The Grammar 6 Pupil Book teaches grammar, spelling and punctuation.

The Grammar 6 Pupil Book is designed specifically for use with the Grammar 6 Teacher’s Book. Together, they follow on from the Grammar 1 to 5 Pupil and Teacher’s Books and provide the next year of grammar, spelling and punctuation teaching. The Grammar 6 Pupil and Teacher’s Books are the final books in the series. The spelling lessons in the Grammar 6 Pupil Book not only teach many new spelling patterns, but further extend the children’s knowledge 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 use them in context. In the grammar lessons, the children continue to refine and expand upon their existing knowledge: for example, by learning about linking verbs, gerunds and relative pronouns. The children are also introduced to many new concepts, including formal and informal writing and the active and passive voice. In addition, the children build upon their knowledge of sentence structure by learning about direct and indirect objects, as well as complex sentences. All of this knowledge helps the children to bring clarity to their writing.

The Grammar 6 Pupil and Teacher’s Books cover the following areas: parsing and sentence walls, the active and passive voice, past participles as adjectives, formal and informal writing, Grammar 6 Pupil Book

paragraph structure and cohesion, colons and semicolons, simple, continuous and perfect tenses, countable and uncountable nouns, prepositional phrases as adjectives, coordinating and subordinating conjunctions, simple, compound and complex sentences, modal verbs and adverbs, indirect objects, relative clauses, imperatives, linking verbs, alliteration, adverbials, gerunds, idioms... ...and much more.

Indirect Objects and Sentence Walls In each sentence, underline the verb in red. Then identify the subject, direct object and indirect object. The indirect object is the person or thing to whom or for whom the verb action is done. o

My cousin made me a beautiful dress. He wrote his girlfriend some poems. Grandpa bought the baby a toy octopus. Their grandparents sang the babies a lullaby. Firmly, the centurion gave the soldiers an order. The twins immediately took their mother the note. I patiently knitted Grandma a beige hat and scarf. Excitedly, Alex and Meg showed Uncle Jim the photos.

Now choose one of the sentences and write it on the sentence wall. Put the indirect object and anything that describes it in the same box, but put the indirect object first and the other words underneath, and join them with a diagonal line.
