Do your pupils need to revisit grammar skills regularly?

Word: prefix super-
Text: past tense (revisit year 2)
Punctuation: commas in a list (revisit year 2)

How could you use Grammar Slam?
Perfect for starters to English lessons to teach or revisit skills previously taught or display on the board at the beginning of the day during registration, or at any point where there is 5 minutes to fill, to make productive use of learning time.
This could also be used by pupils in higher year groups to revise key terminology and skills taught in previous years.
