National Curriculum SPAG

The grammatical difference between plural and possessive -s

Standard English forms for verb inflections instead of local spoken forms (e.g. we were instead of we was, or I

did instead of I done)

Noun phrases expanded by the addition of modifying adjectives, nouns and preposition phrases (e.g. the teacher expanded to: the strict maths teacher with curly hair)

 

Fronted adverbials (For example, Later that day, I heard the bad news)

Use of paragraphs to

organise ideas around a

theme

Appropriate choice of

pronoun or noun within and across sentences to aid cohesion and avoid repetition.

Use of inverted commas and other punctuation to indicate direct speech (For example a comma after the reporting clause; end punctuation with inverted commas: The conductor shouted, “Sit down!”)

Apostrophes to mark plural possession (e.g. the girl’s name, the boys’ boots)

Use of commas after fronted adverbials (e.g. Later that day, I heard the bad news.)
