The price of £160 is for both parts of the course.

This two-part course aims to support Year 5 and Year 6 teachers by offering practical, creative approaches to maximising pupil engagement and attainment in the English curriculum and end of Key Stage 2 assessments.

This course is intended for teachers new to teaching in Year 5 or Year 6, as well as experienced Year 5/6 teachers looking to refresh their practice.

The course will:

  • understand the requirements of the Year 5/6 Programme of Study for English and the associated assessment frameworks, including national tests
  • unpick the programmes of study for reading, grammar and writing, offering practical and enjoyable teaching approaches
  • explore creative ways to develop and maintain pupils' independence, motivation and enthusiasm in reading and writing
  • develop effective strategies to prepare pupils for the end of Key Stage 2 tests
  • acquire activities and takeaway resources to support best classroom practice
