Grammar is taught as far as possible within a writing lesson and linked to either what children will need to use or sometimes where there is a common misconception. Grammar can be taught discretely at times.
We also ensure children are taught spellings discretely to encourage home/school learning. Children are given spellings to put into sentences and in KS2 also find definitions in dictionary. This helps children to learn meaning and spelling together.
We follow the national curriculum and develop cursive writing from reception year. Specific handwriting lessons are taught in KS1 and in KS2 any child that continues to have difficulties forming letters receives intervention support.
By Year 6 children should have developed their own style of handwriting.
We encourage children to be proud of their work and expect the highest standard from every child no matter what their ability.
