Description

The Getting to Grips with English Grammar series is built on the premise that pupils need to put grammar and punctuation rules into practice in their writing and reading for them to truly understand grammar.

Grammar is important because it is part of our everyday communication. It helps us to be understood and to make our communication more effective, clear and powerful. It is a tool through which we can express ourselves. Teaching grammar effectively can give children the confidence to develop their language and literacy skills much faster.

The Getting to Grips with English Grammar series is designed to give children more confidence with their grammar. The books are filled with imaginative ideas linked to exciting themes, which will transport children through a grammatical journey that is fun and action-packed.

The comprehension activities at the beginning of each theme serve two purposes: they help to set the context for the activities that follow and they introduce key grammatical concepts. These activities demonstrate how grammar is used in context and provide excellent talking points for introducing and reinforcing the grammatical point being studied.

Within each theme there are opportunities for expanding children’s writing. These activities are useful for assessing whether children can transfer the grammar points they have learned into their own writing. Mini quizzes at the end of each theme are design to ‘test’ how much they have remembered.

Help your pupils get a firm grip on grammar and punctuation with this photocopiable six-book series, Getting to Grips with English Grammar for Years 1–6!

Answers are included.
