Where was this book when I changed year groups? The Paramours have written a superb book, complete with examples, explanations and activities to cover grammar for both Key Stage 1 and 2. It has helpful justifications on certain rules and handily highlights the grey areas of grammar (which that one child in your class will always point out). Certain sections refamiliarised me with the areas I teach, while others gave me ideas for tasks I can do to teach this essential, yet often stealth, aspect of our reading and writing.

The Grammar Book is a must-read for every teacher. It clearly outlines the essential understanding relating to each aspect of grammar progression across Key Stages 1 and 2, then gives amazing ideas and activities to teach each aspect in the classroom. An in-depth knowledge of grammar and its applications across the curriculum is crucial for any teacher to support the challenges of the modern curriculum effectively.

This is a fantastic book for primary teachers, or student teachers, who want to develop their own understanding of grammar, as well as providing fantastic and fun exercises for young people to develop their skills.

It is a very user-friendly book and one I suspect I will regularly be dipping into. As teachers, you want reliable resources, easily available, which this certainly delivers. It is clear the book was written by teachers for teachers and is all the better for it.
