This agenda may be revised if major developments occur before the session.
1. Update on policy
A round up of news from the DfE and Ofsted, including the HMCI report and Ofsted’s recent criticisms of subject leaders.
2. Curriculum planning – securing formal Standard English for pupils aspiring to ‘working at greater depth’
A session which itemises the elements of Standard English and in which year they are best taught for progression.
3. Curriculum planning – teaching different kinds of text
The new performance descriptors specify that pupils should write ‘appropriately’ in a ‘range’ of styles. So where do they pick up this range of styles? We consider what the range includes and where they are traditionally taught.
4. A free classroom PPT resource for KS1: Building Vocabulary
Vocabulary has been earmarked for greater attention in the Early Years and KS1 curriculum, and in the new baseline test. This PPT will set you up with a lively classroom session or two for KS1 pupils that will challenge and extend their knowledge of vocabulary.
You will collect by email:
· Two curriculum planning activities to use with colleagues back at school
· A free PPT for use in the KS1 classroom: Building Vocabulary
£40.00 per place
