This day is focused on taking an active approach to reading non-fiction, supporting children’s extended writing and extending pupils’ vocabulary. All the sessions will be very practical and interactive and give you plenty of ideas to use in the classroom.
FOCUS ON READING: Reading non-fiction
We explore a number of active reading strategies that highlight the features of non-fiction and secure close reading and understanding.
FOCUS ON ORAL AND WRITTEN LANGUAGE: Extending pupils’ vocabulary
We try out a number of games, activities and teaching tips for building pupils’ vocabulary in both speech and writing.
FOCUS ON WRITING: Teaching extended writing
This session introduces a teaching sequence that makes light work of longer pieces of writing. It is focused on planning and sustaining written work.
WHAT’S ON YOUR MIND?
A chance to ask difficult questions, share an issue or get a second opinion on a tricky case. And if you don’t have questions, here are some for you:
• How do you know your pupils are on track to succeed?
• How do you provide extra help for pupils who need to catch up?
