Written by headteacher and best-selling writer Ali Dakin, SPaG Gold is ideal for helping children prepare for the Key Stage 2 government tests in English grammar, punctuation and spelling.
This resource maps to the National Curriculum for Key Stage 2, including Year 6, and lower KS3, but may also help older children to consolidate their learning.
For Key Stage 1, see SPaG Bronze.
For Years 3, 4 and 5 only, see SPaG Silver.
SPaG Gold covers grammar, sentences, prefixes and suffixes, spelling and punctuation with lessons and quizzes for each topic, as well as over 250 audio spelling questions and over 40 activities.
SPaG Gold uses nimbl technology to save your notes, activity answers and quiz scores. Quizzes are self-marking for instant feedback, and can be retaken multiple times so your child can improve their scores.
Once you've downloaded the app, you can access all content including audio offline, giving your child the freedom to learn on the go, any time, anywhere.

St Laurence Catholic Primary School in Cambridge has been test-driving our nimbl app with great success. Pupils used English, Maths and SPaG to help support their work for the Year 6 SATs and complement traditional teaching.
"I have found nimbl very effective at motivating children to revise for their SATs."
Eimear OMeara, Year 6 teacher at St Laurence
