SPARK Year 4 Writing Remote Judging Session Summer Term (Cancelled)

The removal of national curriculum levels has afforded schools great freedom to assess pupils using their chosen methodology, beyond the statutory assessment points.

Following a successful trial during the spring term we are pleased to offer a further summer term Year 4 writing cluster meeting. These meetings aim to develop consistency of judgement in teacher assessment and to provide a benchmark for writing midway through KS2.

This session is for teachers who have already used compara ...

The Laughter Factor (Cancelled)

This course will explore the relationship between positive well being and learning for children. It will explore recent research and consider how laughter for children impacts the context for learning and its consolidation.

Rana Esseily (2015) conducted research on babies as young 18 months old, which showed that laughter resulted in babies learning more of the target actions than those in the control group who were not laughing during the learning period. Esseily hypothesizes that laughter may help with learning because dopamine released while laughing enhances learning.

Mental & Written Calculation (Cancelled)

The current National Curriculum in England states that, in Years 1 & 2, the principal focus of mathematics is to ensure that pupils develop confidence and mental fluency with whole numbers, counting and place value. By the end of Year 2 the expectation is that pupils know their number bonds to 20. To 20 means for all numbers to 20. This builds on the assumption that children in Year 1 have mastered their number bonds for all numbers to 10 and are developing their knowledge of facts to 20. They should also begin to learn other mental calculation strategies. The National Curriculum indicates tha ...

The HighScope Approach to Supporting Children’s Learning (Cancelled)

If you have tried everything to provide a different learning experience for children and still feel you are missing something this one day workshop is for you.

HighScope's educational approach emphasizes “active participatory learning.” Active learning means students have direct, hands-on experiences with people, objects, events, and ideas. Children’s interests and choices are at the heart of HighScope programs. They construct their own knowledge through interactions with the world and the people around them. (HighScope Educational Research Foundation, 2018)

This session will enable pra ...
