1 | Tricky grammar worksheets – Determiners

This KS2 grammar teaching sequence for determiners has been designed to help Year 6 children revisit and remember a key grammatical concept from the National Curriculum programme of study.

Based around a venomous snake, the session provides a motivating and memorable image to stimulate discussion, before introducing the grammar element.

Children have time to practise using this feature, before undertaking a short writing task to apply what they have learnt in the context of creative writing.

Both teacher notes and a pupil worksheet are included.
