About this course

Grammar can be a ‘dry’ area of the curriculum, and punctuation is often the least exciting part of it. It’s hard to engage children about dots and squiggles, and even harder to stop those squiggles draining the life and soul out of their writing. After our popular Creative Grammar webinar, we now bring you a second hour of methods and ideas to engage and inspire.

This 1-hour on-demand course will leave you energised and excited about the teaching of punctuation.

  • Quick take-aways that you can put into practice straight away
  • Ways to improve ‘procedural fluency’ but also ‘conceptual understanding’, so that punctuation becomes an enhancement and not just a necessity
  • Common misconceptions that might stop your children reaching ARE and GDS



This course is appropriate for primary and special schools.

  • teachers (KS1-2)
  • teaching assistants
  • English and curriculum leads
