as a wider range of vocabulary. They offer both fiction and non-fiction texts and is based around a variety of topics. Although designed for Year 2 children, the booklets have also been successfully used with Year 3 children and so should serve as a highly useful resource for both year groups. Purchased individually, the booklets would cost £8.00 for 4 booklets but I am offering a £2.00 discount with this bundle of 4.
