Quality Independent Writing at KS2 

For Primary Headteachers, English subject leaders and KS2 teachers.

Presented by Pie Corbett

How do you teach and guide children to develop as independent, imaginative writers?

This conference will explore the notion of ‘reading as a writer’ so children learn to draw upon great literature and well-crafted models as a resource for their writing. A key focus of the day will be using shared writing to demonstrate how to write powerfully and independently, drawing on what has been taught. The role of different strategies for using shared writing to teach children how to plan, draft, edit and evaluate their own composition will be highlighted; alongside exploring how to teach grammar to enhance meaning.

The final session of the day will run through a sequence of powerful ideas that engage children and stimulate great writing. There will be plenty of creative starting points for stories and poetry that grabs the imagination.

An introduction to Talk for Writing

For Primary Headteachers, English Subject Leaders and Primary Teachers

Presented by Pie Corbett

This conference will provide an introduction to the Talk for Writing approach with a focus on story writing. We will look at how to use assessment to focus teaching as well as developing a creative context that captures children’s imagination. We will consider the role of model texts as well as exploring linking grammar and spelling into writing. Pie will focus on shared and guided writing as central aspects of developing young writers. The day will end with using formative assessment to grow children’s ability to edit and improve their own writing. The conference will be packed with practical ideas for creative teaching and provide a whole school, coherent system for teaching writing.

The conferences all begin at 9.30 and end at 3.30. We always try to seat delegates around tables so that they have a surface to make notes on.
