On Tuesday 10th Feb Mrs Watling ran a workshop for parents to discuss the spelling, punctuation and grammar elements of the National Curriculum 2014. Thank you to the parents who attended for your thoughts and questions.
The link below will take you to documents that contain lots of useful information from the meeting regarding the new expectations for each year group. They also explain various elements of grammar and give some examples of activities to try out.
The DfE documents are the glossary of terms for the '2013 Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar' test and the National Curriculum 2014. They are a useful and comprehensive guide to the spelling, grammar and punctuation terminology, but please read the introductions carefully as they explain which parts the children are expected to know.
Mrs Watling will run further workshops this year in order to offer more support and information to parents
