My dc is in year 3 and is struggling with grammar and punctuation. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a website for teaching / improving literacy skills. I've heard of a site called Education City but don't know if it's any good.

Education City is well thought of yes. BBC site is also pretty good -

Also - worth checking that she does understand each term. So, what IS a sentence? A word? A noun, verb etc? Often this causes a problem as the child can't understand the explanation properly. And what is the point of punctuation at all?

Hope that helps!

That's very helpful. Will have a better look at EC.

Hi Myinboxisfull:

St. Ambrose Primary has really useful exercises practicing grammar rules in relation to spelling here:

start with Year 3 and work your way through as and when appropriate.

I'd also heartily recommend CGP literacy workbooks (done by year and available most large bookstores/ amazon). They're funny and usefully work through grammar rules. We do maybe a page or two a week - usually when waiting for one DD or the other to finish a lesson/ after school club - these also help hugely with spelling rules.

Thanks for those suggestions. I've heard of the CGP books and will have a look at those too.
