Addressing the most challenging grammar topics introduced at KS2 and revisited at KS3, this pack is essential for teaching and consolidating grammar in years 5-8.

The comprehensive teaching notes provide a valuable curriculum support for teachers, while the wide range of resources and activities ensures that students have high-quality opportunities to apply and extend their learning – including in cross-curricular contexts. Each topic also includes KS2 SAT style questions in preparation for the Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling test (Paper 1) at the end of year 6.

Key features:

The grammar topics are organised into three sections (teach, practise, apply), and each topic includes the following:

  • definitions and explanations for teachers
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • student-friendly teaching resources
  • extended writing opportunities.

The pack is organised in the following topics:

  • Relative clauses
  • Modal verbs and adverbs
  • Adverbials
  • Perfect forms of verbs
  • Parenthesis
  • Commas
  • Passive verbs
  • Subjunctive verb forms
  • Colons and semi-colons

This is a sample student activity on relative clauses:

Relative clauses of time and place (when and where) 
Rewrite the simple sentences below by inserting a relative clause. The relative clause must begin with either ‘when’ or ‘where’.
