And just like that, it’s September again. One of the busiest times of the school year for teachers, parents and students alike, we are all wrapped up in the back to school rush.

From timetables to seating plans, classroom displays to lesson plans - every teacher across the country is working hard to prepare for the term ahead.

To help ease the pressure for you during this busy time, our education team have created a ‘back to school’ pack for you. This reading comprehension activity includes everything you need to complete a 45 minute lesson.

Example lesson plan

  1. Read the passage out loud (10 minutes)

  2. Go through any new vocabulary (15 minutes)

  3. Answer the multiple choice questions (20 minutes)

The benefits of using reading activities in the classroom are significant. They ensure students develop a strong vocabulary, practise key comprehension skills and become active and confident readers. A great way to connect with students and start fun and easy class discussions after a long summer break.
