Description

A reading comprehension based on a newspaper article about the conflict between the Ancient Romans and the first Christians. The article is inspired by the story 'Fatal Fire' by Terry Deary.  Children work with a partner to analyse the article, considering the vocabulary, how it makes them feel, and any questions it raises. They then answer a set of test-style comprehension questions.

Includes an answer sheet. Suitable for KS2.
