Reading Comprehension Packs

Our printable Easy Classics comprehension packs are designed to support teachers in the classroom and parents with home learning to bring the magic of classic literature to a younger generation. Closely aligned with the UK National Curriculum and based on our titles levelled for guided reading worldwide, these resources help children progress with their reading comprehension and literary skills.

The Student Packs contain a range of literacy exercises, including vocabulary lists with definitions, plot sequencing, reading comprehension questions, read and recall comic-strip drawing and first-person diary writing.

The Answer Sheets contain solutions to each activity along with discussion ideas to encourage further conversations.
