Improving Pupils' Punctuation and Grammar

Quite simply, in a world driven by targets and data, we're in the business of making literacy a bit more fun. Communication is the key to success in the modern world and literacy is the key to communication.

How do we do it?

Do you remember events you've attended? Gigs? Shows? Performances? Well, that's what we do. We put on an amazing show that uses song, dance, and humour to help people remember key literacy skills.

Is it for you?

Whether it's punctuation, grammar or GCSE English, we can make it fun. Your pupils will not forget the experience in a hurry and this will help to put a positive spin on literacy. What have you got to lose? Get in touch.

The Punctuation Show

The Punctuation Show is our most popular show and covers how to use most of the punctuation marks required for modern communication. As with all of our shows, there is a mixture of song, humour and quiz to ensure maximum audience participation

We had a fantastic morning. Barrie’s high energy performance had even the most self conscious children joining in with many others making a real breakthrough in their understanding of punctuation.

The Grammar Show

The Grammar Show builds on the success of The Punctuation Show and covers everything needed to write interesting and varied sentences. As with all of our shows, there is a mixture of song, humour and quiz to ensure maximum audience participation

Thank you so much for last Tuesday's grammar show. The younger children loved every minute, and you even won over some of our more stubborn Year 6s, who were busy humming the complex sentences song all the next day. The best part is that we can use all your resources again as follow-up, so it's so much more than a one-off event. Making grammar fun - who would have thought it possible?

The English GCSE Show

The English GCSE Show is the new version of our first show - The Podcastrevision Roadshow. The coverage is perfect for revising AQA unit 1, but we've also had great feedback from schools studying all exam boards

Our students left your shows enthused and singing... about reading, writing and punctuation! What’s even better is that a week down the line, they still remember everything you taught them. The GCSE Revision Show and Punctuation Show were so successful that you have been the talk of the school and the other year groups have complained that they didn’t get to take part! Your shows are education, entertaining and informative; I will be spreading the word and we will be booking you again. Thank you very much for a fun day.
