Grammar in Secondary English

Summary

Teacher Liana Swanton takes the fear out of grammar by breaking it down in a simple way that's fun for pupils.

Embedding subordinate clauses in sentences using a simple red and green card method gets students out of their seats and actively building sentences.

Comma practice involves displaying rules of commas around the classroom and getting pupils to write their own examples.

Meanwhile, Liana from Uplands Community Technology College in East Sussex, uses innovative cards to encourage her pupils to make sentences and conversations with more sophisticated connective words.
