Product Description
These comprehensions are taken from real newspaper reports of major news events that made the world stop in its tracks. These are important stories for your children to understand, as they play a significant part in recent world history.

The comprehensions focus on:

The sinking of the Titanic
9/11
The Asian tsunami

and

The assassination of JFK

There are a variety of questions styles, testing skills in retrieval, inference and deduction. Answers are provided, and children are given an indication of marks on offer so this is good preparation for reading tests and assessments.

As with all of my work, I try to make the subject matter interesting and exciting for the children to engage with. As these stories may be familiar, I have made some of the questions particularly challenging, focussing on the parts of the story that your cohort won't know about.

I have compiled a number of other comprehensions that you may be interested in. I’m sure your students would love to find out about these exciting stories.

The Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot
Mysteries of the World
World War One
Christmas Reading Comprehensions
The Royal Family

The above titles are also all featured in my Mega Comprehension bundle:
