This absorbing and creative grammar and punctuation game is wholly about teaching, rather than testing the SPaG demands for Y6 children
The precise elements the game covers in this PowerPoint lesson are:
- synonyms and antonyms
- use of the passive form of verbs.
In playing this version of the Great Grammar Game, children will also be revisiting and revising their SPaG knowledge from previous years. Like all other versions of the game it can be played more than once, either in small groups of 5 or more, or by a whole class.
The National Curriculum insists that building grammatical knowledge is best achieved through a focus on grammar within the teaching of reading, writing and speaking. This is exactly how this activity is designed to work.
The resource includes:
- A PowerPoint lesson outlining to the children how the game is played. It also includes an embedded message from Hetti from planet SPaG.
- Teachers’ notes with ideas on how to play the game and suggestions for follow up activities.
- A photocopiable 5x4 grid for the children to use.
All the money made from the sale of this resource goes to a local children’s charity - MedEquip4Kids.

SPaG Grammar Games
In these stimulating and creative games players meet Hetti, a smart and friendly alien living on the far off planet of SPaG. The games are wholly about teaching, rather than testing the Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar demands as set out in the most recent National Curriculum for English. The National Curriculum insists that building grammatical knowledge is best achieved through a focus on grammar within the teaching of reading, writing and speaking. This is exactly how these activities are designed to work. All the money raised from the sale of these resources goes to a local charity for children called MedEquip4Kids.

I used this lesson for an observation with a Y6 class and I got the job! The pupils absolutely loved it and learnt how to construct sentences using the passive voice without even realising it. I created extra resources to support LA students, word banks and introduced 'editing' as a plenary. A really fantastic resource. I'll be back for more I'm sure - thank you :)
Many thanks for your great comments and congratulations on getting the job!<br /> We look forward to more of your reviews on our other resources.
A great game which the class loved!
