Deep Dive

In line with both the Common Core Standards (US) and the National Curriculum (UK), children are expected to develop a mastery of grammar that will help them become proficient in their use of written and oral language.

Mastery of grammar requires an understanding of concepts such as the different parts of speech (e.g. noun, verb, adjective), the different tenses of verbs (e.g. play-played, go-went), the plural of nouns (e.g. pen-pens, box-boxes, man-men), the syntax of simple and complex sentences and questions, and the correct use of punctuation.
