Code: ENG/20/131/P Spelling SOS Key Stage 2 Project

The 2014 National Curriculum catapulted spelling at KS2 into the limelight, and the KS2 assessment framework documents have further intensified the focus on spelling over the last four years. With this in mind, schools have been grappling with – and will need to consider further – how to equip their pupils for this increased challenge, so that they are able to meet the expected standard at the end of KS2 with confidence.

This project has been designed to offer strategies that will have a swift and powerful impact on pupils’ spelling achievement. Following successful implementation of the project, the pupils will be on an improved trajectory towards EXS at the end of KS2; have a more positive relationship with spelling; be more enthusiastic, confident spellers with an increased understanding and knowledge of the spelling system.

The project will focus predominantly on the need to improve pupils’ current individual spelling errors and misconceptions. Accurate spelling is a key component of writing fluently; enabling pupils’ cognitive resources to be freed from focusing on spelling means it can then be redirected towards writing composition. Following this event a half-day consultancy visit will be arranged with an allocated adviser week commencing 20th January 2020.

Code: MAT/19/141/S Why do they always forget? Securing Grades 4 and 5 in Year 11

“Why do they always forget?” – a cry of frustration familiar to many who have taught Foundation Tier GCSE. There are many students who clearly have the potential to gain a Grade 4 or 5, but who seem to have a problem retaining mathematical facts and processes.
Why is this? This is the question this course seeks to answer. We will explore how we can help these perfectly intelligent and capable young people turn things around and gain the grades they need to give their life-chances a kick-start.
The day is divided into two equal halves, to enable the course to be shared between different delegates if this is more convenient for schools
