All the pupils and staff were highly entertained on Tuesday with an amazing punctuation and grammar show. Barrie McDermid, a qualified English teacher, now teaches English (punctuation and grammar) through a fantastic, fun filled show. He cleverly explained the use of punctuation such as ellipsis, semicolons, brackets and speech marks by using cartoon stories, songs and actions. During the afternoon, we then learnt about main clauses, subordinate clauses and apostrophes among others. By getting all the children (and staff!) clapping and joining in, everybody has hopefully learnt more about punctuation and grammar which we will now see in their writing!
