Code: ASS/20/455/P Assessment moderation cluster for teachers in Years 5 and 6: cluster 3 - Stevenage (LIMITED SPACES)

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/20/135/P Effective support for English: local cluster session for teaching assistants

Highly effective teaching assistants can add real value to pupil's learning. As the Sutton Trust identified, investing in professional development for this group of practitioners makes the difference. This 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 with reading and writing both in the classroom and through guided group work. We will be delving into some subject knowledge as well as providing plenty of practical activities which can be used straight away back in the classroom.
