KS2 – SATs-Style Comprehension: Refugee Boy Extract

This is a KS2 SATs-Style comprehension activity using an extract from the incredible novel Refugee Boy by Benjamin Zephaniah.

There are 14 questions testing a range of KS2 reading skills based on the national curriculum reading content domains, and these are laid out in a style similar to what the children will face when completing their end-of-KS2 SATs, which are returning for 2022!

There is also a complete mark scheme, written by a primary and secondary literacy expert, included to support you with marking and assessment!

The task has been designed for completion over 30 minutes, reflecting the length of the extract involved and supporting children to build up their confidence and pace over the course of the year. This would work as an excellent challenge for children aiming for Greater Depth!
