Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling

Grammar, punctuation and spelling (GPS) are taught, where possible, through writing and reading.  There are times when discrete lessons may be appropriate and we use a variety of resources, including the spelling shed scheme and online Spell Zone. Assessment for GPS takes place on entry, mid-year and end of year, using NFER and SATs papers.  Spelling rules are taught, the content is dependent upon ability.  Spellings and spelling rules are taught at least three times a week in school. Pupils are encouraged to learn spellings at home and spelling lists are sent out each term/week, depending on the class.

Grammar and punctuation are taught usually taught through writing but at times discrete lessons may be needed.
