'G Squadron' Grammar Workbook

(1)
The ‘G Squadron’ Workbook (124 pages) has been designed to support and develop pupils’ use and understanding of grammar, in accordance with the new Key Stage 2 and 3 UK National Curriculums. The workbook was initially part of a peer-tutoring writing programme I developed and is best used collaboratively, for example, the ‘Answers’ section contains extension questions, which are intended to prompt discussion between students and extend learning. I have uploaded a Word and PDF version of the workbook, together with the separate chapters (for previewing purposes), but essentially it is all one, single, 124 page workbook.
