Grammar and Punctuation

Vision Statement

“At Crossacres, we want our children to have a deep understanding of how our language works, enabling them to make choices and have greater control over their writing.  We aim to equip our children with the skills they need to use Standard English confidently and effectively throughout their school career and into their lives beyond school.”  Miss. Parker

Nelson Spelling

At Crossacres Primary Academy, we use the Nelson Scheme of Work to ensure that all of our pupils have a complete and robust education of grammar, spelling, vocabulary and punctuation. The scheme is for children in Years One to Year Six. All children complete Grammar and Spelling work in separate books. Using the Nelson scheme and the Expectations from the National Curriculum 2014, we have devised long term and medium term plans for Grammar and Spelling. These are below:
