This collection of simple to use, multi-sensory games and activities will jumpstart pupils’ understanding of grammar in action. If you are one of the thousands of teachers who feels insecure about how to teach grammar engagingly, and perhaps also lack confidence in your own grammatical knowledge, then this is also the perfect book for you. Fun games will focus first on helping children hear the difference various types of grammar can make followed by activities to help them understand what different effects you can create with grammar, rather than dwelling on arid naming of parts. Technical terms will only be introduced once the children have established what the various features can do, with a particular focus on those terms that really help children discuss what makes language coherent and effective. By the time the children are asked to use the terminology, they will have a real grasp of what it’s good for. It will prepare children for any grammar tests on the horizon in an engaging way so that they love playing with words and spinning sentences to make ideas dance. And, of course, they will be able to name the parts if that is what is required. Jumpstart Grammar will celebrate the joys of language, and coherent expression; of finding just the right words or phrases to express what you want to say.

Children's achievements in writing lag behind their achievements in reading, speaking and listening. National tests are beginning to expose this gap and inevitably, it is raising concerns. The issue is not without controversy but regardless of the politics of the situation, national progress in children's writing is both needed and possible. This new book from Eve Bearne makes a valuable contribution towards helping teachers close this gap. Uniquely, it follows the structure of the National Literacy Strategy, whilst examining key areas such as bridging KS2 and KS3 writing, and writing skills beyond the Literacy Hour. Such a structure makes the book incredibly practical and easy to use, providing essential information for both practitioners and academics.
