Grammar is to be tested by recycling grammar items learnt over a period of time in a comprehensive manner. Teachers may adapt this suggested distribution for classroom teaching, making modifications according to their specific needs.

Note:

  1. Schools may adapt the given break-up as per their convenience.
  1. Activities such as Language games, quizzes, projects, role plays, dramatization, script writing etc must be done as ‘in class’ and ‘in school’ activities. In case, a field survey or visit is taken up, it must be under the direct supervision of the teacher.
