Literacy Inset – Grammar & Punctuation at KS1 with Anne Harvey

This Literacy workshop is provided by Anne Harvey from the highly acclaimed Somerset Literacy Network.


This course is aimed at teachers and teaching assistants who would like to strengthen their knowledge of English grammar and use this to support their teaching of speaking and listening, reading and writing in Key Stage One. Links will be made to ‘Curriculum 2014’.


‘The grammar of our first language is learnt naturally and implicitly through interactions with other speakers and from reading. Explicit knowledge of grammar is, however, very important, as it gives us more conscious control and choice in our language.’   2014 National Curriculum Appendix 2


This half day will explore with delegates:


  • the expectations of the 2014 National Curriculum
  • subject knowledge matched to the terminology to be used
  • an approach to the teaching of grammar set within the whole English curriculum and, indeed, all learning in the KS1 classroom


Please will delegates bring with them:

  • samples of writing for two pupils
  • three texts (fiction or non-fiction) that they have recently used in their teaching
