Developing Greater Depth in Writing in KS1

December 6, 2022 10:00 am £50 Online

Session runs 10am – 12noon.

This interactive online course will provide teachers with the opportunity to develop their understanding of the characteristics of writing at greater depth, as well as to explore approaches and strategies for developing and encouraging able writers in their classes.  

The course is open to teachers of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 so that they can support and challenge writers right across the year groups, with the focus on securing the greater depth ​standard at the end of Key Stage 1. 

Participants will: 

  • consider what makes an effective writer 
  • secure an understanding of greater depth at the end of KS1 by clarifying each ‘Pupil can’ statement and the ‘step up’ from expected standard to greater depth 
  • consider the journey towards greater depth in writing across EYFS and KS1 
  • explore practical approaches, activities and resources to support pupils in developing writing skills, confidence, independence and motivation across EYFS and KS1

Joining instructions and course material will be sent out beforehand.

Due to the interactive nature of the session, please be aware that a ticket admits one delegate only.
