Greater Depth in Writing at KS2
This half-day course has been designed to formulate strategies which will enable teachers to support and challenge Y6 writers, with the focus on securing the greater depth standard.
The aim of the course is for teachers to secure an understanding of pupils working at a greater depth in writing, with a focus on strategies to support and challenge. Whilst the course focuses on the Teacher Assessment Framework for the end of KS2, Year 5 teachers would also benefit from the session so that the approaches towards Greater Depth may be spread across the phase.
Suitable for KS2 teachers and English Subject Leads.
- consider what makes an effective writer
- secure an understanding of greater depth at the end of KS2 by clarifying each ‘Pupil can’ statement
- explore practical approaches, activities and resources to support pupils in developing towards each statement in order to secure this standard.
