English (including Grammar)
- In English, we have been learning several different types of grammatical sentence types by a literacy specialist called Alan Peat. These can be found on handy posters which you can print out and use to help your child compose more complex sentences. Also, they will be beneficial for learning terms for their spelling and grammar SATs.
