Event Description
TAs are linchpins in any school and this bespoke training session is designed to support their continued professional development. The two-hour session will offer teaching assistants the opportunity to reflect on key aspects of the Primary English Curriculum and how best to support pupils both in the classroom and through guided group work. The morning delves into key subject knowledge, and provides plenty of practical activities which can be used back in the classroom to help maximise pupil progress.

Delegates will explore some of the commonly found gaps in reading, spelling and writing for pupils and be supported in selecting appropriate strategies to close those gaps. These include phonic and spelling games, ideas to support struggling readers and reading comprehension together with activities and strategies to support grammar knowledge and writing.
