Grammar
At St, Andrew’s, grammar is an integral part of our English curriculum. The National Curriculum that children follow in English schools puts a great deal of emphasis on children understanding English grammar. At the end of each key stage (Year 2 and 6), children sit a Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling test.

Here is a grammar glossary that tells you all of the different grammar terms used and their meanings for each year group.
