Y2 Grammar Punctuation and Spelling

What are Nouns? Lesson

This What are Nouns? lesson covers the prior learning of nouns, before moving onto the main skill of identifying nouns by type.

The lesson starts with a prior learning activity to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning with engaging reasoning and application tasks.

National Curriculum Objective
English Year 2: (2G3.2) Learn how to use expanded noun phrases to describe and specify [for example, the blue butterfly, plain flour, the man in the moon]
