We have recently purchased a new exciting resource called ‘Grammar Hammer' to improve grammar skills.  

Each week all pupils complete a grammar test which includes 25 questions based on different elements of grammar.  Please click here to see examples of what a grammar hammer looks like for your child:

Teacher’s mark the grammar hammer, then return it to pupils’. At the bottom of the Grammar Hammer sheet,  pupils’ scores are converted into colours…red;  yellow and green.  Pupils’ strive to be green and enjoy beating last week’s score, aiming to get their own personal best.

All pupils are taught grammar skills every day for 20 minutes.  Within grammar lessons, teachers teach children the vocabulary they need to discuss their reading, writing and spoken language. Teachers’ strive to ensure that all pupils learn the correct grammatical terms in English and that these terms are integrated within teaching across the curriculum.
