Writing, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling
Book Club January 2020
We enjoyed a wonderful poetry week in November and wanted to share some of the fantastic poems the children produced. Please click here to see an overview of the week.
Our children enjoy recording their thoughts and write for lots of different purposes from Aboriginal poems to recording Science investigations.
Writing is an essential skill and grammar, punctuation and spelling are the building blocks of writing. We recently held an information evening for parents focusing on ways to support your child at home to develop their grammar, punctuation and spelling understanding.
Please follow this link to view the presentation that was shown on the night.
We have also added some documents that show you what we teach in each year group and a handy glossary to explain the terminology. We hope you find them useful.
These websites maybe useful for you to help to support your child at home:

We use the SPAG website for our children in years 2-6. By using this website we can reinforce the teaching that the children have had in school and also identify where children need a little more help and support. Children in years 2 and above receive their own user name and password so they can complete their weekly homework online. We hope you find it useful, if you do have any questions please ask your child's class teacher.
Mrs Hollands our English Subject leader has complied a Reading and Spelling Parent's Booklet which contains advice for when reading with your child.
