Grammar Matters: Worksheets and Assessment is a photocopiable dip-in resource which is matched to the core teaching objectives of the new English curriculum at Years 5-7. It enables a class or support teacher to profile each pupil's language awareness and skills, and to pinpoint individual learning needs. Photocopiable, targeted worksheets use age-appropriate, boy-friendly vocabulary and contexts to focus on the language knowledge and skills expected of all pupils, while follow-up tests help to ensure that new learning is secure. How Grammar Matters works: ? A Teaching & Learning Matrix serves as a visual profile on which to map what each pupil can do - and then target the knowledge and skills the pupil has still to master, match teaching material to the pupil's immediate learning needs, and record progress. ? 70 worksheets provide clear explanation, examples and exercises with answers focused on the key aspects of grammar and word families, punctuation and the skills which make for more varied and effective writing. ? 30 test sheets with answers assess the pupil's application of the language knowledge and skills covered by individual worksheets, to ensure that they have been assimilated. This flexible resource meets a wide variety of teaching needs, including homework, revision and practising insecure skills, with a systematic approach that ensures manageability, effective planning and progression.
