Improving pupils' understanding and use of grammar, punctuation and spelling is a key driver in our school.
Throughout Key Stages 1 and 2, we teach daily spelling lessons that focus on specific spelling rules and patterns. Pupils are tested on these in spelling tests. Punctuation and grammar knowledge and skills are taught in discrete weekly lessons and are then embedded in daily teaching of writing. Punctuation and grammar lessons are planned for in-line with National Curriculum requirements. In addition to this, revision or extension of skills is targeted within each class to ensure that all pupils are making progress at their own level.
Termly grammar, punctuation and spelling tests are used to assess pupils' progress in this area and identify any gaps in learning.
