Moving On – Making Progress in English (3 days)

November 7 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

Followed by February 13 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

Followed by June 19 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

Just Imagine and Scott Wilkie are delighted to partner to offer a series of short courses focussing on helping children make progress in English from Year 1 to Year 6.

Each course focuses on a different genre and is organized around a set of principles, at the heart of which is dialogic teaching.

Main teaching focus includes:

  • Progress Through reading and writing for pleasure
  • Planning the learning journey through text selection and teaching purpose (core texts and supplementary texts)
  • Making formative assessments for learning
  • Improving dialogic practice.
  • Metacognitive strategies

Participants will not only gain valuable insights from the courses, but also have the unique opportunity to visit classrooms and engage in reflective discussions, fostering a sense of community and support in their professional development.

This course will be held at Scott Wilkie Primary School, the UKLA Literacy School of the Year 2024, offering educators a unique and privileged learning experience.
