Below you will find explanations for some of the grammatical terms that the children are expected to know and use. Most of these terms will be used alongside their writing to develop their understanding of language and how authors create effects. The children will also encounter these words as part of the grammar test in their SATs.
Key Stage 2 Teacher Assessment Framework
When the new National Curriculum was introduced, the expected standards for each year group was raised. This means that each year the expectations for the children reaching the end of a key stage will rise year on year. At the end of each key stage your child's class teacher will use the Teacher Assessment Framework (TAFs) to assess each child. Whereas in the past your child would need to have met most of the criteria, your child will now have to have meet each of the statements to be assessed as having met the expected standard.
In Year 6, the children will also sit their SATs, in Reading; Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar; and Maths with their writing being assessed over the year.
