Code: COM/20/67/P Dust off the iPads - great apps and better practice for primary schools (Cancelled)

Sometimes a school’s iPads are not used as well as originally hoped, and may be sitting in a cupboard or only utilised for internet research. It may be felt that the school should be getting more from the investment. In this half-day course delegates will consider the effective use of iPads in primary settings. Delegates will have hands-on experience of a range exciting apps for content creation, computing, augmented reality and more.

Delegates will also consider solutions for moving work to and from the iPads. Delegates will leave the session full of ideas about how to bring their iPads back to life!

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.
