Y1 Grammar Punctuation and Spelling

Using Capital Letters and Full Stops Lesson

This Using Capital Letters and Full Stops lesson covers the prior learning of applying phonics sounds to label birthday related words, before moving onto the main skill of using capital letters and full stops.

The lesson starts with a prior learning activity to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning with engaging reasoning and application tasks.
