Spelling Punctuation and Grammar

Grammar is taught so that children understand the effect the choices they make have on meaning and is taught in the context of purposeful talk, reading and writing. It is expected that grammar will be taught explicitly, in context with further opportunities planned in order that children can apply and practice their learning across the curriculum so that they deepen their conceptual understanding. Grammar can be taught as a whole lesson or a series of starters depending on the teaching sequence. Grammar lessons are instructive with varied opportunities for children to apply and demonstrate their learning during guided and independent writing.

At St John’s we use the Rising stars skills builders progression books which allow the children to learn the relevant grammar required for their year group. Children will use the tasks and then apply to their current writing genre.
