Explore how to teach grammar in a way which is meaningful and encourages a love of books. Using beautiful, high quality texts, this workshop contextualises how you can teach the grammar of the national curriculum with real teaching applications. You will engage in a range of playful and practical approaches that can be embedded in future planning and which encourage children to apply their skills in writing. The teaching of grammar is about more than learning terms and preparing children for a test; it is about giving children control over their writing so they can communicate in the most effectively.
Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
