The teaching of grammar throughout the school is usually modelled and taught through the Talk for Writing and Talk for Reading process. To aid children’s recall we have worked with artist Martin Young to create visual images to represent grammatical terms and have further emphasised this by adding kinaesthetic actions. The images and actions are generic and build year-on-year. Please refer to grammar books which can be downloaded to use at home.
We have developed kinaesthetic actions for all punctuation requirements from Reception - Year 6. These have been further supported by the creation of images by Martin in consultation with the children. When presenting a model text or undertaking the process of shared writing, punctuation is picked out in purple.
