Code: ASS/19/508/P Assessment moderation cluster for teachers of Year 2: Cluster 4 – Stevenage

This year, the focus of this moderation session will be reading and writing. The session will provide an excellent opportunity for Year 2 teachers to work together to explore the accuracy of their assessment judgements and achieve greater consistency in standards. Teachers will be supported in considering how secure their pupils are in their learning so far, and how well on track they are for the end of Key Stage 1 standards.

It is essential that delegates bring along examples of pupils' work from their class. We will provide a suggested reading assessment task for teachers to use with the pupils in advance of the sessions. In January, information will be sent to delegates and also uploaded to the grid at: http://www.thegrid.org.uk/learning/assessment/ks1/moderationclusters.shtml

Code: 19MAT/051P Creating challenge within the Lower Key Stage 2 age-related mathematics curriculum

Is pitching work at the correct level for the most able or setting work which consistently challenges and stretches the most able or improving teaching of the most-able so they achieve higher standards an area of development? Understanding exactly what this means and looks like in the classroom is hard. Pupils who are quick at calculating and getting the right answer might seem secure and ready for the challenge. But do they have depth of understanding? Can they explain their thinking or apply it independently to a different context?

This course will explore how to move pupils through the programme of study ‘at broadly the same pace’ whilst providing opportunities to challenge all pupils. Using our challenge toolkit, we will look at ways to add depth and challenge to tasks suitable for all by adding reasoning, varying representations, asking ‘what if?’ and developing independence.

Code: 19ENG/037P Primary English Conference: Knowlogy – Seeking Wit, Wisdom and Wonder through Reading

One of the recognised ways in which pupils gain knowledge is through reading. When it comes to which texts to choose to supply this knowledge, the choice is vast.

Great historical fiction, biographical narratives, and quality reference books all have the power to inform and delight.

This conference aims to celebrate the full range of knowledge-enhancing texts available to teachers, even going so far as to honour this special subset of literature with its own categorisation: ‘knowlogy texts’ – those texts that are capable of imparting and developing knowledge. ‘Knowlogy’ texts have never been more exciting, or more relevant.

With children being expected to read widely and deeply across all curriculum areas, now is the perfect time for teachers to refresh their understanding of what constitutes a quality text within this category, and how it can be used to foster excellent outcomes in reading and writing across the primary phases.

Herts for Learning and Just Imagine are delighted to be working in collaboration to welcome teachers to a conference that is sure to be inspiring, informative and relevant. With guest speakers, Teresa Cremin, professor of Education at the Open University, and Janina Ramirez, historian, broadcaster and author of Riddles of the Runes: a Viking mystery, colleagues will be sure to leave armed with a wealth of exciting new titles that they are excited to share with their classes.

A range of workshops will be available on the day, each aimed at enthusing a passion and knowledge for how non-fiction can be used to excite young readers and writers.
