Coleshill C of E Primary School

Inspiring our children to flourish and enjoy 'Life in all its fullness' (John 10:10)


At Coleshill our mission is to see children inspired by the wonderful world of literacy and in time become writers that reflect their passions. Children will be able to apply their skills purposefully when writing in a range of genres, understanding who their audience is and how to communicate with their audience.

Spelling, punctuation and grammar

Punctuation and grammar

Focused Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar sessions are delivered in a decontextualised and discreet lesson. This is a tremendously useful way of getting pupils to master the fundamentals which are then embedded across the curriculum. Teachers expect pupils to apply the grammatical knowledge they’ve acquired within the naturally occurring contexts of their subjects.
See below for some examples of what core knowledge and skills your child will acquire during these sessions:

English national curriculum

We use the National Curriculum to guide progression in skills over time so that when our children leave us in Year 6, they are ready for the next step in their education at secondary school.
