Course Objectives

Fast Forward Grammar has been extensively rewritten in order to prepare pupils for the higher expectations in the 2014 National Curriculum and to support them to achieve successfully in the test at the end of Year 6. Fast Forward Grammar 2 replaces the original Fast Forward Grammar programme. This course has been designed to outline the new programme which is to support children with gaps in learning. It focuses on:
• the structure of a sentence
• word classes
• grammatical terminology.

Fast Forward Grammar 2 is a 14 week intervention programme which is designed to be delivered to a group of pupils from Year 5 or Year 6. Feedback from Y6 teachers has indicated however, that individual lesson plans within the programme have also supported whole class quality teaching.
The half day training course will include:
• introduction to the programme
• grammatical terminology and subject knowledge
• the structure of Fast Forward Grammar 2
• games and activities to support learning and application of grammar
• how Fast Forward Grammar 2 can be organised in school.

The 14 week programme consists of 3 twenty minute sessions each week. Comprehensive lesson plans for all 42 sessions are included and a brief assessment opportunity is included at the end of each week.

Ideally, the course should be attended by the class teacher and the person who will be delivering the programme.
The cost of the course does not include a copy of the Fast Forward Grammar resource, although this can be purchased on the day for £60 (which will be added to the final charge to the school). Places can be booked without the need to purchase the programme. You can purchase the programme on the website below:

If schools already own a copy of the programme, they are advised to bring the resource along to the course.
