Grammar and Creativity for Year 5
Good writing may start with an exciting idea, but it needs structure to make sense to a reader. Grammar provides a framework on which to display the imagination.
Writing brings together individual expression and an understanding of the rules that allow our language (any language) to make sense. This book has been written with the view that grammar and creativity go hand in hand to produce good writing. Developing children’s understanding of the basics of English will encourage their literary adventures. The range of activities here has been designed to excite interest as well as guide children and teachers through the rules.
The guide is organised in an incremental way, later tasks being built on earlier ones. Step by step, each exercise calls upon skills and terminology already explored. In this way, both the child and their teacher will develop a sense of the progress being made. At any particular age, of course, children will be working at different levels and may need either more fundamental or more challenging work set for them
The guide has three main sections: word, sentence (including punctuation) and text. Each section has an introductory page which can be enlarged to create an explanatory poster for display purposes. At the end, there is a glossary explaining the terminology used in the book, as well as an answer section.
