Code: ASS/20/453/P Assessment moderation cluster for teachers in Years 5 and 6: cluster 1 - North Watford and Abbots Langley

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:

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.

Code: ENG/20/19/P Developing expertise in the teaching of reading at Key Stage 2

‘It is essential that, by the end of their primary education, all pupils are able to read fluently, and with confidence, in any subject in their forthcoming secondary education. (2014 National Curriculum)

This course will support Key Stage 2 teachers in becoming expert teachers of reading by:
• unpicking the progression of skills needed to become a fluent and confident reader
• developing understanding and knowledge of ways to improve reading outcomes
• exploring some of the barriers to reading that will affect some pupils’ progress.

This course will develop participants' understanding of how reading is taught in English lessons, guided reading, one-to-one and how it is facilitated and embedded throughout all curriculum subjects.

We will help participants to unpick the key skills that are involved in being able to successfully read and comprehend a range of texts. We will identify effective teaching approaches to foster the required skills.

The course draws upon recent research and findings from the Education Endowment Foundation to help participants stay up to date with proven strategies, including aspects of decoding, fluency, inference, retrieval and self-regulation.

Participants will engage in practical ideas to inspire and excite pupils, exploring ways to develop that ‘love of reading’ (2014 National Curriculum), which can become a platform for successful reading across a range of texts.

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!
