SPaG - A Great Grammar Game for Year 5

(0)
In this engrossing and creative game players meet – or possibly re-meet - Hetti, a smart and friendly alien living on the far off planet of SPaG. The game is wholly about teaching, rather than testing the Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar demands for Y5 children as set out in the most recent National Curriculum for English. The PowerPoint lesson leads the children, step by step, through the game. It also includes an embedded video introducing the children to Hetti. The Teachers’ Notes give more instructions for playing the game and suggested follow up activities. The precise elements the game covers are: relative clauses relative pronouns modal verbs adverbs suggesting degrees of possibility. 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 money raised from the sale of this resource is going to a children’s charity called MedEquip4Kids.

They also have a number of suggestions for further activities. There is a document with the text of the poem plus another where Humpty Dumpty explains the first verse of the poem to Alice.
