About this course

With a focus on moving children from dependence to greater independence, together we will explore how to challenge your children in order to enable them to apply their intertwined reading and writing skills across the curriculum.

The training will:

  • Give teachers a deeper understanding of what greater depth should look like across all year groups.
  • Look at the skills required to be a successful reader, moving children from basic comprehension to deep, consistent application of more complex inference and deduction.
  • Focus on developing cohesion and flow, moving beyond the exploration and practice of a range of writing techniques into honed, author-like content.
  • Provide you with a range of practical activities to demonstrate what classroom practice may look like.
  • Consider how to closely develop pupils’ ability to understand word meanings and authors’ uses of language, moving them from basic to deeper management of their own vocabulary, sentence construction and grammar when writing.
  • Enable your pupils to achieve excellence in both reading and writing.

Audience:

Key stage 1 / Key stage 2

  • Class teachers
  • English subject leaders
  • Senior Leadership team
