Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar (SPaG)
Spelling and punctuation is taught from Reception onwards and grammar sessions are introduced in year 1. Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar 1 and Jolly Grammar 2 are used as key resources in EYFS and KS1. ‘Tricky’ words are taught and children have weekly spelling tests based on age appropriate spelling patterns and lists (appendix 1)
Pupils have discrete SPaG lessons based on national curriculum objectives and expectations (appendix 2) for each year group, with lower and higher objectives used to support and/or challenge pupils at a level appropriate to their ability/need.
Children from Years 1 onwards also have regular lessons exploring vocabulary, connectives, openers and punctuation (VCOPs) linked to their weekly ‘Big Writing’ session.
