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 two revision worksheets, so it is a good idea to complete those before you try this one.

When we write, we need to punctuate our sentences carefully to make them easy to read and understand. Look at the following writing.

 

the dogs chased after the postman they bit a hole out of his trousers

 

It is actually two separate sentences, but the writer has forgotten to add any punctuation. Write the sentences out again in the answer box, adding the correct punctuation.

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 letters have been missed out.

 

Write the words 'will not' as one word, using an apostrophe.

Nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are all different types of words.

 

Read the sentence below and then match the words to their word class.

Sam held the little kitten in his arms. It was purring gently.

Column A

Column B

kitten
adverb
held
adjective
little
noun
gently

Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings and are often spelt differently. The words where, wear and we're sound almost the same as each other, and are called near-homophones.

 

Do you know where the railway station is?

I am going to wear my new trainers tomorrow.

I hope we're going to Wales on holiday. I love it there.

 

 

Choose where, wear or we're to complete the following sentence. Write the correct word in the answer box.

 

If our class wins the behaviour award __________ going to get extra playtime.

We use the present tense to talk and write about things that are happening now and the past tense for things that have already happened.

 

Choose the correct word to complete each of the sentences below.

 iswas
Jason hated peas when he __________ little.
Kayla loves ice cream. Her favourite flavour __________ chocolate.
My granddad __________ a train driver before he retired.

A suffix is a letter or group of letters added to the end of a word to make a new word. Look at the sentences below.

 

Jessie is tall, but Josh is taller and Katie is the tallest.

Jessie is happy, but Josh is happier and Katie is the happiest.

 

The suffixes -er and -est have been added to the adjectives tall and happy to compare the three children. Did you notice that the y at the end of happy changed to i before the suffix was added?

 

 

Now add the suffixes -er and -est to the adjective angry and write out the whole sentence in the answer box.

 

Jessie is angry, but Josh is __________ and Katie is the __________.

Statements, questions, commands and exclamations are all different types of sentences.

 

A statement is a sentence that gives information.

It is raining today.

 

A question is a sentence that needs an answer. It ends with a question mark.

How old are you?

 

A command is a sentence that tells somebody what to do.

Mix the butter, flour and eggs together with a wooden spoon.

 

An exclamation is not always a complete sentence. It may be just one or two words showing anger, surprise or excitement.

What horrible weather!

 

 

What type of sentences are the examples below?

 statementquestioncommandexclamation
Please close the door when you leave.
What a lovely dress!
How long is it until home time?
Penguins are found in Antarctica.

The word kite is a noun.

 

If we add more information to the noun it becomes a noun phrase.

Joe owns a red, yellow and blue kite with a long tail.

 

The sentence below also contains a noun phrase.

Amir and Kieran have shiny new red bicycles.

 

Write the noun phrase (not the whole sentence) in the answer box.

Look at this list of words.

funnel

table

quarrel

apple

 

They all end in the same sound, but in two of the words it is spelt -el and in the other two it is spelt -le.

In most cases, -le is the correct spelling, but after m, n, r, s, v and w we use -el.

 

Look at the list of words and decide if they have been spelt correctly or not.

 The spelling is correct.The spelling is not correct.
squirrel
towle
bottle
middel
tunnel
littel

Look at the sentences below.

 

Jamie was very angry.

Jamie shouted angrily at Sarah.

 

In the second sentence, the adjective angry has been turned into the adverb angrily. The y has been changed to i and the the letters -ly have been added.

 

 

Now change the adjective happy into an adverb to complete the sentence below. Write the word in the answer box.

 

Philip played __________ on his new bike all afternoon.

Read these two sentences.

 

Kayla was upset. She had lost her bracelet.

 

They can be joined together using one of the words in the list below. Choose one of the words and rewrite the new sentence in the answer box.

  • so
  • because
  • but
  • when

There are many rules to help us spell words, but some words don't follow the rules and simply have to be learnt.

 

Listen to the word by clicking on the sound button and then write it in the answer box.

When we write sentences we need to remember to punctuate them. All sentences begin with a capital letter, but they also need a punctuation mark at the end.

 

Read the two sentences below and decide which punctuation marks should be used instead of the *.

 

where are you hiding* come here at once*

 

Write both sentences out again in the answer box with the correct punctuation.

We can write sentences in the present tense to show that things are happening now, or in the past tense to show that they have already happened.

 

The sentences below are in the present tense. Change them into the past tense and write them out again in the answer box. There are four verbs to change into the past tense.

 

Sam falls over on the ice and cuts his knee. He cries a bit then goes home.

We use an apostrophe to show that something belongs to somebody.

Mina's book is on the shelf.

 

 

Look at the following sentence and write it out again, adding an apostrophe in the correct place.

 

The mans hat blew off in the wind.

Look at the following pairs of words.

donkey     donkeys

puppy       puppies

valley       valleys

baby         babies

 

If the word ends in -ey it simply adds -s in the plural, rather than changing to -ies.

 

Write the correct plural forms of the words in the boxes below.

 Plural form
monkey
family

  • Question 1

When we write, we need to punctuate our sentences carefully to make them easy to read and understand. Look at the following writing.

 

the dogs chased after the postman they bit a hole out of his trousers

 

It is actually two separate sentences, but the writer has forgotten to add any punctuation. Write the sentences out again in the answer box, adding the correct punctuation.

CORRECT ANSWER
The dogs chased after the postman. They bit a hole out of his trousers.
The dogs chased after the postman. They bit a hole out of his trousers!
EDDIE SAYS
A full stop is needed after the word 'postman', as this is the end of the first sentence. The second sentence could end with an exclamation mark instead of a full stop as it sounds quite funny.
  • Question 2

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 letters have been missed out.

 

Write the words 'will not' as one word, using an apostrophe.

CORRECT ANSWER
won't
EDDIE SAYS
You just have to learn this one because it doesn't follow the usual rules.
  • Question 3

Nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are all different types of words.

 

Read the sentence below and then match the words to their word class.

Sam held the little kitten in his arms. It was purring gently.

CORRECT ANSWER

Column A

Column B

kitten
noun
held
verb
little
adjective
gently
adverb
EDDIE SAYS
Nouns are the names of people and things. Verbs are action words. Adjectives describe nouns and adverbs describe how actions are carried out.
  • Question 4

Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings and are often spelt differently. The words where, wear and we're sound almost the same as each other, and are called near-homophones.

 

Do you know where the railway station is?

I am going to wear my new trainers tomorrow.

I hope we're going to Wales on holiday. I love it there.

 

 

Choose where, wear or we're to complete the following sentence. Write the correct word in the answer box.

 

If our class wins the behaviour award __________ going to get extra playtime.

CORRECT ANSWER
we're
EDDIE SAYS
We're is short for 'we are'. The other two words don't make sense in this sentence.
  • Question 5

We use the present tense to talk and write about things that are happening now and the past tense for things that have already happened.

 

Choose the correct word to complete each of the sentences below.

CORRECT ANSWER
 iswas
Jason hated peas when he __________ little.
Kayla loves ice cream. Her favourite flavour __________ chocolate.
My granddad __________ a train driver before he retired.
EDDIE SAYS
It is important to choose the correct tense so that your sentences make sense. The first and third sentences are in the past tense but the second one is in the present tense.
  • Question 6

A suffix is a letter or group of letters added to the end of a word to make a new word. Look at the sentences below.

 

Jessie is tall, but Josh is taller and Katie is the tallest.

Jessie is happy, but Josh is happier and Katie is the happiest.

 

The suffixes -er and -est have been added to the adjectives tall and happy to compare the three children. Did you notice that the y at the end of happy changed to i before the suffix was added?

 

 

Now add the suffixes -er and -est to the adjective angry and write out the whole sentence in the answer box.

 

Jessie is angry, but Josh is __________ and Katie is the __________.

CORRECT ANSWER
Jessie is angry, but Josh is angrier and Katie is the angriest.
EDDIE SAYS
We need to change the y to i before we add -er and -est.
  • Question 7

Statements, questions, commands and exclamations are all different types of sentences.

 

A statement is a sentence that gives information.

It is raining today.

 

A question is a sentence that needs an answer. It ends with a question mark.

How old are you?

 

A command is a sentence that tells somebody what to do.

Mix the butter, flour and eggs together with a wooden spoon.

 

An exclamation is not always a complete sentence. It may be just one or two words showing anger, surprise or excitement.

What horrible weather!

 

 

What type of sentences are the examples below?

CORRECT ANSWER
 statementquestioncommandexclamation
Please close the door when you leave.
What a lovely dress!
How long is it until home time?
Penguins are found in Antarctica.
EDDIE SAYS
The first example looks a bit like a question because of the word 'please', but it is actually a command. The person speaking wants someone to do something; they are not asking for information. If it was a question it would have had a question mark at the end.
  • Question 8

The word kite is a noun.

 

If we add more information to the noun it becomes a noun phrase.

Joe owns a red, yellow and blue kite with a long tail.

 

The sentence below also contains a noun phrase.

Amir and Kieran have shiny new red bicycles.

 

Write the noun phrase (not the whole sentence) in the answer box.

CORRECT ANSWER
shiny new red bicycles
EDDIE SAYS
The noun is 'bicycles'. Adding the adjectives 'shiny new red' turns it into a noun phrase.
  • Question 9

Look at this list of words.

funnel

table

quarrel

apple

 

They all end in the same sound, but in two of the words it is spelt -el and in the other two it is spelt -le.

In most cases, -le is the correct spelling, but after m, n, r, s, v and w we use -el.

 

Look at the list of words and decide if they have been spelt correctly or not.

CORRECT ANSWER
 The spelling is correct.The spelling is not correct.
squirrel
towle
bottle
middel
tunnel
littel
EDDIE SAYS
'Bottle', 'middle' and 'little' end with -le, which is the usual spelling. 'Squirrel', 'towel' and 'tunnel' end in -el because the ending comes after r, w or n.
  • Question 10

Look at the sentences below.

 

Jamie was very angry.

Jamie shouted angrily at Sarah.

 

In the second sentence, the adjective angry has been turned into the adverb angrily. The y has been changed to i and the the letters -ly have been added.

 

 

Now change the adjective happy into an adverb to complete the sentence below. Write the word in the answer box.

 

Philip played __________ on his new bike all afternoon.

CORRECT ANSWER
happily
EDDIE SAYS
The y needs to be changed to i before the -ly ending is added.
  • Question 11

Read these two sentences.

 

Kayla was upset. She had lost her bracelet.

 

They can be joined together using one of the words in the list below. Choose one of the words and rewrite the new sentence in the answer box.

  • so
  • because
  • but
  • when
CORRECT ANSWER
Kayla was upset because she had lost her bracelet.
Kayla was upset when she had lost her bracelet.
EDDIE SAYS
The best choice is 'because', as it gives the reason why Kayla was upset. You could say that Kayla was upset when she lost her bracelet, but 'so' and 'but' do not make sense here.
  • Question 12

There are many rules to help us spell words, but some words don't follow the rules and simply have to be learnt.

 

Listen to the word by clicking on the sound button and then write it in the answer box.

CORRECT ANSWER
beautiful
EDDIE SAYS
This is a very tricky word to spell but it is worth learning, as we use it a lot.
  • Question 13

When we write sentences we need to remember to punctuate them. All sentences begin with a capital letter, but they also need a punctuation mark at the end.

 

Read the two sentences below and decide which punctuation marks should be used instead of the *.

 

where are you hiding* come here at once*

 

Write both sentences out again in the answer box with the correct punctuation.

CORRECT ANSWER
Where are you hiding? Come here at once!
Where are you hiding? Come here at once.
EDDIE SAYS
Both sentences need to begin with a capital letter. The first sentence is a question so it needs to end with a question mark. The second sentence is probably being shouted, so an exclamation mark is needed, but a full stop would also be correct.
  • Question 14

We can write sentences in the present tense to show that things are happening now, or in the past tense to show that they have already happened.

 

The sentences below are in the present tense. Change them into the past tense and write them out again in the answer box. There are four verbs to change into the past tense.

 

Sam falls over on the ice and cuts his knee. He cries a bit then goes home.

CORRECT ANSWER
Sam fell over on the ice and cut his knee. He cried a bit then went home.
EDDIE SAYS
The verbs are falls/fell, cuts/cut, cries/cried and goes/went.
  • Question 15

We use an apostrophe to show that something belongs to somebody.

Mina's book is on the shelf.

 

 

Look at the following sentence and write it out again, adding an apostrophe in the correct place.

 

The mans hat blew off in the wind.

CORRECT ANSWER
The man's hat blew off in the wind.
EDDIE SAYS
The apostrophe goes between the n and s to show that the hat belongs to the man.
  • Question 16

Look at the following pairs of words.

donkey     donkeys

puppy       puppies

valley       valleys

baby         babies

 

If the word ends in -ey it simply adds -s in the plural, rather than changing to -ies.

 

Write the correct plural forms of the words in the boxes below.

CORRECT ANSWER
 Plural form
monkey
family
bunny
chimney
EDDIE SAYS
'Monkey' and 'chimney' end in -ey, so we just need to add s.
  • Question 17

Nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are all different types of words. Read the sentence below and decide how many nouns it contains.

 

The shy panda was munching bamboo and staring at the visitors who were looking through the bars of the cage.

CORRECT ANSWER
5
EDDIE SAYS
There are five nouns in the sentence: 'panda', 'bamboo', 'visitors', 'bars' and 'cage'.
  • Question 18

The apostrophe is a punctuation mark. Tick the two main reasons that we use apostrophes.

CORRECT ANSWER
to show that letters have been missed out of a word
to show that something belongs to somebody
EDDIE SAYS
Apostrophes are used to show that letters have been missed out of a word, for example: didn't. They are also used to show that something belongs to somebody, for example: Mary's book.
