                          Writing in Year 6 - ‘Expected’ at the end of KS2

                          Due to current restrictions, all our training sessions will now be conducted ‘virtually’.

                          This on-line course will help you to plan and teach effective writing sessions that will support your children to achieve the ‘Expected’ standard at the end of KS2 – and help them to be ready for KS3. 

                          We will help you to:

                          • ‘unpick’ the standard and use all available materials to fully understand the expectations, to inform teaching and to make accurate judgements
                          • teach the key skills in vocabulary, grammar and punctuation needed to meet the ‘Expected’ standard
                          • develop your use of modelled writing to improve composition skills, including planning, drafting and editing
                          • identify and overcome barriers – spelling and handwriting
                          • motivate even the most reluctant writers, through the use of invented/real audiences and purposes, quality texts, film and ‘real-life’ experiences
                          • use exciting opportunities to apply skills into a range of fiction and non-fiction independent writing tasks, including cross-curricular
                          • develop children’s independent proof-reading and editing for improvement
                          • develop an effective plan to collect writing evidence for internal/external moderation

                            Well led and informative.  A chance to think and do!  Lots to think about and try.  I ended up with a planned unit of work.

                            This has given me a clearer focus for my lessons and made me re-evaluate current practice.  Always so much information and lots of prompts to question our current practice.

                            Great step-by-step guide on a narrative unit with great grammar and reading advice included.
