This pronouns 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 ‘pronouns’. 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.
This worksheet can also be used to cover pronouns in Year 5.
What is a pronoun?
Pronouns are often used in place of a noun that has already been mentioned in a text, to avoid repetition.
The magical sky ship flew through the clouds. It was on a special mission.
Captain Amula was the captain and it was her job to keep the ship safe.
