Plazoom’s Year 6 SPaG Revision Blaster packs are the perfect way to check children’s knowledge and understanding of the KS2 programme of study for English. The area of grammar, punctuation and spelling covered in this SPaG grammar blaster is capital letters and full stops.
The packs are based around the content domains of the Key Stage 2 grammar, punctuation and spelling test framework. ‘Let’s Recap!’ provides information to revise or reteach an area of grammar, punctuation or spelling covered in Paper 1 of the GPS test followed by ‘Let’s Practise!’ with SATs style questions for the pupils to complete independently or as a class. Three sheets are provided, Revision Blaster 1, 2 and 3. These increase in difficulty, with questions having a greater cognitive load on Revision Blaster 3.
A PowerPoint version of the pack is included, so it can be worked through in groups, or as a whole class.
This primary resource pack includes:
- Let’s Recap PDF and PPT slides
- Let’s Practise worksheet: capital letters and full stops
- Let’s Practise answers
- Let’s Recap PDF sheet
Why do we use capital letters and full stops?
Capital letters and full stops are used to mark the beginning and end of a sentence. A sentence is a group of words that is complete and makes sense. A sentence can be a main clause on its own (often called a simple sentence) or two or more clauses can be combined to make multiclause sentences. A capital letter is used to mark the beginning of a sentence and a full stop is used at the end to show that it is complete.
Capital letters are also used for proper nouns including the days of the week and months of the year, and for the personal pronoun ‘I’.
