Grammar is a vitally important part of language learning. By teaching grammar, we give our pupils the means to express themselves. At Great Binfields Primary, Grammar and Punctuation is taught within daily Literacy lessons through warm up and editing activities. Children learn how grammar and punctuation is used to build sentences which then develops into longer precise paragraphs. The grammar and punctuation they learn in class is then transferred into their written work. We constantly emphasise the link between reading and writing and during reading sessions, children will be encouraged to identify grammatical features they have learned about during their grammar and writing sessions.
All schools have to follow an agreed curriculum in the teaching of reading (and other subjects).
