Grammar is an essential part of the English curriculum and will now form part of the Year 6 SATs tests. Please ask your child whether they know and can identify different types of connectives, examples of nouns, adverbs, verbs, adjectives, pronouns, subordinate and main clauses and can confidently use a wide range of different punctuation types.
Each English lesson we practise grammar skills and how to create exciting, powerful sentences to include in our writing.
It is vital that your child reads every day so that they come into contact with quality sentences in books in order to help them improve their own writing. Children often 'borrow' ideas from the authors they read.
