This twilight session will use the NCETM’s ‘Five Big Ideas to Develop Mastery’ to develop teachers’ understanding of the progression in the bar model from Reception to year 6.
Science can be a fantastic vehicle to support English skills but it should not be to the detriment of time spent doing practical science. Through practical activities we will explore what links can be made and consider what science is being taught and what English is demonstrated. We will discuss expectations in terms of recoding in science.
· Teaching, learning and assessment in PSHE (adapted as needed through the year)
· Comparing and contrasting British Values and Modern Britain
RSHE Focus: ‘Families and People who Care for Me’ and ‘Caring friendships’.
The morning sessions will provide local and national updates and address key issues of interest for English Subject Leaders.
The afternoon sessions will continue to explore current areas of focus including: moving vocabulary teaching forward, narrowing the gap and early reading.
This event is an opportunity for Subject Leaders to keep up to date with national and local priorities as well as learn from best practice. Subject Leaders work collaboratively to develop leadership skills and there are opportunities for new learning in line with national and local priorities, as well as input from nationally recognised speakers.

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.
Teaching Assistants will develop their English subject knowledge in line with whole-school priorities. An outline of the session will be provided when the focus is agreed at English Subject Leader meeting.
This session is led by the KS2 Moderation Manager/ Lead and allows colleagues to discuss and refine their assessment judgements in writing by reviewing samples of writing from their own pupils and those of KS2 colleagues in other schools.
