Are you concerned about the teaching of grammar across the school?
The teaching of grammar has become a key focus for Primary schools with the introduction of a spelling, grammar and punctuation test in 2013; a high profile in the draft English curriculum and the notion of the use of Standard English in the new Teacher Standards.
This book considers the key issues in ensuring that the teaching of grammar is effective in not only giving children the skills they need but also in making them effective, confident writers. It offers guidance and practical approaches to allow the development of a whole school strategy towards the effective teaching of grammar. The book also offers an approach to preparing for the 2013 KS2 Grammar, Spelling and Punctuation Test.
