The two links below outline the grammatical language and objectives children will cover within each year group. The glossary provides definitions and examples of the terminology.
In addition to Spell Olympics, pupils in KS2 also follow a spelling pathway in order to cover the statutory requirements outlined in the New National Curriculum. The link below shows how these objectives are taught across the year in years 3–6.
The New National Curriculum outlines statutory requirements for; Spoken Language, Reading — Word Recognition and Comprehension, Writing — Transcription, Handwriting, Composition, Vocabulary, Grammar and Punctuation. Each of the links below show which objectives will be covered in each of the areas aforementioned.
At Richmond we focus on teaching the different types of writing within imaginative, real purposes often involving real audiences. This helps pupils to appreciate the importance of English to their lives outside school. The documents below show how our English units link to our Cornerstones Imaginative Learning Projects, enabling pupils to use and apply all of their skills and knowledge across a wide range of curriuculum areas.
