This training is aimed at all primary teachers, TAs and English leaders.

The Ofsted School Inspection Handbook states: ‘ Teachers have expert knowledge of the subjects that they teach. If they do not, they are supported to address gaps in their knowledge so that pupils are not disadvantaged by ineffective teaching.’

Confidence in grammatical subject knowledge is essential for primary teaching. Yet many teachers, including English specialists, have never been taught grammar in their own education. If you feel a lack of confidence in grammar, you are not alone! This session is designed to support teachers and TAs to ensure an excellent understanding of grammar in the Primary National Curriculum.

Teachers and TAs will leave this session with:
  • Confidence in Word Classification.
  • A deep understanding of phrases, clauses and sentence construction (including multi-clause sentences).
  • Confidence in the use of terminology when explaining grammar to children, when analysing texts and during Shared Writing.
  • Ideas for resources to support subject knowledge and classroom teaching.
