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

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 ...

New to EYFS Leadership

Maintained schools and academies and non-association independent schools that have Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) provision are given a separate grade for that provision as part of school inspections conducted under section 5 of the Education Act 2005 (as amended by the Education Act 2011).

Effective Grammar Teaching for Years 3 & 4 (Cancelled)

The national curriculum 2014 details specific subject content and terminology for the teaching of grammar, alongside accountability measures which test these aspects of the curriculum. However, research by D. Myhill et al. shows that effective grammar teaching is embedded in real contexts for writing and related to effect of grammar on audience and purpose, supported by metacognition. It means teachers really need to access provision such as this to ensure they can discuss and reflect on their practice.

This course aims to equip practitioners with practical strategies to use in their class ...

Developing Whole Class Reading Provision

The teaching of reading has developed over the last twenty years as a result of considerable research and changes in the national education landscape, alongside ever changing social and cultural needs for reading. Teachers are balancing the need to develop a love of reading, with the requirements of the classroom and accountability measures. Research into reading for pleasure (e.g. Clark and Rumbold, 2006) has shown that it has a range of significant benefits, such as improving educational as well as personal development.

Teachers need time to consider all aspects of teaching reading, with ...

The teaching of spelling has gained importance since changes in national expectations for writing. Therefore teachers require good subject knowledge and sound pedagogy for teaching this aspect.

Research into effective spelling teaching has been limited, but there are key areas to explore and underpinning subject knowledge to make teaching effective.
