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.
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.
- Relative clauses
- Modal verbs and adverbs
- Perfect forms of verbs
- 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’.
|Simple Sentence||Sentence with relative clause|

|Last week Charlie fell over.|
|On 22nd May, the rocket will launch.|
|The castle glittered in the sunset.|
|Christmas Day is my favourite day in the whole year.|
