Englicious is a free online library of hundreds of resources created to support the teaching and learning of English language, especially grammar, from KS1 to KS5.
The resources provide a mix of short starter activities, full lesson plans and projects for older students, as well as assessment material and revision activities for Year 2 and Year 6 SPaG tests.
An easy-to-use filtering system allows teachers to search for relevant resources quickly and easily and there is also a comprehensive glossary of grammatical terms that includes and expands on all the terms contained in the National Curriculum glossary.
All the teaching resources can be projected onto an interactive whiteboard and include games and hands-on elements to make learning English grammar fun and engaging. The dynamic resources constantly refresh with new examples allowing pupils to practise new skills as many times as they need to.
Cost: Free with registration.
