Grammar is best taught as part of learning to read and to write. Through practical, group based exercises, this workshop focuses on how to teach pupils the ways in which verbs or processes represent experiences in fiction and contribute to the representation of character. This workshop links directly to the requirements of the Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG) test at key Stage 2.
