This is the ultimate all-in-one guide for teaching writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar in the primary classroom

An easy-to-follow guide that breaks down the requirements of the National Curriculum and provides a planning overview for teaching, combining grammar, spelling, punctuation and writing into one book. It includes annotated high-quality model texts, to show teachers the benchmark for expectations in each year group and presents up-to-date content that reflects the new framework for writing.

A companion book for Key Stage 2 is also available.


Grammarsaurus Key Stage 1 Synopsis

Providing practical advice on teaching grammar and writing techniques through the use of non-fiction texts, Grammarsaurus is closely aligned to the National Curriculum and ensures teachers are addressing the right topics at the right time.

Each chapter focuses on a non-fiction text type: instructions, explanations, non-chronological reports, diary entries, newspaper reports and persuasive texts. There are photocopiable model texts for each year group, along with annotated versions guiding teachers through language features, grammar, spelling and punctuation opportunities, saving hours of lesson planning. Mitch Hudson and Anna Richards, expert teachers and creators of the popular Grammarsaurus website, answer common questions from teachers: 'When should I teach this punctuation mark?', or 'Which spellings should I be teaching my Year 2 class?'.

With examples covering a range of topics and up-to-date content using the latest curriculum framework, teachers can feel confident in tackling writing and SPaG across all the key areas of non-fiction. Please note that the PDF eBook version of this book cannot be printed or saved in any other format. It is intended for use on interactive whiteboards and projectors only.
