Event Description
This full-day course is designed to help teachers to prepare to deliver writing instruction that supports the development of writers ‘working at great depth’ (GDS) in Year 6. Through the use of exemplification and explanation of terms, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the requirements for a judgement of GDS. Across the day, there will be opportunities to explore teaching and learning that will support young writers to meet the demands of the assessment framework without sacrificing the joys of great writing. Exciting writing opportunities and approaches will be shared that inspire, as well as offer stretch and challenge for our most confident writers. Developing pupils as confident, motivated, and mature writers - both in technical and authorial terms - will underpin the course content.

Please note the venue for the event has changed since the Spring pbulication of the brochure.  The training will now take place as a webinar.
