Our 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 areas of grammar, punctuation and spelling covered in this SPaG grammar blaster is word families.
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 worksheets: word families
