Teach children how to use grammatical structures effectively and accurately in their writing. Using carefully selected ‘authentic’ text types that feature specific grammatical features consistently, these resources will help pupils to explore and recognise where and when grammar is used to effectively communicate a text with its intended audience.

Each unit focuses on a grammatical feature and begins with a high-quality example text. Through reading the text with pupils, the purpose (e.g. whether it is written to explain, instruct, argue etc.) and its audience (e.g. parents, children, people interested in a specific topic etc.) can be established.

The unit then focusses on identifying one or more of the grammatical features that support the purpose and audience of the text. Using creative activities, each unit then provides opportunities to build confidence with the grammatical features.

Finally, through modelled and demonstration writing, the resource offers scaffolded writing opportunities for pupils to write their own texts using the grammatical feature.
