Grammar and Punctuation

We believe grammar is most meaningfully taught within a piece of writing when the children can see it in action. We teach grammar within each genre of writing and carefully consider which model text is appropriate to model the grammar in action, so the children see its value and purpose. 

We use the Anchor Education videos as interactive tool to help embed key concepts and we were lucky enough to have Ed visit the school to launch across all classes.

Here is a link to the Anchor Education website should you wish to practice the songs at home. Anchor Creative Education


The following progression documents detail the grammar and punctuation progression through school. We use the following acronyms to support with recall;

BOA - but, or, and

BOAS - but, or, and, so

WITB - when, if, that, because

AWHITEBUS - although, where, however, if, though, even if, before, until, so that

FANBOYS  - for, and, not, but, or, yet, so
