Introduction to Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work Document

The purpose of the Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work document is to provide teachers with support
and information for planning, creating and delivering their lessons throughout the year. The
Scheme of Work contains the following sections:

1. Overview of Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work

This section will explain to teachers how the Scheme of Work is organised and provides detail on
the two types of lesson in the Scheme of Work: textbook-based lessons and non-textbook-based
lessons.

2. Glossary of terms in the Primary Year 2 curriculum framework

In order to assist teachers in understanding the Content and Learning Standards which will appear
in each lesson, a number of these Standards have been explained in more detail.

3. Differentiation strategies for Primary Year 2

This section provides teachers with a number of suggested differentiation strategies which
teachers may wish to use within their classes. There are a total of seven strategies and each
lesson will have a recommendation for teachers as to which strategies could be used within that
particular lesson.

4. Formative Assessment

This section provides a short overview of formative assessment and suggests 5 possible ways
teachers can assess their pupils.

5. Suggested Pre-Lesson Tasks

Teachers have been provided with a selection of tasks which can be used at the start of each of
the non-textbook-based lessons. There are a total of 12 tasks and details in how each task can be
used are provided.

6. Suggested Post-Lesson Tasks

As with the above Pre-Lesson tasks, teachers have also been provided with 12 tasks that can be
used at the end of each non-textbook-based lesson.

7. Scheme of Work (Lessons 1 160)

This section provides teachers with information for both the textbook-based lessons and the non-
textbook-based lessons. For the textbook-based lessons, teachers will need to refer to the
accompanying Teachers Book. For the non-textbook-based lessons, teachers will be required to
develop their own lesson plans and materials. However, possible activities have been suggested
for some of these non-textbook-based lessons which teachers may choose to develop.

Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work
1. Overview of the Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work

1. What is the Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work, and how can it help teachers?

The Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work gives teachers an overview of Content and Learning
Standards, lesson content and materials for their lessons with Primary Year 2 pupils. They can
use the Scheme of Work to help with their daily, weekly and longer-term lesson planning.

2. How is the Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work organised?

The Scheme of Work provides outlines and suggestions for lessons which focus on listening,
speaking, reading, writing or Language Arts over the whole school year.

It links the lessons to:

themes and cross-curricular elements in the Primary Year 2 national curriculum


the four lesson cycle of skills lessons (listening, speaking, reading and writing) and a
Language Arts lesson outlined in the Year 2 national curriculum
achievement targets from the curriculum framework
suggested materials.

In addition, it provides suggestions on pre-lesson, lesson development and post-lesson content.


It also suggests ways of differentiating learning tasks to help pupils at different levels of
language understanding and use.

3. How are content and skills organised in Primary Year 2?

Primary Year 2 starts with a getting-to-know you lesson, which reviews learning from Year 1.
From Lesson 2 onwards, Primary Year 2 is organised into textbook-based lessons (using the
selected textbook - Superminds 1) and non-textbook-based lessons. In the textbook-based
lessons there are four skills lessons and a Language Arts lesson. The sequence of the skills
lessons in the textbook-based lessons is decided by the focus in the Superminds 1 textbook. In
the non-textbook-based lessons, the skills lessons are mostly in the fixed order of Listening,
Reading, Writing and Language Arts, as suggested in KSSR Bahasa Inggeris Tahun 1 and
KSSR Bahasa Inggeris SJK Tahun 1 of 2011.

Within each lesson, pupils do a range of activities and they often use and practise more than
one skill, as is found in everyday language use. For example, a speaking lesson may also
involve listening; or introductory and/or follow-up activities may practise target language through
a different skill, for example, pupils may read words they have practised using in spoken
language. Therefore, every lesson identifies a main and a complementary Content and Learning
Standard, and these often focus on different skills. The first Standard stated in the Scheme of
Work represents the main focus of the lesson, and the complementary Standards are
secondary. Lesson objectives can be derived from both these main and complementary
standards.

The purpose of the non-textbook-based lessons is to recycle and consolidate language and
skills practised in the textbook-based lessons, which should be identified through formative
classroom-based assessment of pupils progress.

The last few lessons (156 160) review language and skills practised over the whole of Primary
Year 2. The final three Language Arts lessons suggest a class performance of some kind which
reviews a chosen area of language learned during the year.

5
Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work
4. Do teachers need to follow the Scheme of Work exactly?

Teachers need to keep to the given content and learning standards for lessons. This is because
content and learning standards are repeated a number of times over Year 2 in order to increase
pupils chances of success in achieving them across all skills and within Language Arts, but
teachers do not have to follow the learning outline and materials suggested. These can be
adapted according to the teaching and learning context, as long as they work towards the
Content and Learning Standards for that particular lesson.

Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work
3. Differentiation strategies for Primary Year 2 pupils

Strategy 1: Differentiate by the task pupils are given


If teachers are using the same task for the whole class, using open-ended tasks such as
brainstorming allows a large number of correct responses. Open-ended tasks (e.g. Tell me the
food words you know, or What will happen next?) allow more proficient pupils to contribute
more unusual words, more complex language, or more original ideas. Sometimes, the teacher
can also give different tasks to more proficient and less proficient groups of pupils according to
their needs and interests: see Strategy 5 for more on this.

Strategy 2: Differentiate by the type and amount of support provided


The teacher can support pupils to understand and use language with:
their own teacher talk (e.g. It begins with B. You read it. Its on the desk.)
with gestures
with visuals (e.g. flashcards on the board to help pupils understand or use vocabulary
with written words (e.g. written words on a worksheet to help pupils with spelling).

Different types and amount of support can be given to less proficient pupils, depending on their
needs, and extra challenge can be provided for more proficient pupils.

Strategy 3: Differentiate by the outcome expected from pupils


The teacher may expect more language from some pupils, and less from others. The main aim
is that every pupil says or writes something, so that they feel successful. Two useful strategies
here are:
compulsory plus optional
remember and share.

i) Compulsory plus optional


Here, the teacher sets pupils targets such as With your partner, write 2 sentences or more,
or In your group, say 3 colours or more. The minimum target (2 sentences, 3 colours) is
compulsory, and everyone needs to achieve this to be successful. But the or more is
optional, and gives a chance for more proficient language pupils to challenge themselves.
Some pupils will stop at the minimum target at first, but with more practice, they will soon
get the idea of going beyond the minimum target.

ii) Remember and share


If pupils are asked to remember and share, they have to tell the teacher words or ideas
they learned in a previous lesson or task (e.g. Look at the classroom objects on my table. In
one minute, Ill cover them Now, share with your group what you remember and then tell
me). Sometimes, less proficient pupils have good memories, and so this task also allows
different pupils to make successful contributions.

Strategy 4: Differentiate by the time pupils are given to complete a task


Some pupils need longer than others to complete tasks, especially when writing is involved.
When it is appropriate, these pupils should be given a little more time to finish, and extra tasks
for pupils who complete the task early should be provided (e.g. Write as many animal words
as you can; Name the things in this picture in the textbook; Talk with your friend in English: You
choose what to talk about). Rewarding fast finishers with something fun to do (such as playing

9
Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work
with toys or drawing a picture) should be avoided, as this will encourage pupils to work quickly,
rather than to work carefully at their own speed. Extra tasks should extend and enrich learning.

Strategy 5: Differentiate by supporting individual learning preferences and needs


When appropriate, teachers can support preferences by letting pupils make choices about what
they do and how they do it. Sometimes, for example, pupils decide for themselves which tasks
they want to do (e.g. the gestures they create for an action song, or a revision game),
depending on the ways they prefer to learn (for example visually, through speaking or listening,
or through movement).

Different pairings and groupings will allow pupils to work in different ways teachers can
sometimes pair up pupils who can help and support each other (e.g. one who can write and
one who cannot yet write well) or who enjoy working together. Sometimes teachers might want
to mix girls and boys, or have single-sex pairs/groups. In some tasks, pupils can be assigned
different roles to do, for example a group manager, writer or artist. Teachers should make sure
to vary pairing and grouping over time.

Teachers can support needs by setting individual tasks and targets for pupils based on teacher
assessment. For example, if a number of pupils are not able to read well yet, a teacher might
decide on a reading target for each child, and provide them with different tasks from those
pupils who can already read. If a few pupils are proficient readers, they could be given extra
tasks. It should be noted that the Schemes of Work for Primary Year 1 and 2 give
recommendations for less proficient readers to be given support during some reading lessons.

Strategy 6: Differentiate by the types of question asked


Closed questions are questions in which the choice of possible answers is limited. They often
involve very short responses. Open questions usually have more possible answers, and longer
responses. Asking closed questions to less proficient pupils (e.g. Which boy is Thunder? Is it a
dog or a cat?) gives them a chance to produce accurate answers, as they are usually easier to
answer than open questions. Asking open questions to more proficient pupils (e.g. What can
Misty do now?) provides extra challenge. As less proficient pupils grow in confidence and
competence, teachers can ask them more open questions. Sometimes there are also good
reasons for asking more proficient pupils easier questions, as this involves them in the lesson
and helps the pace of the lesson.

Strategy 7: Differentiate by the feedback given


Feedback given to pupils should be varied according to their ability to act on the feedback. For
example, if a pupil who is less proficient at writing has tried hard and produces work with a
number of misspellings, feedback can be given on what they did well, and only 2 or 3
misspellings of common or important words highlighted. The pupil should respond to this
feedback because the suggested improvement is achievable for them. If a stronger pupil writes
well and makes 2 misspellings, the teacher can tell them the lines in which the misspellings
are, and ask them to find and correct them. The pupil should be able to respond to the extra
challenge built in to this feedback. The same principle applies to giving feedback on pupils
spoken language.

Pupils with pre-and low-level literacy skills


Some pupils may begin Year 1 with few or no literacy skills, and continue to need to develop
these skills into Year 2. Within the Scheme of Work, reading and writing skills are developed in
different ways and pupils literacy skills will be developed through the activities and lessons
outlined in the Scheme of Work, both in the textbook and non-textbook lessons as the relevant

10
Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work
Content and Learning Standards are given adequate attention for pupils who are developing
literacy skills.

However, pupils with lower literacy proficiency will need extra support. It is recommended that
teachers select relevant material from LINUS, Literasi Bahasa Inggeris (LBI) Pupils Modules 1
and 2 (Second Edition) as supplementary to reading and writing lessons where indicated in the
Scheme of Work in the Differentiation column.

Please note the following Content and Learning Standards which develop these skills:

Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work
4. Formative Assessment

Formative Assessment involves teachers in identifying pupils strengths and weaknesses as


language learners, and in communicating this information clearly to pupils through feedback.

As formative assessment involves clear communication with pupils, effective formative


assessment is therefore also informative. Formative assessment of listening or reading may
involve talking with pupils about different listening and reading strategies they can use. Some
of this discussion may be in L1, as the focus is on learning, not on language performance.
Formative assessment of speaking, may involve highlighting how well a pupil has
communicated a message, as well as some explicit or implicit correction of pronunciation,
vocabulary or grammar. The picture is similar with formative assessment of writing, with
spelling and punctuation replacing pronunciation.

There are five common ways of collecting information in order to find out what pupils have
done well, and what they need to improve:

1. observing pupils in class


2. reading and marking their written work
3. asking pupils about their learning, e.g. what they find easy and difficult, what task types
and topics they enjoy
4. asking pupils to self- or peer assess their work
5. testing pupils.

Formative assessment also involves teachers reflecting on the learning in a lesson in order to
plan upcoming lessons effectively. This is of particular value when considering the non-
textbook-based lessons, where learning from the textbook can be reviewed and/or enriched.

12
Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work
5. Suggested Pre-Lesson tasks

Below can be found 12 lesson tasks which teachers may choose from or adapt for the pre-lesson
section within the Scheme of Work. These pre-lesson tasks are suitable to begin almost any skills-
focused lesson and require minimal materials and preparation. Teachers can, of course, use their
own pre-lesson tasks whenever they think that these would be more suitable for the pupils they
teach. Each pre-lesson task takes about 5-10 minutes of class time.

Note: These tasks are the same for Primary Year 1 and Primary Year 2. The language and
vocabulary focus will be different, however, and some tasks can be modified for slightly older or
more proficient pupils, as is noted in the task description.

PRE-LESSON TASK 1: WORK OUT THE WORDS

AIM: to prepare and give pupils confidence for a listening or reading text

MATERIAL: Board, exercise books and pens

Write anagrams of key topic vocabulary words on the board, e.g.

e l o y l w (for yellow)
r e n e g (for green)

Put pupils into pairs or groups and ask them to work out the words by completing the anagrams.
If pupils find this difficult provide the first letter of each word or provide a picture to help them with
meaning.
When finished, invite pupils to form larger groups to see if they have the same words.
Ask volunteers to say a word then spell it or come up to the board to write it.

PRE-LESSON TASK 2: GUESS THE ANSWER

AIM: to prepare and give pupils confidence for a listening or reading text

MATERIALS: Board

1. Write questions on the board for a listening or reading text that the pupils will answer during the
lesson.
2. Provide two or three possible answers for each question for example, What does Sara like
doing?
a. going swimming
b. watching TV
c. reading books (make sure one is the correct answer!)
3. Ask pupils to guess which one they think is the correct answer.
4. Pupils then listen to or read the text to check their predictions.

13
Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work
PRE-LESSON TASK 3: SEQUENCE THE INFORMATION

AIM: to prepare and give pupils confidence for a listening or reading text

MATERIALS: Board

1. Write a list of events in the listening or reading text in a random order or use pictures to
illustrate them. For example, if the text is a story, list the events in any order (Mohamed goes
camping. He sees a mouse in the tent at night. His mother screams! The mouse runs away)
order.
2. Put pupils in pairs to decide on the order.
3. Invite pupils to compare their ideas in groups.
4. Pupils then listen to or read the text to check their predictions.

PRE-LESSON TASK 4: IDENTIFY THE FLASHCARDS

AIM: to revise topic vocabulary

MATERIALS: Flashcards of relevant topic vocabulary and card to cover up the flashcards

1. Choose some flashcards of important topic vocabulary the pupils will need in the lesson.
2. Place the flashcards face down on a table in front of the class.
3. Take one of the flashcards, making sure the pupils cant see it. Cover it with a piece of card
then slowly begin revealing the flashcard to the class. You could use an overhead projector
and a piece of paper or an interactive whiteboard, if either is available.
4. Pupils try to guess the word as it is revealed. Each time they guess correctly, put the flashcard
on the board. Continue until the pupils have guessed all the words.

PRE-LESSON TASK 5: SIT DOWN, STAND UP

AIM: to revise topic vocabulary

MATERIALS: True and false sentences about the topic

1. Prepare some simple true/false sentences about the topic to check pupils knowledge or to
prepare them for the content of the lesson.
2. Read a sentence out, e.g. if the topic is colours, Ravis pencil case is green, Reginas bag is
blue etc).
3. If it is true, pupils stay sitting at their desks. If it is false, pupils stand up. Invite pupils to correct
any false sentences. You could change the action to suit the topic of the lesson or to review
other vocabulary, especially verbs.
4. If there is time, pairs of pupils can create their own true/false sentences to use with other pairs
or with the whole class.

14
Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work
PRE-LESSON TASK 6: FINGER-WRITING

AIM: to practise spelling of topic vocabulary

MATERIALS: Board

1. Choose some words the pupils will need for the lesson. These should be words the pupils
already know, so are reviewing.
2. Divide pupils into pairs.
3. Tell one pupil in the pair to look at the board, and the other pupil to cover their eyes or put their
head down on the desk so that they cant see the board.
4. Write a topic word on the board, give pupils 5 seconds or so to remember it, and then rub the
word off the board. If you want to review word-spelling, then you could use a picture.
5. Tell pupils who did not see the board to stand with their back to their partner while the partner
writes the word on their back by using their finger.
6. Each pupil works out what word his/her partner is writing.
7. Reverse the roles so that each pupil gets the chance to write.
8. Repeat for other topic words.

NB: When pupils know this activity, they can choose their own words.

PRE-LESSON TASK 7: BEAT THE TEACHER

AIM: to create interest in the lesson and to review and practise spelling of topic vocabulary

MATERIALS: Board

1. Choose a key topic word from the lesson.


2. Write lines to correspond to each letter on the board with a space in between as in the example
below _ _ _ _ _ _ (pencil).
3. Draw a circle/oval on the board. It is a head without the parts (eyes, nose, ears, mouth, hair).
4. Explain that the aim of the game is to guess the word before the face is completed.
5. Tell pupils to put up their hands if they want to guess a letter.
6. If they guess correctly, write the letter into the correct letter space. If they guess incorrectly,
draw one part of the head (e.g. the mouth or the hair). Write the incorrect letter on the side of
the board to remind pupils it has already been used.
7. If pupils guess the word before the face is completed, they have beaten the teacher. If not, the
teacher has won!

NB: You can change the picture you build for this, perhaps using a topic-related picture, as long as
it has a good number of parts (e.g. 6 or 7).

15
Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work
PRE-LESSON TASK 8: PREDICT THE CONTENT

AIM: to help pupils with listening or reading comprehension

MATERIALS: Board and pictures

1. Ask pupils to look at a picture or pictures which accompany a listening or reading text they will
have in the lesson, or tell them the title of the story, song etc.
2. Ask pupils to work in small groups to predict words they might hear/read. Give groups a fixed
time, e.g. 3 minutes.
3. Review their answers and provide correct spelling by writing the words on the board.
4. Ask pupils to read or listen to the text and see if any of their predictions are correct.
5. Check the predictions with the whole class before moving on to the main listening or reading
focus for the lesson.

PRE-LESSON TASK 9: REMEMBER THE WORDS

AIM: to review topic vocabulary and prepare pupils for the lesson

MATERIALS: Flashcards or real/plastic objects, a table and a cloth, or sheet.

1. Choose about 7 or 8 topic words which pupils will need for the lesson.
2. Put flashcards or real objects of these vocabulary items on a table.
3. Ask pupils to work in pairs or small groups and to say the words.
4. Check briefly with the whole class.
5. Place a cloth over all the items on the table.
6. Ask pairs to remember 5 words or more.
7. Elicit answers from the whole class.
8. Uncover the items so that pupils can check their answers.
NB: You can use pictures on the board with sticky tape or magnets, an overhead projector or an
interactive whiteboard for this activity. Real objects (realia) are stimulating when available, though.

16
Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work
PRE-LESSON TASK 10: SAY WHATS MISSING

AIM: to review topic vocabulary and prepare pupils for the lesson

MATERIALS: Flashcards or real/plastic objects, a table and a cloth, or sheet

1. Follow steps 1-5 in Pre-task 9, Remember the Words.


2. Take one or two vocabulary items away.
3. Remove the cloth, keeping the removed items in it.
4. Pupils say which items are missing.
NB: You can use pictures on the board with sticky tape or magnets, an overhead projector or an
interactive whiteboard for this activity. Real objects (realia) are stimulating when available, though.

PRE-LESSON TASK 11: WORDS THAT SOUND THE SAME (PHONICS)

AIM: to practise distinguishing different sounds

MATERIALS: Board (or flashcards)

1. Choose some words that contain the sound(s) you are/have been working on and some
other topic words you would like to review.
2. Write the words in chains of three or four on the board, containing one example of the
phoneme you are focusing on, e.g. for //:
cat : dog : fish : tiger OR cat : dog : monkey : snake (the second example is
more difficult because of the o in monkey, which is not //)
3. Ask pupils to guess which word has an // sound.
4. Say the words (you can say just the word or you could say it in a short sentence) to let
pupils check their answers.
5. Ask pupils to read all the words aloud.

NB: This can be adapted to have chains of rhyming words or as an odd-one-out (where one is
different from the others). Pictures could be used instead of words to check vocabulary production
rather than reading recognition.

PRE-LESSON TASK 12: PASS IT ON

AIM: to review vocabulary or language to prepare for a lesson

MATERIALS: Word or picture cards

1. Review with the whole class the word or picture cards you are using in this task.
2. Have pupils sit in a circle (or two, if you have a very large class).
3. Show pupils the first card, say the word and give it to one pupil. This pupil says the word and
passes it to their neighbour. This pupil says the word and passes it on, and so on.
4. Meanwhile, repeat for the next word, and the next, so that several words are circulating.
5. Increase the pace and challenge by passing some cards in the opposite direction and/or telling
the pupils to be much faster.
6. After the words have all been passed around, you might want to review them again.

NB: You can use this activity to support vocabulary learning or reading. You could use short
sentences for more proficient groups of pupils.

17
Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work
6. Suggested Post-Lesson tasks

Below can be found 12 lesson tasks which teachers may choose from or adapt for the post-
lesson section within the Scheme of Work. These post-lesson tasks are suitable for ending
almost any skills-focused lesson. Teachers can, of course, use their own post-lesson tasks
whenever they think that these would be more suitable for the pupils they teach.

Please note that these tasks are the same for Primary Year 1 and Primary Year 2. The
language and vocabulary focus will be different, however, and some tasks can be modified for
slightly older or more proficient pupils, as is noted in the task description.

POST-LESSON TASK 1: SPOT THE DIFFERENCES

AIM: to provide practice in listening for detail

MATERIALS: Text

1. Before the lesson, identify 3 or 4 factual changes you could make to a listening or reading text
which pupils will work on in the lesson (e.g. Whisper talks to fruit instead of Whisper talks to
animals).
2. During the lesson, after pupils have worked on a listening or reading text and understood it, tell
them they are going to listen to the text again but this time there are some differences.
3. Ask pupils to listen and put their hands up each time they hear something different from the
original text, and to be ready to correct the difference.
4. Read out your text with changes.
5. Pupils listen and correct the differences to make it the same as the original.

POST-LESSON TASK 2: MAKE CONNECTIONS

AIM: to review topic vocabulary and grammar

MATERIALS: Flashcards, pens and board

1. Before the lesson, choose or prepare between 3 and 6 flashcards which represent the content
of a text which pupils will work on in the lesson.
2. During the lesson and after pupils have worked on the text, place the flashcards on the board
and elicit ideas from the pupils about items in the pictures.
3. Ask pupils how the pictures link to the text (e.g. if a flashcard shows some animals, the link
may be The story is on a farm).

To extend, if time:
4. Put pupils into pairs and give them a short time (1 or 2 minutes) to tell each other everything
they can remember from the text, using the flashcards to help them. This could be sentences
focusing on content or simply words.
5. Ask pupils to tell you the connections they have made between the pictures and the text.
6. If you want pupils to practise writing as well as speaking, pupils could come up to the board
and write information under the corresponding flashcard.

18
Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work
POST-LESSON TASK 3: GUESS THE WORD

AIM: to review topic vocabulary

MATERIALS: Cards with words or pictures, bag

1. Choose about 7 words related to the lesson.


2. Prepare small cards with the names or pictures of the items.
3. Put the words in a bag then take out a card without letting the pupils see what it is.
4. Explain the word without saying the name or mime it.
5. Invite pupils to guess the word.
6. Continue with all the words until there is none left in the bag.

A possible variation is:


1. Make 3 or 4 sets of the cards.
2. Explain or mime 1 or 2 words yourself (step 4 above).
3. Divide pupils into groups.
4. Give each group a set of cards and ask pupils to follow steps 4 6 in their own groups.

POST-LESSON TASK 4: CORRECT THE ERROR

AIM: to review topic language, and to review spelling and punctuation

MATERIALS: Board, words or sentences with errors from pupils written work

1. During the lesson, identify 4 or 5 words or sentences with errors the pupils made in a writing
task. These should be common errors made by more than 1 pupil.
2. Write the sentences on the board.
3. Ask pupils to form groups to identify the errors and to correct them.
4. Elicit answers with the whole class.
5. Ask pupils, a different pupil for each mistake, to come up to the board to write the corrected
versions.

19
Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work
POST-LESSON TASK 5: REMEMBER IT, SAY IT

AIM: to practise the pronunciation of key language from the lesson

MATERIALS: Listening or reading text, board

1. After pupils have worked on a listening or reading text, choose a key sentence or sentences
you want the pupils to focus on.
2. Make sure that pupils understand the meaning of the sentence(s).
3. Say the sentence twice and ask the pupils to repeat it.
4. Repeat step 3 if you have chosen more than 1 sentence.
5. Extend the activity by writing a sentence on the board. Rub out a word and replace it with a
line. Ask the pupils to say the complete sentence: they have to remember the missing word
too.
6. Continue rubbing out words until there are only lines on the board and invite pupils to say the
full sentence.

NB: You could adapt this to focus on vocabulary from the lesson by replacing the sentences with a
list of words that pupils remember (the number of words depending on their familiarity, the age and
the proficiency of the pupils). Start with a small number (2 or 3) and work upwards.

POST-LESSON TASK 6: WHISPER AND WRITE

AIM: to review topic language and spelling

MATERIAL: Board

1. Draw 4 columns on the board.


2. Divide the class into 4 teams. Ask each team to stand in a line facing the board.
3. Give each pupil at the front of the line some chalk or a board pen.
4. Go to the back of the line and ask the 4 pupils at the back of each line to come to you. Whisper
a topic word (e.g. coconut) or instruction (e.g. Draw a triangle and a square).
5. The pupils go back to their lines and whisper the topic language to the next pupil in the line.
This continues until it reaches the pupil at the front of the line, who writes down the word, or
follows the instruction.
6. Each team gets one point for a correct answer. The team who finishes first gets an extra point
if their answer is correct.
7. Continue with new words or instructions. Change the order in the line each time (e.g. pupil at
the front goes to the back, so that there is a new pupil at the front).

20
Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work
POST-LESSON TASK 7: LISTEN AND POINT

AIM: to review topic vocabulary

MATERIALS: Flashcards of topic vocabulary

1. Briefly review the vocabulary on the flashcards.


2. Place the flashcards on the walls around the room.
3. Say a word. Pupils point to the corresponding flashcard.
4. Divide pupils into groups. Pupils continue this activity in their groups.

POST-LESSON TASK 8: MAKE A WORD LADDER

AIM: to review topic vocabulary, to practise spelling

MATERIALS: Board

1. Divide the class into 4 or 5 teams, depending on your class size. There should be about 4 or 5
pupils in each team.
2. Ask each team to stand in a line facing the board. Give each pupil at the front of the line some
chalk or a board pen.
3. Write the lesson topic on the board (e.g. school), and draw a ladder of at least 4 to 5 spaces for
each team (at least one for each pupil in a team).
4. The pupil at the front of each line writes a word connected to the topic at the bottom of the
ladder. They then pass on the chalk or pen to the second pupil, who writes a word in the next
space on the ladder. Pupils can help each other with spellings if need be.
5. You can either continue until each pupil has had a turn to write a word or you can continue for
a fixed time, e.g. 3 minutes, if you have more time available.
6. Each team gets one point for a word which is related to the topic and correctly spelled. If a
team has a word which no other team has, they get an extra point. Alternatively, you can avoid
giving points for these kinds of game, but offer praise yourself and from the other students
when teams do well.

21
Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work
POST-LESSON TASK 9: READ YOUR FRIENDS MIND

AIM: to review topic vocabulary, to practise listening, speaking and reading

MATERIALS: Board

1. Write target language on the board (e.g. days of the week, I like/dont like): about 5-7 target
items is a good number. Write a number in front of each target language item.
2. Quickly review the target language with pupils.
3. Ask a pupil to come to the front and whisper to you or write down on a piece of paper the
number of the target language item she is thinking of.
4. Give the pupil about 5 seconds to pretend to transmit the word or message in their mind to
their classmates, who pretend to be mind readers.
5. The other pupils write down the number they think she has chosen. If your class is large, pupils
can work in pairs to agree a number together and write it down.
6. Quickly check around the class, asking each pupil to say the phrase they guessed.
7. The pupil at the front keeps a score by ticking or making a mark on the board against the
number of each target language item suggested.
8. Calculate the pupils score. For example, if he or she were thinking of the phrase I like pizza,
and 4 pupils guessed this correctly, the pupil scores 4 points.
9. Repeat this with a new pupil coming to the front, to see if they can beat the score of the
previous pupil.

If this scoring system is too complex for younger children or those less proficient in numeracy, you
can tell pupils to put their hands up. The pupil at the front chooses others until someone guesses
the correct word.

POST-LESSON TASK 10: TEST YOUR MEMORY

AIM: to review topic vocabulary and grammar (e.g. there is/are, have/has got)

MATERIALS: Picture in the textbook with some details in it, or a picture you have chosen from
another source

1. Make sure that each pupil can see the textbook picture or your chosen picture.
2. Give them 1 minute to look at the picture and remember whats in it.
3. Ask them to close their books. Hide the picture if you are not using the textbook.
4. Make true/false statements (e.g. There are 2 pupils in the picture. The car is red).
5. Pupils tell you if your statements are true or false, and correct false statements.
6. Divide the class into groups, and ask pupils to continue the game in their groups: give them
more time to look at the picture if they need to do this in order to make their statements.

22
Primary Year 2 Scheme of Work
POST-LESSON TASK 11: WHAT ABOUT ME?

AIM: to review topic content or vocabulary and encourage pupils to make links between English
learning and their own lives

MATERIALS: Board and/or pictures, exercise books

1. Choose some key words or language from the lesson. Write the words on the board and ask
pupils to read them or use pictures to elicit them and put the pictures on the board.
2. Look at the board and act as if you are thinking carefully. Say: What about me? Choose and
circle one of the pictures/words. This should be something you can connect to your personal
life (e.g. a cat you like cats or you have a cat).
3. Elicit from pupils why you have circled the cat.
4. Ask pupils to do the same in pairs by telling the word to their partner, who should try to guess
what the connection is.

POST-LESSON TASK 12: WHAT ABOUT YOU?

AIM: to reflect on and share learning

MATERIALS: Exercise book for more literate pupils, or none

1. Act as if you are thinking and say What can you remember? Give a key word from the lesson.
Write it on the board (for more literate pupils).
2. Nominate a more proficient pupil and ask them What about you? What can you remember?
Elicit an answer and write it on the board. Then give another example; then elicit another
example. You could include examples of other language structures too, depending on your
lesson focus and level of pupils.
3. Ask pupils to work in pairs to share what they remember from the lesson. More literate pupils
can write in their notebooks or it can be done as a speaking activity. This would also be a little
quicker. Set either a time limit or a number of words limit.
4. An adaptation of this would be suitable to review different sounds that have been taught or
reviewed by asking pupils to remember words with a particular sound. This could be from the
lesson or could be from the whole year so far.
