SPaG - A Great Grammar Game for Year 2

SPaG - A Great Grammar Game for Year 2

(0)
In this entertaining 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 Y2 children as set out in the most recent National Curriculum for English. The PowerPoint presentation 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: subordination expanded noun phrases the progressive form of verbs commas to separate items in a list apostrophes to mark letters missing in spelling. The game also revisits much of the punctuation demands and the terminology introduced in Y1. It can be played more than once, either by 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 will be going to a children’s charity called MedEquip4Kids.

In this STEAM project these three PowerPoint lessons will take you through a series of intriguing processes enabling your children to create some amazing pieces of art - both drawings and sculptures. To create this 3-dimensional drawing, you will need just a few simple materials - three sticks, three elastic bands, white masking tape, and a bundle of ‘centre cane’. Project 1 takes the children through the simple process of creating their initial sculpture. Project 2 uses that sculpture as a template to create some unique drawings. Project 3 has ideas for combining the two to make further amazing sculptures. In terms of the NC Art & Design this project will: - improve mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials (KS2) - increase proficiency in the handling of different materials (KS3) The Teacher’s Notes give further ideas and advice as to the best materials to use.
