Tier 2 words are ones which children might encounter in text but are less likely to use in everyday conversation. As these words are often unfamiliar to children, they can sometimes act as a barrier to reading. We have chosen 48 Tier 2 words for this Year 5 pack.
The Tier 2 words in this pack can be used by children to add more adventurous or formal vocabulary to their writing. The worksheets can also be used as a reading comprehension activity.
This resource pack includes
The cards are arranged four to a sheet; they can be printed out and cut up so that they can be shared amongst pupils in a group. Also included are larger versions that can be used for display. Children could discuss the meaning of these phrases out of context.

This sheet presents the Tier 2 words with their definitions.
Children can read the Tier 2 words in context and then try to infer their meaning.
