Herts for Learning Online
:: 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 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
