This is an opportunity to meet and talk with colleagues from KS1 (particular focus on Y2) and discuss/moderate each other’s work. This session may be particularly useful for teachers new to Y2 or working in a single form entry school. Year 2 teachers who are expecting moderation this year may find the workshop particularly useful as it is being led by the KS1 Moderation Lead and supported by the team.

Keynote: Making best use of evidence
Lorwyn Randall & Helen Thorneycroft
Few would disagree that research has a role to play in how we approach teaching, but what does being ‘evidence-informed’ really mean in practice?
In this session, participants will explore the principles of making and acting on evidence-informed decisions in the classroom. From this, we can develop a greater understanding of the role that ‘best bets’ play in developing our practice and how to put evidence to work in order to support planning, delivery and impact-evaluation.
In order to understand what this looks like in practice, this session will dive deeper into the example of metacognition in order to exemplify the journey ‘from evidence to impact’.
Keynote: How to start building a classroom culture

? Scripting your responses
and more! By the end of this session all participants will have a clear idea of exactly they need to focus on, so the students can focus on the learning.
