Grammar, spelling and punctuation are key areas in the teaching of English.
How do we teach Spaghetti?
At Little Hill, we provide the children with daily Spaghetti sessions to improve there knowledge of grammar and punctuation. This knowledge is then transferred into written tasks, on which the children will be assessed. Children also have weekly spelling sessions in which they are taught spelling patterns. These sessions are planned to meet the needs of the child at a level appropriate for them.
Please find below a glossary of terms and the National Curriculum expectations for grammar and punctuation. Also, the National Curriculum expectations for spelling and a guide for how you could help at home.
