Helping Children Achieve Greater Depth Writing

Helping Children Achieve Greater Depth Writing
This training will introduce some key approaches to develop KS2 children’s writing so that they both achieve greater depth and enjoy writing. It will focus on how short-burst writing followed by model texts can be used to develop key writing tools so that children can increasingly use these effectively in their own writing. This will be combined with exploring how rich reading influences writing so that children are learning from and inspired by the best of writing.


INSET outcomes: By the end of the training, delegates should have gained in understanding of how to plan and deliver units of work that progressively build the language patterns  of key writing skills. INSET outline: The session will be very practical and interactive. The focus will be on devising engaging language activities that build up a wide range of writing skills. This enables the children to develop a hook your reader toolkit in their heads which they can draw on to engage their audience by creating different effects depending on the purpose of their writing. Delegates will be provided with a PDF of the presentation prior to the event to make notes on but will also receive an amended copy after the event so that they can see the co-constructed changes made during the presentation.
