Worksheet Overview

When you are writing, it is vital that your grammar is correct. 


Although it can seem a little daunting to think about every grammatical rule in your head - lots of it comes naturally as we learn most of it when we are speaking.

It is because we learn to speak before we learn to write that mistakes can happen in our writing. 


This is because we might have heard someone using something incorrectly, or just because we say things differently to how we write.


In this activity, we will look at some common grammatical errors, correct them, and apply the correct terms to our writing. 


So, if you are ready, let's get started!
