While I was recently searching the Twinkl website for Reptile resources I came across a new series of reading comprehensions that they have created all about British Wildlife and based on the BBC Springwatch series. All the resources are FREE to download (in order to download a FREE Twinkl Resource you do need to set up a FREE Twinkl account).
The resources are linked to the BBC Springwatch show but I must admit we have actually already used the British Reptile reading comprehension without first watching the show. There are 8 different reading comprehensions (so far we printed British Reptiles and Pond Life). Each comprehension consists of 3 versions – you can choose which one you think is the correct level for your kids. So don’t just download and print as you will duplicate content.
From what we could tell based on the two that we have printed there are only 2 questions under the Wild Academy Challenge section that requires you to have watched the series.
We are planning on watching the BBC Springwatch series (I have taped the first 2). However I do think that these comprehensions are brilliant even if you don’t watch the series as they contain lots of information about British wildlife.
The Twinkl resources which they have created for the BBC Springwatch series are these ones
As I mentioned above all are Free to download however they will only be available to download until the 12 July 2018.
My advice is if you think they are informative resources then download them now so you have a copy.
For more information about the Springwatch series including the Wild challenge have a look here – BBC Springwatch. There is also a very condensed version of the reading comprehension on the BBC website under the Wild Academy worksheets
All Links to Twinkl and reference to resources being FREE are correct at the time of writing the post
