Vocabulary, Grammar and Punctuation Provision Map

This document is subject to change as we continue to work as a school on curriculum development.

Recent research shows us that: National Curriculum notes and guidance “ The terms for discussing language should be embedded for pupils in the course of discussing their writing with them. Their attention should be drawn to the technical terms they need to learn”. HeadStart Primary “ Grammar is at the centre of both our spoken and written communications, and allows us to be clearly understood by others.


Using grammar poorly can result in messages being unclear, which affects our ability to communicate, and can hinder relationship building – an important skill for youngsters to develop. Using grammar correctly, on the other hand, makes listening and reading easier for others, making communication more enjoyable, and positively impacting relationships. Grammar also enables children to expand their vocabulary as they learn more interesting ways to communicate messages and present information.”

Developing Vocabulary, Grammar and Punctuation at Hindhayes -  With skilled practitioners in each year group sourcing and writing model texts for Talk4Writing units, we can tailor the vocabulary, grammar and punctuation that children develop as a part of spoken language and then teach children to transfer this knowledge and understanding into written outcomes. With this carefully constructed approach, children are gradually introduced to a range of features that build in small steps on prior knowledge and the specific terms children need to discuss writing are embedded through daily teaching rather than stand alone units of work.
