SPaG - A Great Grammar Game for Year 6

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.

If you and your children enjoy this resource we would very much appreciate you leaving us a review. Many thanks.
