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

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: ASS/20/457/P Assessment moderation cluster for teachers in Years 5 and 6: cluster 5 - Bishop’s Stortford and Buntingford

This year, the focus of this moderation session will be reading and writing. The session will provide an excellent opportunity for teachers to work together with colleagues across schools, to help to build a consistent understanding of the national curriculum standards and year group expectations. We will also use the sessions to promote good practice in building powerful assessment and formative feedback opportunities into everyday learning in order to plug gaps, build on existing learning and ensure progression in reading and writing skills.

It is essential that delegates bring along examples of pupils' work from their class. We will provide suggested assessment tasks for both reading and writing for teachers to use with the pupils in advance of the sessions. Information will be sent to delegates and also uploaded to the grid at: http://www.thegrid.org.uk/learning/assessment/ks2/moderationclusters.shtml

Code: ENG/20/253/P Key Stage 2 Reading Fluency Project: Implications for Classroom Practice - Havant

This one-day CPD event will offer an insight into the transformational teaching strategies used in the Herts for Learning Key Stage 2 Reading Fluency Project.

The project draws on proven reading strategies to improve pupils’ trajectory towards the Expected Standard (EXS) in reading in Year 6, including:

  • modelling of fluent reading
  • echo reading
  • repeated re-reading

Previous project participant pupils made an average of 22 months progress in their reading comprehension age (PPG pupils made 29 months progress). 86% of eligible pupils made 7 months+ progress in their reading comprehension age and furthermore, following the eight-week project period, pupils typically demonstrated the following changes in reading behaviour including increased stamina, accuracy, enjoyment, confidence and engagement.
