Those of you who have looked at the 2016 sample test paper will know that, unfortunately, the naming of parts (and some of them very obscure) is gaining ground and additional terminology has been added. To help teachers confidently rise to this challenge while integrating the grammar into model texts and engaging the children, we have provided a free training PowerPoint plus related resources. This PowerPoint supplements Jumpstart! Grammar which, if you haven’t purchased already, we suggest you buy here.
Before using this resource for training all staff, we suggest that you try out the ideas with a small group of staff so you can build up your confidence and understanding of some of the trickier aspects.
Please be aware that this is large PowerPoint file containing 57 slides. It may therefore take some time to download.
