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
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!
