How does Grammar and Punctuation work? Based on the model ‘teach, practise, apply and assess’, Schofield & Sims Grammar and Punctuation provides you with everything you need to teach pupils the art of writing.
Teach Each lesson plan includes detailed guidance on how to teach each learning point in context using the Focus text provided, as well as suggestions for how to extend the lesson for more advanced learners.
Apply The teaching notes are full of ideas for fun activities where pupils can apply their learning in speech and independent writing, while termly Writing tasks in the pupil books allow them to ‘show off’ their skills in a more formal context.
Practise Each lesson is supported by a corresponding page in the pupil books featuring a concise summary of the lesson focus, followed by two sets of tailored practice questions and a short writing task.
Assess A range of formal and informal assessment materials are provided, including a quick dictation task at the end of each lesson, regular Revision pages to check learning and an end-of-year test, similar in style to the national tests.
Grammar and Punctuation and mastery ✓ Teaching is aimed at the whole class and pupils move at the same pace through the programme.
✓ Lessons build on prior learning and link to other areas of the curriculum. ✓ Concepts are continuously revisited, developing pupils’ understanding in greater depth each time.
✓ Children are encouraged to apply learning purposefully and in a range of contexts so that knowledge and skills become automatic.
✓ Suggestions are given for how you can extend the focus for pupils who have mastered the concept and are ready to delve deeper.
