The government has made it clear that they will be measuring vocabulary in the new baseline and beefing it up in the revised Early Years curriculum, where it is currently unassessed. Part of the thinking is that vocabulary is a prime indicator of progress among deprived pupils who arrive in school with a fraction of the words known to their more affluent peers. We all need to think harder about extending vocabulary across the years.
This half-day course overflows with ideas, activities and approaches to build vocabulary across the years, and help pupils to tackle vocabulary questions in the SATs.
• What is the government is saying about vocabulary in the new baseline, revised EYFSP and subsequent measures of deprivation?
• How can schools build up the vocabulary curriculum and make it more systematic?
• What research says about the way children acquire and retain new words
• Teaching children to crack unknown words
• 10 great games to build vocabulary
• 10 things you can do in and around school to build vocabulary
Lots of free resources.
All classroom activities are provided as mastercopies by email.
