This CPD package is based on the published research from the Education Endowment Fund and Sutton Trust Toolkit which ranks strategies and approaches according to evidenced based impact on attainment. Teachers will be led through an in-depth study of the following approaches that can be implemented into day-to-day teaching and learning:
Research evidence suggests that Verbal Feedback is one of the most effective tools teachers have at their disposal. This CPD looks at why this might be the case and how we can make the best use of it at the point of children learning. It examines the different opportunities and points through learning where verbal feedback can make a difference.
Delivering a curriculum that has high quality talk at the heart of it can be challenging. This CPD aims to equip teachers with strategies for better quality questioning and dialogic talk and provides practical ways to enable collaborative and evaluative talk to grow in the classroom.
Many schools are now aiming to develop and build a Mastery Curriculum for their learners; providing a curriculum and approach that ensures learning ‘sticks’. This CPD looks at the research and pedagogy behind mastery learning and presents the key elements that need to be built into planning, teaching and learning in order for children to secure skills and knowledge.
This CPD focuses on the crucial Early Reading skills that must be in place for children to develop into successful readers.
EYFS teachers and teaching assistants will have the opportunity to review evidence -based research in this field and consider what best practice in the teaching of early Phonics and Language comprehension should include.
Participants will be given in-depth knowledge of developing Word Recognition skills including the importance of Phonological Awareness and will be supported to develop a systematic and progressive Early Reading curriculum for EYFS children.
Knowledge of high quality texts that support teaching of language skills is a crucial element of teachers’ expertise.
Teachers will have the opportunity to update their knowledge of high quality, recently published texts for young children that can support the development of phonological awareness and early language comprehension.
The CPD will consider and demonstrate how texts can be a highly effective tool to teach Early Reading Skills of Language Comprehension and Phonological Awareness.
The systematic teaching of Phonics is recognised as fundamental to children’s progress in reading. Teachers will be equipped to teach Phonics effectively by ensuring they have :
For some children, progress in Phonics skills may have been delayed or hindered in KS1 and as they enter Key Stage 2 their reading and spelling skills can remain weak. This CPD enables KS2 teachers to analyse the gaps that children have in either reading or spelling as well as familiarising them with the skills and knowledge needed to teach phonics effectively to KS2 learners. Teachers will have:
This course provides the basic knowledge and understanding required for the effective teaching of Grammar and Punctuation in both Key Stage 1 and 2. Teachers will:
Research currently provides strong evidence that learners must be taught the explicit skills used by fluent readers when reading a text.
Participants will :
Recent research and professional surveys have identified children’s increasingly limited vocabulary as having a significant impact on their ability to engage with and understand more challenging texts and how this can then impact on future life opportunities. This CPD aims to:
Choice and use of quality texts to drive English teaching and learning can be a highly effective tool. This CPD aims to:
Significant recent research is now stressing the need to teach the ‘will’ of reading alongside the ‘skill’. Strong evidence supports the view that an intrinsic motivation to read will have a hugely positive outcome on life opportunities and outcomes. Over the course of the CPD, participants will:
Poetry can be a powerful tool to develop vocabulary, inference and language choice as well as providing engaging and inspiring models for children to produce their own poetry. Effectively taught, poetry can provide rich language memories that children can carry with them throughout life.
In these CPD sessions teachers will:
