Y5 Grammar Punctuation and Spelling

Using Devices to Build Cohesion Lesson

This lesson covers the prior learning of pronouns, adverbials, parenthesis and noun phrases before moving onto the main skill of using devices to build cohesion.

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. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning with engaging reasoning and application tasks.
