PC V Panda

This blog is short and sweet.

This year, I've been given the role of SPAG coordinator as part of the English team. A huge part of the new English curriculum is grammar, and a huge part of that involves children knowing the word classes of the English language.

In KS2, children must know of all eight word classes, and I've come up with a quick acronym to remember these: 

PC V PANDA
Pronoun
Conjunction
Verb
Preposition
Adverb
Noun
Determiner
Adjective

I even whipped up a quick cartoon on Paint go alongside it - a panda in a policeman's hat with the name label "V" (as his name is Police Constable V Panda, of course). 

My Year 5s have responded well to this and now, since introducing him (or her?) almost a week ago, most of them can remember all eight without sneakily looking at my grammar wall!

  3. Outside of protected areas, habitat loss is also still an ongoing issue in addition to illegal poaching. To try and save them from further future uncertainty, by 2005, more than 50 panda reserves (which protects 2.5 million acres and more than 60% of the panda population) were created by the Chinese government. panda products
