These are the ultimate all-in-one guides for teaching writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar in the primary classroom. Providing practical advice on teaching grammar and writing techniques through the use of non-fiction texts, each Grammarsaurus book is closely aligned to the National Curriculum and ensures teachers are addressing the right topics at the right time.

Each chapter focuses on a non-fiction text type: instructions, explanations, non-chronological reports, diary entries, newspaper reports and persuasive texts. There are photocopiable model texts for each year group, along with annotated versions guiding teachers through language features, grammar, spelling and punctuation opportunities, saving hours of lesson planning.

Mitch Hudson and Anna Richards, expert teachers and creators of the popular Grammarsaurus website, answer common questions from teachers: ‘When should I teach this punctuation mark?’, or ‘Which spellings should I be teaching my Year 2 class?’. With examples covering a range of topics and up-to-date content using the latest curriculum framework, teachers can feel confident in tackling writing and SPaG across all the key areas of non-fiction.
