Code: ENG/20/71/P Securing full stops in Years 1 and 2

The writing programme of study for Year 1 states that pupils should be taught, in the first instance, to compose sentences in writing in order to secure the basic concept of a sentence. Many pupils enter Year 1 not having secured this and need more time and experiences which will help embed these core, basic, but essential skills. NC2014 asks that pupils 'master' certain basic skills to enable them to be on a strong trajectory for the next part of their learning journey.

This course focuses on those basic sentence structure and punctuation skills and dives into methods of teaching those aspects. Many pupils entering Year 2 will continue to need to learn how to secure the concept of a sentence within the sentence range with which they are familiar before expanding their understanding of the wider range of different sentence forms, use of conjunctions and punctuation. It is important therefore, that any weaknesses in conceptual understanding are identified and addressed early on so that teachers can embark upon supporting their pupils to move to the next step of learning.

This course will support delegates to address this issue through the combination of a subject knowledge development session, and a tailored in-school consultancy visit. At the half-day session, delegates will have an opportunity to explore the common barriers that their pupils experience, as well as consider a range of tried and tested techniques to improve sentence structure and punctuation. During the half day in-school consultancy visit (to be arranged at a time to suit the school), the class teacher and subject leader (if available) will have an opportunity to consider how the techniques have worked for their pupils and how they can be adapted to further develop pupils' skills in this area.
