The national curriculum sets out a clear progression of grammatical skills which children should be taught across Key Stage 1 (Years 1 & 2) and Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6). At Wheatfield we try to teach these skills in a variety of ways to make them memorable but, most importantly, enables children to apply the skills consistently when they write independently.

We understand that some of the terminology may be new or unfamiliar to parents, especially if you were taught during a period when these skills were not part of the curriculum. The glossary below (produced by Oxford school improvement) provides a clear explanation of the skills we teach across the primary curriculum.
