Code: ENG/19/242/P Raising writing standards in Year 5: writing development programme (Cancelled)

This innovative and sharply focused programme of extended writing CPD aims to support identified pupils in Year 5 who are not yet working at expected standards.

Teachers will be provided with a suite of intervention materials that can form part of the schools continuous provision for vulnerable writers; these materials are included in the cost of this programme. These sequences include twenty detailed lessons with a range of resources and a variety of innovative approaches to support the focus pupils to develop the skills and the confidence required for age-related writing. The lessons can be adapted to form a part of whole-class teaching or used for a small group in addition to the English lessons. These approaches and resources can also be embedded as part of the teaching cycle year-on-year. Teachers will benefit from a heightened awareness, and deeper subject knowledge of the elements that support precise, effective writing.

The programme begins with a half day’s training in which participants will be supported to consider the core aspects and transferable skills in writing. There will be an opportunity to familiarise themselves with the lesson content and ask questions.

Each school will have a half-day consultancy visit from one of the course leaders. The focus pupil’s writing will be rigorously analysed for both composition and grammar by the Herts for Learning advisers to provide a baseline assessment, and then again at the end of the programme, thus providing an analysis of the progress made. This assessment is included in the cost of the programme.

The cost includes two places per school: one for the Year 5 teacher and one for the subject leader/SLT member 5 teacher(s) in order to consider how the principles of the programme can be adapted in school and applied to other year groups. Please note that this programme focuses intensively on the writing skills that underpin technically precise and effective composition – it is not designed to address spelling or handwriting issues.

An added benefit to the programme is the opportunity to network with other Year 5 teachers through a final review/celebration session.

As the course is based on responsive teaching, it may not be suitable for less experienced teachers.
