Y2 Grammar Punctuation and Spelling

Recognising and Using Exclamations Lesson

This Recognising and Using Exclamations lesson covers the prior learning of recognising the features of a question, before moving onto the main skill of recognising and using exclamations.

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.
