It's fifty years since one of music's most iconic albums was released.
On June 1st 1967, Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was released by the Beatles. This remains one of the best selling and famous albums, created by the most successful and talented band in history.
In this comprehension, your students will learn about the band as well as the album.
Students will use inference and deduction skills as well as fact retrieval.
Questions and answers are provided, with an indication of how many marks are on offer at the end of each question. This is particularly helpful for children preparing for reading tests and exams, encouraging them to give fuller answers where required.
As with all of my reading exercises, I try to write content that is interesting and engaging - stories that may not be on the curriculum, but are important for children to know.
I hope you enjoy this activity on this album that is such an important part of our musical culture.
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.
