This day is focused on recharging your batteries and expanding your teaching repertoire with great ideas for next year.
FOCUS ON READING: Twenty-five things to do with a poem
Cut it up, draw it, cloze it, sing it…it’s all here, and you get to try some of the activities. A key part of this session is seeing how the activities relate to NC objectives and improve comprehension. This session includes both KS1 and KS2 examples.
FOCUS ON WRITING: Short and sweet: the value of micro-writing
Writing can be improved on a small canvas by in-depth teaching and instant practice. Highly relevant to the teaching of grammar, précis and more ambitious expression. This session includes both KS1 and KS2 examples.
FOCUS ON SPOKEN LANGUAGE: Tabletop drama
A dozen ideas for using drama at the desk, all of them easy to use and a good way in to drama for new teachers.
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:
• After a full year, which aspects of practice have been the hardest in English?
• What do you have to do to begin developing your career and promotion chances in the subject.
