Fixing Capital Letters and Full Stops in Years 3 and 4 – Session 1 of 2

Thursday, March 17, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

The National Curriculum for Year 3 and 4 demands that pupils move on swiftly from simple sentence construction to the mastery of sophisticated structures. This can only be achieved if pupils enter the key stage with a strong understanding of what constitutes a sentence.

Many pupils enter KS2 with weak subject knowledge in this area, demonstrated by their inaccurate use of full stops.

Attendees on this two-part course will receive:

  • A subject knowledge development session.
  • A focused English Plan modelling how techniques designed to improve sentence structure can be incorporated into a unit of work.
  • The opportunity to consider how the techniques have worked for their pupils and how they can be adapted further to develop pupils’ skills in this area.

Audience: Teachers, Teaching Assistants


  • To gain a better understanding of the expectations regarding sentence structure for Years 3 and 4, and preceding year groups.
  • Be equipped with a range of tried and tested techniques for improving pupils’ ability to understand the concept of a sentence and correctly demarcate sentences.


  • Improved subject knowledge.
  • Improved trajectory towards working at the expected standard in writing for pupils who present issues with sentence demarcation.

Session 2: Tuesday 17 May 2022, 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Recordings of the sessions and resources will be available for your use in school.

The cost is per person.
