If you are a Year 6 teacher, we urge you to have a look at our new Harry Potter revision unit. We love it, and we think you will too! Use the whole scheme or just select the 5-minute grammar PowerPoints to practice for SPAG on SATs. Either way, you can inspire your children this term, at the same time as revising.
