The Grammar 3 Pupil Book teaches grammar, spelling and punctuation.

The Grammar 3 Pupil Book is designed to follow on from the Pupil Books for Grammar 1 and 2. The spelling lessons in the Grammar 3 Pupil Book not only teach many new spelling patterns, but also introduce the children to a large number of multisyllabic words. Regular activities ensure that the children are not only able to spell these words correctly, but also understand the words’ meanings and can use them in context. In the grammar lessons, the children continue to refine and expand upon their existing knowledge: for example, by learning how to form continuous, as well as simple, verb tenses. The children are also introduced to many new concepts, including possessive pronouns and collective nouns. In addition, the children build upon their knowledge of sentence structure, by learning about the subject and object of a sentence, and the differences between a sentence and a phrase. All of this knowledge helps the children to bring clarity to their writing. This material is recommended by Cambridge International Examinations to support the Cambridge Primary English curriculum framework.

The Grammar 3 Pupil and Teacher’s Books cover the following areas: possessive pronouns, questions and exclamations in speech,

conjugating verbs, syllables, sentences and phrases,

writing in paragraphs,

collective nouns,

present participle,

the subject and object of a sentence,

contractions,

irregular plurals,

subject and object pronouns,

parsing,

simple and continuous verb tenses, prefixes and suffixes,

...and much more.
