Year 2 English skills () « back to years

The skills below are 100% aligned with Australian and New Zealand school curriculum and up to 90%+ with common core english. Skills are organized into groups and are ordered in a way we think would be useful. To master a skill, you will have to gain 10 stars (In case of a classroom initiated time-bound practise session, the time you can practise and the skill level is determined by your teacher).

There are 3 levels to each skill,

  1. Easy: A star will be taken away if you get 3 consecutive wrong answers.
  2. Medium: A star will be taken away if you get 2 consecutive wrong answers.
  3. Hard: A star will be taken away on each wrong answer.

Most skills have multiple type of questions with varying difficulties. If you keep getting wrong answers, system may give you the simplest of question to answer. Idea is to have you master these skills with a ground up approach. If you get an answer wrong, you can read the solution and helpful tips that briefly explain the skill/topic you are practising.
