Year 7 grammar programme (Terms 1+2)

We teach grammar in both a contextualised and decontextualised way (the best of both worlds in my opinion).  We have one lesson a fortnight dedicated to grammar teaching and follow Daisy Christodoulou’s suggested programme.  You can find this here: http://www.learningspy.co.uk/english-gcse/principled-curriculum-design-teach-english/ (Slide 12).

Below is the grammar workbook I have produced for year 7 covering: The parts of speech: verbs, nouns, articles, adjectives, prepositions.  Subject-verb agreement and tense.  Aside from tense, the supporting texts have been chosen to fit in with our units in Term 1: Language Through Time and in Term 2: An Introduction to Poetry.  Therefore, this may need some adaptation to make relevant for the units you are going to teach.  These lessons will take students all the way through terms 1 and 2 (or until Christmas).

I will producing flipcharts but at the moment I need to try and get Year 8 and Year 9 done.
