These bright, appealing grammar worksheets are a great help for practising and revising the use of commands in Year 2. There are three worksheets in total, covering the following five sections – ‘understand’, ‘challenge’, ‘test’, ‘explain’ and ‘apply’.
Students suggest commands that can follow three different sentences.
‘You have just been given a robot. Write down three commands you might give to it.’
Students identify sentences that can be described as commands, and suggest commands they might hear in a range of different scenarios.
‘Using your own words, explain how a command is different from other sentences.’
‘Your new robot does not know how to make a sandwich. Give him commands so that he is able to make your favourite sandwich for you.’
