Course overview

The Grammarsaurus Promise: This is not one of those courses where you sit and listen for hours. Each workshop has practical activities for you to take away and use the next day! Make sure your pencil is sharpened!


9:00 – 9:15 – Arrival, registration and refreshments.

Tea and coffee.


9:15 – 10:15 – The Place Value of Grammar

Teachers can spend hours of unnecessary time focusing on areas of grammar, which have already been covered, whilst huge gaps remain uncovered. But where should you start? Can there be a whole-school approach to fix this? The Place Value of Grammar does this.


10:15 – 10:45 – Why so tense?

Bonnie Tyler, One Direction and the cast of Pitch Perfect can all work collectively to alleviate your tension. Discover how the use of song and rhyme can have your pupils recognising the difference between the past progressive, present progressive, past simple, present simple, past perfect, present perfect and future tenses.


10:45 - 11:00 – Coffee break

Tea, coffee and snacks available.


11:00 – 12:30 – Meeting Writing and SPaG ARE expectations in KS1

What’s a subordinating conjunction? Which co-ordinating conjunction can we use here? How can I make all of this memorable and enjoyable for 6 and 7 year olds?

The expectations for KS1 are higher than ever. In this hands-on workshop, you’ll not only have a blast improving your own understanding of grammar, but you’ll have a wide range of engaging activities to deliver the very next day!


12:30 – 13:15 – Lunch break


13:15 – 14:30 – Meeting Writing and SPaG ARE expectations in KS2

How do I use the subjunctive form? What’s the difference between a preposition and a subordinating conjunction? Where should my comma go?

The expectations for KS2 are higher than ever. In this hands-on workshop, you’ll not only have a blast improving your own understanding of grammar, but you’ll have a wide range of engaging activities to deliver the very next day!


14:30 – 14:45 – Coffee break


14:45 – 15:30 – Support, challenge and quality feedback.

How can I support my lower ability pupils to understand this? How can I challenge all pupils to meet this expectation?

This final workshop aims to provide you with a variety of approaches to support and challenge all pupils make good or better progress in writing, punctuation and grammar by looking at a range of differentiation techniques.
