Event Description
Enriching and extending pupil's vocabulary 'opens doors' to increasingly complex texts, supports reading to learn and deeper understanding, and reaps benefits across the curriculum.

This course offers Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 teachers the opportunity to consider the critical importance of early vocabulary development and the vital role it plays in determining future academic achievement.

Informed by research, the course covers a wide range of practical approaches that can be implemented in the classroom quickly and effectively.

Delegates will also have the opportunity to consider strategies and practices that can be adopted and adapted by a whole school. The course will support teachers in deciding which words to teach and why. It will explore links between: - vocabulary, language comprehension and reading - vocabulary, spelling and enriching pupil's writing composition - vocabulary and other curricular areas.
