Grammar, Punctuation and Spellings

Grammar and Punctuation Progression

Grammar and Punctuation 

  • In Key Stage 1, the teaching of Grammar and Punctuation is embedded within English lessons; full coverage is ensured through the use of the Read Write Inc. programme
  • In Key Stage 2, children receive one discrete Grammar and Punctuation lesson per week, focusing on one element of the National Curriculum requirements for their year group. Further coverage is achieved through the use of The Write Stuff programme (coverage is shown in the English Curriculum Overview documents)
  • Additionally, our children use to support their learning at home and at school. Teachers set specific tasks for children to complete and also provide targets/goals.


"I like when we do the grammar and punctuation questions. They’re really fun and we all try our hardest to get better if we get them wrong. It’s so much fun." (Year 3 Child)


"I’ve learnt about fronted adverbials that need a comma after them. I know there are fronted adverbials about time and place." (Year 4 Child)


"If I make a mistake I try to make sure that next time I don’t get it incorrect." (Year 5 Child)

Spelling Progression Years 2-6


  • Spelling is taught from Years R-2 using Read Write Inc. 
  • In Years 2-6, Emile Spelling is used to deliver weekly spelling sessions based around a specific pattern or rule. Children are given codes to access activities on the Emile app at home that will allow them to learn and practise work throughout the week. 'Spelling Battles' are scheduled at school through the Emile app to assess children's progress with spelling
