Appendix 2: page 74
Vocabulary, grammar and punctuation
• The grammar of our first language is learnt
naturally and implicitly through interactions
with other speakers and from reading.
• Explicit knowledge of grammar is, however,
very important, as it gives us more conscious
control and choice in our language.
• Building this knowledge is best achieved
through a focus on grammar within the
teaching of reading, writing and speaking.
Appendix 2: page 74
Vocabulary, grammar and punctuation
• Once pupils are familiar with a grammatical
concept (for example ‘modal verb’), they
should be encouraged to apply and explore
this concept in the grammar of their own
speech and writing and to note where it is
used by others.
• Young pupils, in particular, use more complex
language in speech than in writing, and
teachers should build on this, aiming for a
smooth transition to sophisticated writing.
Appendix 2: page 74
Vocabulary, grammar and punctuation
• The table focuses on Standard English and should be read
in conjunction with the programme of study as it sets out
the statutory requirements.
• The first strand refers to the structure of words and
vocabulary building.
• The table shows when concepts should be introduced
first, not necessarily when they should be completely
understood.
• It is very important, therefore, that the content in earlier
years be revisited in subsequent years to consolidate
knowledge and build on pupils’ understanding.
• Teachers should also go beyond the content set out here
if they feel it is appropriate.
Appendix 2: page 74
Vocabulary, grammar and punctuation
• The grammatical terms that pupils should learn
are set out at the bottom.
• They should learn to recognise and use the
terminology through discussion and practice.
• All terms in bold should be understood with the
meanings set out in the glossary.
