Making SPaG fun!
Over to the teachers…
Anchor Creative Education have transformed my teaching of grammar. The sessions are fun, informative and the songs help the children to remember that tricky meta language… you’ll find yourself singing songs like: an adjective is a describing word...(yeah!) on your drive home from work.
Our day with Anchor Creative Education was amazing! We had been using their songs prior to his visit, as part of our SPaG lessons, and the children were so excited! The songs are a fantastic way to learn all about Spelling and Grammar..beats a boring worksheet any day!Anchor’s drama sessions were fun and exciting - an active way to learn about grammar.As one child in my class said, “Anchor makes SPaG fabulous!” We will definitely be inviting them back soon!
The Children are very engaged throughout the Anchor sessions as there are a range of activities that allow ALL children to participate. Our children make clear progress within the sessions; they are a great way to incorporate learning and performing arts.The objective taught and learnt is clearly applied in the following lesson by the children, whilst the songs allow the children to retain information further down the line.
Amazing! Really engaging for the children; the Anchor sessions equip them to apply knowledge into their own writing. The children are much braver when using SPaG skills I frequently use the Anchor songs to remind children of specific SPaG skills (even humming the tune can be enough)!
Anchor sessions are fun, creative and engaging for all children in the class. Our children love the sessions and make lots of progress within them. The pupils are constantly being challenged in a fun way. The sessions also help staff build on their own subject knowledge. The children understand hard grammar concepts a lot easier once they have been taught them in an Anchor session. Before, the children would find it difficult to understand concepts and would dislike being taught grammar. Now, they find SPaG interesting and enjoy being taught it. The songs are a great way to help children remember specific word ans sentence types.
Anchor Creative Education is a breath of fresh air into the literacy curriculum, engaging and enthralling children from the beginning of sessions to the end. Children (and teachers!) often find themselves singing the Anchor literacy songs in other lessons and in the playground. These sessions teach children life-long knowledge and skills, without them even realising it!
