Grammar and punctuation terminology in the 2014 English National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2


Grammar and punctuation terminology in the 2014 English National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2

The table below shows the areas of grammar and punctuation covered in the new curriculum and indicates in which year groups terminology for these areas is introduced.  Once the term is introduced, it needs to be used consistently in all year groups from that point on.  This will consolidate learning and enable the terms to be absorbed into the children's vocabulary.

For the parents' version of this table, which links to explanations and activities, click here.
