Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

 

In Year 2 you will have learnt a lot of different things in your English and Literacy lessons.

 

In this worksheet you can go over most of the objectives for grammar, punctuation and spelling, giving you the opportunity to check what you have learnt and what you still need to practise. The questions are more challenging than in the first revision worksheet, so it is a good idea to complete that one before you try this one.

When we write sentences we need to remember to punctuate them. All sentences begin with a capital letter, and they end with a full stop, a question mark or an exclamation mark.

 

 

Write out the following sentence in the answer box, punctuating it correctly.

 

do you know the way to the post office

When we speak, we often run words together, saying things like 'I didn't go', rather than 'I did not go'.

We use an apostrophe in these words to show where a letter has been missed out.

 

 

Write the missing word in the answer box.

 

have not          haven't

can not            can't

Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings and are often spelt differently. It is easy to get confused between the homophones there, their and they're.

 

We use there to describe a place or when we say 'there is' and 'there are'.

I went to the swimming pool and accidently left my costume there.

There are 26 letters in the alphabet.

 

Their means 'belonging to them'.

My kittens are always chasing their tails.

We use the present tense to talk and write about things that are happening now.

Molly goes swimming every week.

Liam is wearing his new jacket.

 

We use the past tense to talk and write about things that have already happened.

This means that we stick to the tense we have chosen and do not keep swapping between the present and the past tenses.

 

Look at the sentences below.

If the person is shouting, then an exclamation mark can be used. A question mark is not correct because the sentence is not asking a question. Commas and apostrophes are never used to mark the end of a sentence.
