Grammar at Nottingham Academy
At the Nottingham Academy, we believe that grammar and punctuation form the foundations for sentence structure. Because we value grammar and punctuation so highly, it is included as part of every Literacy lesson as well as being a focus in other subjects.
We aim to cover a wide range of punctuation and grammatical skills, through a cross curricular and stimulating approach. As a result of this, grammar and punctuation is highlighted in all medium and short term planning, to ensure a breadth of study is covered across the school.
To help the children grasp the different concepts and strategies, we use a wide range of fun and interactive activities, to challenge and engage the children at all levels of learning, ready for application in writing tasks.
