This fun activity is here to help you revise for your GCSEs or A-levels in English. Following the same format as my literary devices crossword, this worksheet is designed to give you the chance to brush up on the most important grammar terms for your exam. Plus, you can have a whole lot of fun while you’re at it!
Put down the boring study notes and pop quizzes for a moment. Not all revision has to be a bore, you know! There are plenty of fun quizzes, crosswords, word searches and games that you can use to spice up your study sessions. This puzzle is one of them!
The beauty of the crossword is that it requires you to remember the name of the grammar term based on a short clue, which helps to make sure you know them all for the exam! If you can’t remember the name of a term, you know that you need to go back and revise it. This helps to keep the terms fresh in your memory and also to make revising more efficient for you in the long term. Plus, you get the chance to learn the correct spellings, too!
Of course, it is a good idea to make sure you know these grammar terms. The government has made it clear in their guidance that they want exam boards to be on the lookout for subject terminology. Grammar terms definitely count!
It’s a great idea to combine this worksheet with my tips and tricks. That will help you to know what you need to work on and how to go about it. So, you won’t need to spend lots of time reading over things you’re sure you already know. Instead, you can dedicate your revision time to the topics that matter to you.
Who Is the Grammar Terms Crossword For?
I made this crossword for students who are getting ready for their GCSE English exams. It doesn’t matter if you’re studying language and literature together or just language alone. The people marking your exams specifically look for subject terminology. Grammar terms count for that! So, making sure to remember the names of important grammar terms is a great way to get easy marks.
It’s not just for GCSE students, though! The earlier you get to know these grammar terms, the better. If you’re a KS3 student thinking about ways to prepare for your GCSEs early, this is a fun way to do so. Also, you might want to try it out if you’re sitting your A-levels or transitioning between Year 11 and 6th Form. In fact, even adult learners can benefit from knowing the useful grammar terms in this crossword!
The earlier you start revising, the easier things will be on you later on. I recommend working revision into your schedule throughout the year. That way, you’ll have much less cramming to do later on! Not all studying has to feel like work, though. This crossword feels much more like a game. You’ll be revising without even realising!
