Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar
When learning to write effectively, Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar must have a big focus.
As a school we embed the teaching of SPAG in our daily Literacy levels and teach discrete sessions on SPAG. We use many fun games and learning activities to help children to learn SPAG, for example Kung Fu Punctuation, and we use the 'posh' terminology for grammar, such as modal verb, fronted adverbial, noun phrase, subordinate clause. As part of SPAG we also teach VCOP (Vocabulary, Connectives, Openers and Punctuation) during discrete sessions and as lesson starters.
The following websites provide SPAG activities, games and videos which will help you support your child with their SPAG learning.
