:: Stretch and challenge for high attaining pupils at Key Stage 2 ::
Outline
This course will support schools to tailor their curriculum to meet the needs of, and challenge, their more able writers. It will cover the identification of pupils who, despite attaining well, are at risk of ‘falling behind’ (Ofsted 2015). Delegates will go on to explore a range of pedagogical approaches which will inspire and develop technical skills, individual voice and style. In Key Stage 2, the journey of the more able writer will be considered. This will include an investigation of how writing progresses beyond - but not at the expense of - grammatical accuracy. Through engagement with this course, delegates will consider how the exemplified approaches may be used to develop a writers’ culture in class that marries high expectations with high quality outcomes for all.
Prerequisites
Training is available in Key Stage 1 (morning) and Key Stage 2 (afternoon). Any delegates attending both sessions will receive lunch on the day.
