These bright, appealing SPaG worksheets are a great help for practising and revising the use of statements in Year 2. There are three worksheets in total, covering the following five sections – ‘understand’, ‘challenge’, ‘test’, ‘explain’ and ‘apply’.
Students respond to three questions by writing a short statement for each one.
‘Write 3 statements about your school.’
Students pick out the statements from a list of several sentences and underline the statements contained within three short passages.
‘Using your own words, explain what a statement is.’
‘What do you like to do for fun? Tell a friend all about your favourite hobby. Underline all of the statements you have included.’
What is a statement?
A clearly expressed fact, observation or preference in speech or writing.
- I like spaghetti.
- I am going outside.
- I am older than you.
- She doesn’t look happy.
