Webinar with Jennifer Wozniak: Grammar is Fun!

May 4th 2020

Watch the video here, and scroll down for more information.

Helen is hosting the video on her YouTube account while we sort out technical issues on the ALL London account.

Grammar is key with the new GCSE and therefore it is important that our pupils master it. This seminar will present a lot of different engaging, interesting, up-to-date strategies to make all your students enjoy learning grammar. Jennifer will offer practical ideas for teaching grammar in a fun way and still preparing students to achieve their best with confidence. Ideas and activities presented can very easily be adapted for every language and can be used straight away back in the classroom.

Jennifer Wozniak, Assistant Headteacher for Teaching and Learning and Specialist Leader of Education in T&L and MFL at The Hollins in Lancashire has a wide experience of teaching French from KS1 to KS4. She has been involved in school-to -school support. Jennifer has a real passion for teaching languages as we have had the pleasure of witnessed when she has presented at ALL national and ALL London events.

The Class of May 4th 2020!

01:17:30 María Victoria: I didn’t, I wanted to
01:18:00 Alkelda McClelland: I did it once but it can be dangerous ha ha ha. We haven’t done it since !!
01:18:07 Laila El-Kheshen: maybe they would let you use the ones that are like harribo sweets instead of real grapes? less dangeroous
01:18:11 Laila El-Kheshen: but not as healthy
01:18:16 María Victoria: quite dangerous, yes 🙁
01:18:16 ALL London: Three cheers for Jennifer’s husband!!!

01:19:00 Laila El-Kheshen: at least they used to hah
01:19:02 María Victoria: nice to know!!
01:19:02 ALL London: Mrs Flint – your comnments get better an dbetter!!
01:20:15 Uxía Iglesias Fuertes: Really? Sweets with the shape of grapes? Hahaha, that’s hilarious
