Improving Writing in KS2 Through Effective Planning

Audience: Primary
Single session
  • Primary School Improvement Training Package
  • Key Stage 2

Brief Overview

This course will support KS2 teachers to build a unit around a high-quality text that enables them to deliver all of the National Curriculum objectives for English (reading, writing and GPS). Delegates will explore ways to engage pupils with a text, strategies for developing their ideas and vocabulary, and understand how to build in opportunities to revisit previously taught text forms to ensure learning 'sticks'.

This course will focus on the text 'Arthur and the Golden Rope' by Joe Todd-Stanton. It would be helpful for delegates to have their own copy to hand to mark up during the course.
