3 New Curriculum, new expectations. English: Purpose of study English has a pre-eminent place in education and in society. A highquality education in English will teach pupils to write and speak fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others and through their reading and listening, others can communicate with them. Through reading in particular, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Literature, especially, plays a key role in such development. Reading also enables pupils both to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know. All the skills of language are essential to participating fully as a member of society; pupils, therefore, who do not learn to speak, read and write fluently and confidently are effectively disenfranchised.
4 The NC for English aims that all pupils: read easily, fluently and with good understanding develop the habit of reading widely and often, for both pleasure and information acquire a wide vocabulary, an understanding of grammar and knowledge of linguistic conventions for reading, writing and spoken language appreciate our rich and varied literary heritage write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style in and for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences use discussion in order to learn; they should be able to elaborate and explain clearly their understanding and ideas are competent in the arts of speaking and listening, making formal presentations, demonstrating to others and participating in debate.

11 Sample questions from KS2 test
14 Word Classes
15 Nouns Nouns are words that refers to a person, place, thing, event or quality: doctor', ' coal', and ' beauty' are all nouns A proper noun is the name of a particular person, place or thing, and always begins with a capital letter. Amy went to France on Saturday and took her camera with her. Amy, France and Saturday are proper nouns and camera is a common noun. It is important that children recognise words such as love, jealousy, anger etc as nouns they are called abstract nouns.
16 Guess the Noun! On your whiteboards, draw a picture of a noun and be prepared to share with your partner, as they will be guessing which noun it is!
17 Pronouns A pronoun is a word that takes the place of nouns, for example: Amy took her camera. She took it. She is a pronoun that takes the place of Amy; it takes the place of camera.
18 Verbs A verb is a word or phrase that describes an action, condition, or experience: The words " run", " keep", and " feel" are all verbs. Children often forget that IS, AM, ARE, WAS, WERE are all verbs they come from the infinitive TO BE.
19 Verb Charades! Act out a verb to your partner, they need to guess what verb you are performing. Remember, a verb is a doing word.
20 Watch out! Some words can belong to more than one word class. Children often get caught out and will identify a verb when it s actually a noun For example: He went for a walk. Let s go for a run.
21 Adverbs An adverb describes a verb: it tells us how, when or where the verb is actioned. e.g. He ate his breakfast quickly. (adverb of manner) He ate his breakfast yesterday. (adverb of time) He ate his breakfast in the kitchen. (adverb of place)
22 Adverbs He ate his breakfast in the kitchen. Adverbial phrases Sometimes more than one word can do the adverb's job. This is called an adverbial phrase. He ate his lunch really quickly. The words really quickly are an adverbial phrase. Words like very, more, really and extremely are often used to make an adverb even stronger. Where can we put an adverb? Adverbs and adverbial phrases can come before or after a verb. He ate his lunch quickly. Quickly, he ate his lunch. He did his homework later that day. Later that day, he did his homework.
23 On your whiteboards Write a sentence including the verb you have just acted out but add an adverb to describe it. John ate his food quickly. Quickly, John ate his food.
24 On your whiteboards Adjectives describe a noun. Think of adjectives to describe your child.
25 Clause vs Phrase
26 Clause vs Phrase Which explanation is for a: Clause and a Phrase A is a group of words containing a subject and verb. A is a group of words without a subject-verb component.
27 Clause vs Phrase A clause is a group of words containing a subject and verb A phrase is a group of words without a subject-verb component a group of words that doesn t make sense on their own.
28 Can you distinguish the phrases from the clauses? Look at the underlined part P or C? 1 The dough took ages to rise. 2 For four days the child had a terrible hacking cough. 3 The doctor did a thorough examination of the patient and decided he would need to rest for at least a week. 4 There are a huge number of people living in the Borough of Barnet. 5 Above the castle lurked a menacing monster. 6 All through the night the rain fell. 7 I d like to go to Disneyland for my dream holiday next summer. 8 Next Saturday evening, we re having pizza and chips.
29 Phrases v Clauses 1 The dough took ages to rise. 2 For four days the child had a terrible hacking cough. 3 The doctor did a thorough examination of the patient and decided he would need to rest for at least a week. 4 There are a huge number of people living in the Borough of Barnet. 5 Above the castle lurked a menacing monster. 6 All through the night the rain fell. 7 I d like to go to Disneyland for my dream holiday next summer. 8 Next Saturday evening, we re having pizza and chips.
30 Parenthesis Parenthesis is extra information added into a sentence, along with punctuation to sign-post the drop-in. The punctuation used can either be brackets, dashes or commas.
31 Parenthesis Examples My auntie is coming to visit at the weekend. My auntie, who is from London, is coming to visit at the weekend. Ben got up on stage and sang a song. Ben without any encouragement got up on stage and sang a song. The night was a great success. The night was a great success (even though he d been dreading it).
32 Over to you Write a simple sentence (a sentence that contains only one main clause) on your board. Pass your board to the left. Use brackets, dashes or commas to add extra information to the sentence you have received.
33 Coordinating Conjunctions Use the acronym Fanboys to remember them!
34 Coordinating Conjunctions Coordinating conjunctions are used to join two main clauses to form a compound sentence. Ben was cold. He put on a jumper. Ben was cold so he put on a jumper. The city was busy. She felt all alone. The city was busy yet she felt all alone.
35 Subordinating Conjunctions
36 Subordinate Clauses Subordinating conjunctions are used to introduce a subordinate clause this is a clause that doesn t make sense on its own and therefore must be used with at least one main clause to form a sentence. When I grow up I want to be an astronaut. When I grow up, I want to be an astronaut. Note the comma after the subordinate clause can you hear the pause?
37 Subordinate Clauses The subordinate clause doesn t have to go at the beginning of the sentence. When I grow up, I want to be an astronaut. I want to be an astronaut when I grow up. The comma is not needed if the subordinate clause follows the main clause no pause!
38 Recap Coordinating conjunctions (FANBOYS) are used to join main clauses to form compound sentences. The sun was shining and the birds were singing. Anna hurt her arm but she didn t cry. Subordinating conjunctions are used to start a subordinate clause this doesn t make sense on its own. Sentences containing one or more subordinate clauses are complex sentences. Although it was raining, we went for a walk. Phil went to bed because he was exhausted. Subordinating conjunctions can go at the beginning of a sentence whereas coordinating conjunctions can t.
39 Let s have a go since although while as when despite the fact because even though if Choose a subordinating conjunction to start with. Can you write a complex sentence using these three nouns?
40 Relative clauses A relative clause is a type of subordinate clause. It gives more information about the noun in a sentence and begins with either who, which, that, whose (which are relative pronouns ), or where, why, when (which are relative adverbs ).
41 Advanced punctuation A colon can be used to introduce a list. A semi-colon can be used to separate items in a list when commas would cause ambiguity. In our classroom, we have: a large map, which Amy brought in; a new, wall-mounted interactive whiteboard; a selection of books, both fiction and non-fiction; and a class plant. Using commas alone would cause confusion. In our classroom, we have: a large map, which Amy brought in, a new, wall-mounted interactive whiteboard, a selection of books, both fiction and non-fiction, and a class plant.
42 Advanced punctuation Colons and semi-colons can also be used to link parts of a sentence. Semi-colons Use between two main clauses when the second clause is closely related to the first. Some people write in biro; others prefer to use a fountain pen. I love maths investigations; I also like writing stories.
43 Colons Advanced punctuation Use after a main clause to introduce an explanation or example. Annie always wears a cap outside: strong sunlight hurts her eyes. My niece is the star of the show: she s the one in the pink tutu. There s only one place I d like to be today: the beach. A dash can also be used in these situations it s a bit more informal.
