:: Assessing and securing greater depth in Year 6 writing ::
This full-day course, delivered jointly by the English and Assessment teams, will focus on what ‘working at great depth’ in Year 6 could look like for writing in the Year 6 classroom. Using the Interim Teacher Assessment Framework in conjunction with writing exemplars, we will explore the requirements for Greater Depth and provide detailed guidance on the sorts of evidence that would support a judgement at this standard. A range of teaching approaches, writing opportunities and suitable texts to support pupils in achieving the greater depth measure will be shared. Developing pupils as confident, mature writers - both in technical and authorial terms - will underpin the course content.
By attending the course, participants will:
  • gain confidence assessing writing at ‘greater depth’- knowing what it is, and what it isn’t
  • discuss examples of work from pupils who might be considered working at greater depth in Year 6 in writing, exploring what makes good writing evidence
  • consider how to use the remaining time available to both secure the learning required and help pupils to demonstrate it in their work
  • explore writing opportunities and texts that are well-placed to provide good evidence to demonstrate pupils’ learning
Suitable for:
  • Assessment Coordinators
  • Classroom Teachers
  • Middle Leaders
  • Subject Leaders
Being delivered by Clare Hodgson and Martin Galway
