Code: 19MAT/046P Achieving mathematical age-related expectations by the end of Year 2

Grappling with the aims and content within the Key Stage 1 curriculum and the continuously changing Teacher Assessment Framework (TAF), it is increasingly important to understand what age-related expectations should look like.

The course will look at the changes in the TAF seen for use from 2018/19 onwards to ensure that teachers are ready to adapt the learning appropriately.

This course will support Year 1 and 2 teachers to help their pupils achieve the national standard and modify teaching to accelerate learning so that pupils maximise their potential.

During the day, delegates will investigate the key mathematical concepts that pupils find tricky and explore teaching strategies to guide them towards success. This will allow teachers an opportunity to map out their long-term plan across the year implementing the strategies and activities they will gain from the day.

Code: ENG/20/17/P Reading stamina for success in Years 5 and 6

This course has been designed to help teachers boost the reading stamina of pupils in Upper Key Stage 2 (UKS2).

A pupil’s reading stamina is their ability to sustain reading for longer periods of time. There will be those pupils who find it easy to get lost in a book, and there will be those who do everything possible to avoid reading and struggle to complete books. The latter are often a concern for UKS2 teachers because of the demands required of the reading curriculum.

The 2019 KS2 Reading SATs paper presented a challenge for many pupils nationally. Reading stamina is, and will continue to be, key in accessing challenging texts with sufficient comprehension to be successful. Unlocking this valuable reading skill will not only allow pupils to succeed in reading assessments, but it will also give pupils the confidence to begin reading and enjoying a wide range of literature.

Trainers will share strategies designed to improve pupils’ engagement with reading and swiftly build their stamina. Delegates will explore a range of approaches and will leave with a teaching sequence to use in class.
