About this course

With a focus on moving children from dependence to greater independence, together we will explore how to challenge your children in order to enable them to apply their intertwined reading and writing skills across the curriculum.

The training will:

  • Give teachers a deeper understanding of what greater depth should look like across all year groups.
  • Look at the skills required to be a successful reader, moving children from basic comprehension to deep, consistent application of more complex inference and deduction.
  • Focus on developing cohesion and flow, moving beyond the exploration and practice of a range of writing techniques into honed, author-like content.
  • Provide you with a range of practical activities to demonstrate what classroom practice may look like.
  • Consider how to closely develop pupils’ ability to understand word meanings and authors’ uses of language, moving them from basic to deeper management of their own vocabulary, sentence construction and grammar when writing.
  • Enable your pupils to achieve excellence in both reading and writing.

Audience:

Key stage 1 / Key stage 2

  • Class teachers
  • English subject leaders
  • Senior Leadership team

What teachers say

“A very useful and informative session, I feel clearer about greater depth and how to support pupils to achieve it."
Hayley Dilger, Deputy Head, The Elms Junior School

“I enjoyed looking at children's work at greater depth, and found the ideas for gamification excellent."
Siobhan Pollard, St. Peter's Catholic Primary School, Gloucester

“Excellent - I found it very useful for both recognising more clearly greater depth writing and the many games to improve teaching and learning."

COVID-19 update:

Please note all of our CPD courses are going ahead. Where possible, these will take place at the venue(s) below. However, we may deliver the training via live webinar instead, giving  teachers and leaders the ability to interact with the trainer and course without the need to attend the venue.  Even better, if we live-stream your course, a recording of the course will be available for you to view for one month after the course date, meaning you can enjoy the course anywhere, any time, even if your plans change at short notice.

At TT Education we aim to provide you with the outstanding training experience you deserve, from the fantastic resources you receive to the beautiful venues we hold our training in, with lunch and refreshments included.

Please note that the exact venues used in each town or city are subject to change. We will send a Welcome Email approximately 7 days before the date of the course, confirming the venue.
