Course outline

This exciting one day course will consider the planning, delivery and assessment of writing within the context of the Primary National Curriculum. It will provide participants with a raft of practical strategies to raise expectations, improve attainment, excite children and help them develop as mastery level writers. Develop a deep understanding of writing, essential for ‘working at greater depth’.

Discover how to:

  • Identify a ‘mastery level’ writer skill set and use this to audit strengths and areas for development
  • Examine in detail the process of meaningful target setting and link this to lesson objectives and effective marking
  • Move from a genre led approach to a skills based one
  • Explore the implications of the requirements of the Primary National Curriculum
  • Consider a writing assessment system based on Chris Quigley’s B.A.D. (Basic, Advancing, Deep) materials
  • Examine strategies to ensure we plan for depth of learning as well as breadth of coverage
  • Explore end of year expectations and link this to structure, consistency and progression
  • Consider the cross-curricular nature of the subject
  • Identify a range of practical strategies to inspire children to write.

    Greater Depth in Writing is an update of our Raising Standards in Attainment and Writing course.

Kind words

“All the delegates were in agreement that Andy is a truly inspirational speaker. The content of the day was extremely useful in highlighting new areas of work and really bringing into fresh focus new ideas about outside learning. The delegates came away energised and enthusiastic and really valued the training day. The booking has been excellent.
