This session considered the grammar knowledge students develop at KS2 within both the English and foreign language curriculums and its role in supporting language learning at KS3. It considered the role of metalanguage and terminology we can build on from KS2; discussed the benefits of developing learners' knowledge about language; and, explored the role of language analysis and cross-linguistic comparisons in language learning.
