Project Description

Please find below grammar resources including all the sorting activities that weren’t included in Jumpstart Grammar for lack of space. Looking at the exemplar grammar tests for 2016, it is obvious that they are going to become increasingly difficult with more emphasis on the naming of obscure parts, for example the past progressive. Pie and Julia will keep an eye out and add additional resources to this page to provide fun activities for any of the additional terms if they haven’t already been well covered by Jumpstart! Grammar.

3. Matching activities are much more fun and more effective than grammar exercises because they involve the pupils in discussing the best fit. This document contains examples of matching grammar activities to embed understanding once classes have been taught the features referred to.
