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!
