“Antony CE School had a fantastic grammar session tonight! It was informative, interactive and up to date. We would 100% recommend working with Dandelion Learning.”  Jo Pearton, Assistant Headteacher Antony CE School

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 grammar subject knowledge is essential for primary teaching. Yet many teachers, including English specialists, have never been taught grammar in their own education. This presents a challenge for school leaders – ensuring ‘expert knowledge’ as well as consistency in the use of terminology across the school. 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, analysing grammatical features within texts and during Shared Writing.
  • Ideas for resources to support subject knowledge and classroom teaching.
