SPaG - A Great Grammar Game for Year 3

(0)
This resource contains: - a powerpoint presentation explaining the game in detail and including a video clip message from Hetti - teachers’ notes explaining how to play the game and giving links to the National Curriculum - a 5x4 grid to photocopy for the children In this enjoyable 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 Y3 children as set out in the most recent National Curriculum for English. The precise elements the game covers are: forming nouns using prefixes choosing a or an before the next word expressing time using conjunctions. 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. Money raised from the sale of this resource goes to a children’s charity called MedEquip4Kids.

In the PowerPoint presentation the children are introduced to an alien creature called Bernard. Bernard explains what a compound noun is and then shows them how they can create teasing riddles. The answer to each riddle is always a compound noun. Look out for the resource ‘Compound Nouns – Riddle-Poems’ where you will meet Bernard’s alien sister, Bernice.
