This KS2 ellipsis worksheet has been designed to help children revisit and recall a key grammatical concept from the National Curriculum programme of study for Year 6.

The session provides a motivating and memorable image to stimulate discussion, before introducing the grammar element, which is ‘ellipsis’. Children have time to practise using this feature, before undertaking a short writing task to apply what they have learnt in the context of creative writing.

Ellipsis meaning

Ellipsis is where a word or phrase can be left out of speech or writing because it is expected and predictable, so it isn’t needed to carry meaning.

Ellipsis examples

Frankie waved to Ivana and she watched her drive away.

She did it because she wanted to do it.
