STOP! GRAMMAR POLICE!
As a school we have re-launched the GRAMMAR POLICE!! It is really important that all children and adults speak in grammatically correct sentences, and at Whingate we want to make sure that this is the case! Each week the whole school will look at a new focus, time will be given in class for children to work on this and stickers will be awarded to those who are seen to be working hard to improve their own grammar.
To promote the importance of good grammar we held a sticker competition! The winners of which would have their designs made into stickers that would be used by staff to award children for working hard on their grammar. The entries were phenomenal!! A winner for each phase was chosen.
Foundation Stage - Finley
Key Stage 1 - Lola
Lower Key Stage 2 - Holly
Upper Key Stage 2 - Patryk
Take a look at the winning designs below:
MEET THE GRAMMAR SQUAD
To help us on our mission we have hired the GRAMMAR SQUAD! Protecting Whingate from poor grammar!
The Grammar Squad include:
Patryk, Jayson, Jaeda and Freya from Year 6
Grace, Honey, Jessica and Victoria from Year 5
Focus for this fortnight:
To say and write "have to" and "had to" correctly.
When we are explaining things we must do, we
often use the term 'have to'.
I have to brush my teeth everyday.
.I hafto brush my teeth everyday.
In the past tense 'have to' changes to 'had to'.
I had to run to catch the bus.
