Teachers can print off the specific text and questions they require, and use the resulting worksheet to provide a quick burst of comprehension practice – ideal for morning work, short reading sessions or for sparking interest in a particular classic text.

Each challenge includes a brief 300- to 400-word extract from a classic text, alongside a range of reading-related questions that focus on the key skills of inference, information retrieval and vocabulary use.
