Code: ASS/19/238/A Every time we write – developing metacognition and self-regulation to improve writing outcomes

The recent EEF report highlights the consistently high level of impact when metacognitive and self-regulatory subject-specific approaches have been developed, with pupils making an average of seven months’ additional progress. With this in mind, and borne out of the common issues seen when moderating pupil writing at Key Stages 1 and 2, this new course includes a new classroom resource, ‘Every time we write’: a pupil resource and teacher tool to help to move every pupil to age-related expectations for their year group. This resource is designed to be used throughout the school in Years 1 to 6, in order to build a pupil’s own editing and review strategies in a systematic and planned way.

This course is suitable for literacy subject leads, allowing them to gain the overview of progression in writing throughout the primary curriculum, and also for class teachers, who will gain invaluable strategies and resources for direct use in the classroom in order to develop quality writing and build pupils’ metacognitive skills.

A limited number of places are available for delegates to receive a post-course coaching visit in school with an assessment adviser. This coaching session can be used flexibly: to troubleshoot, observe pupils working with the ‘every time we write’ resource in the classroom, and engage in professional dialogue in order to review the development in pupils’ writing and metacognitive skills.

Code: EAY/19/490/P Supporting smooth transitions briefing

As part of the HCC commissioned transition project, the Herts for Learning Early Years team are providing briefing sessions to share details of the project, the transition level of need pathway and provide each school with a copy of the transition toolkit. The overall focus of the project is to ensure a smooth transition for all children, including those at risk of underachievement.

The aim of the briefing is for early years practitioners working in school nursery and reception classes to receive information on the transition level of need pathway and tools developed as part of the project. It will be important that practitioners gain an understanding of how this can support early identification of those children with potential barriers to learning and help enable them to experience a smooth transition to school.

A transition toolkit will be provided for each school with a range of resources to support transition practice.
