Activity Sheets KS2 & KS3

Available every Friday during term time, Activity Sheets are printable comprehensions, quizzes, vocabulary puzzles and debates based on the week’s news stories in First News.

Created in three reading levels for KS2 to KS3, Activity Sheets deliver fully prepared lesson content every week, with the flexibility to assign the most suitable level for whole classes or groups of pupils, supporting you in developing children’s skills in the most applicable way to achieve the best results.

Like the iHub, they encourage children to delve into the detail of news stories and develop their skills around evaluating information and forming reasoned responses.

“I’ve seen so many positives from using the newspaper and reading activities during our Guided Reading sessions, particularly with reluctant readers who enjoyed being able to be in control of what, and where, they started reading the newspaper from.

The stories became great conversation starters and really supported the children in developing their justification and opinion-giving skills”

-Teacher and Reading Leader, Aldersbrook Primary School, London
