Read some of our fantastic testimonials:
"Never has grammar been so accessible or simple. A lifetime's education crammed into a day. I feel equipped and keen to be a grammar Jedi! Thank you!"
"A fantastic course! I had a great day singing about regular verbs to Bonnie Tyler and got scissor happy with some hands on activities for clauses, verb tenses and much more! Grammar can actually be fun! I highly recommend attending a Grammarsaurus course. Well worth it. However, you will be singing, "REGULAAAARRR!" for a long time afterwards... :)"
"The conference was informative and engaging. I loved the fact that it was practical; it gave us so many ideas to take back to the classroom. I would definitely recommend attending future events."
"Amazing training from Grammarsaurus at St Luke's tonight - exciting and practical ideas to use in the classroom. In fact it was so good that we have booked another session! Thanks Mitch :)"
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 – 9:45 – 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.
9:45 – 10:30 – 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.
