What is SPAG? SPaG is an abbreviation for spelling, punctuation and grammar. Children have always been taught how to use punctuation and how to spell. However, with the implementation of the new primary curriculum, children are now expected to learn grammar to a fairly high level. In order for your child to reach the required level of knowledge, we teach SPaG through English lessons in school. See here for a superb resource for parents. It covers every year group’s SPaG targets. Explains them in easy to understand terms too. It also includes a glossary of SPaG terms for primary school.
