Supporting Writing in KS2: A workshop for Teaching Assistants

May 19, 2022 1:00 pm £50 Online

Join this interactive online workshop to develop your subject knowledge of the KS2 writing curriculum and gain new ideas to support pupils with their written work.

(Please note, this is a new date. The original session was scheduled for 3rd May.)

In many cases, Teaching Assistants are involved in supporting groups and individual pupils with their written work.

This course is designed specifically to provide TAs with an understanding of the KS2 writing curriculum and its associated subject knowledge, as well as an opportunity to explore strategies and approaches for scaffolding their writing to develop independence.

Suitable for TAs working in KS1 or KS2.

Please note: KS2 TAs who are supporting pupils to learn and apply KS1 writing objectives may find it helpful to attend the Supporting Writing in KS1 workshop on 17th May 2022.

Participants will:

• understand the national curriculum requirements for writing in KS2 and the associated subject knowledge and terminology

• explore strategies, activities and resources for working with pupils when writing

• consider approaches for scaffolding writing for pupils who find difficulty with written work

Due to the highly interactive nature of this session, a ticket admits one delegate only.

The session will be held via Zoom and a link plus all documents will be sent to delegates prior to the course.
