A good understanding of grammar gives children conscious control over how they construct their writing; it is an essential part of learning and communication. At Altmore, in KS1, we embed the teaching of grammar in our daily English lessons as well as teaching a discrete grammar lesson each week. Children take part in Early Morning Work each day, where they complete short grammar activities to consolidate learning.
Terminology is taught from an early age, and children learn to recognise and use the correct terminology through discussion and practice. We place high importance on the continuous consolidation of the terms children need to understand, in order to allow them to meet their specific, age-related expectations, in line with the National Curriculum.
Here are some useful websites with games that children can play to develop their grammar.
