Abstract

This project examined the effect of the teaching of grammar upon pupils’
independent writing. The writing of two year 1 children was scrutinised through
the introduction of independent writing journals and a child conference. The
research found an inconsistency between the use of grammar in teacher led
activities and the use of grammar in writing journals. Furthermore, it was
evident that the standard of writing changed between writing in English books
and the writing in writing journals. The research concludes by highlighting the
importance of cross-curricular writing and the limitations of this study.
