Y2 Grammar Punctuation and Spelling

Compound Nouns Lesson

This Compound Noun lesson covers the prior learning of recognising and using common nouns and proper nouns, before moving onto the main skill of understanding compound nouns.

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. 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 (2G6.3) Formation of nouns using suffixes such as –ness, –er and by compounding [for example, whiteboard, superman]

English Year 2 (2G6.3) Formation of adjectives using suffixes such as –ful, –less (A fuller list of suffixes can be found in the year 2 spelling section in English Appendix 1)
