Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar

Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar

Spelling, punctuation and Grammar (SPAG) is a key component for successful writing and it is taught in context at Lower Farm.

Children in EYFS and Year 1 learn spellings based on their phonics sounds and from Year 2 onwards, children learn the spellings from Twinkl that are based on the national curriculum spelling rules.

Punctuation and Grammar is taught in English lessons and reinforced in contextualised starters every day.

We follow our own long term and medium term plans and they can be found below.

We assess children in SPaG termly to monitor progress and provide intervention and extra support where needed. These assessments also inform our planning for the next term.
