Schofield & Sims Grammar and Punctuation?is a comprehensive programme for teaching grammar and punctuation while also building on vocabulary, reading and writing skills. Through structured lessons, stimulating focus texts and engaging practice activities, children not only learn the correct terminology and usage of grammar and punctuation, but also develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to apply them successfully in their own writing.
The?Grammar 1 pupil book consists of 15 double-page lessons and covers the National Curriculum requirements for Year 1. Featured topics include: words and sentences; capital letters; full stops;?spacing;?the joining word ?and?;?question marks;?exclamation marks;?singular and plural;?describing word;?linking words;?verb endings; and?the prefix ?un??.
Each practice spread contains concise summaries of the key learning point for each lesson, two sets of ?Try it? and ?More practice? exercises?and a short ?Sentence practice? activity. Regular?Revision?pages reinforce learning, while imaginative?Writing tasks allow children to ?show off? their grammar and punctuation skills in a more formal context. Additional features provided at the back of the book include a?Glossary?to support the confident use of grammatical terminology and a self-evaluation checklist to encourage pupils to assess their own learning.
