Inspiring Writers KS2
This course has been updated for 2017-2018 using new books and teaching sequences.
Teachers on this course will explore the writing process in KS2, including ways to develop classroom literacy environments and routines for writing that to support children as writers. They will look closely at the important contribution made by quality texts and the use of creative approaches to develop language, imagination and structure thinking in preparation for writing.
Teachers will have the opportunity to write across a range of genres to explore the importance of modelled writing. The course will also explore how to make writing a cohesive experience, including how to embed vocabulary, grammar and spelling in a text based unit of work.
Teachers will gain:
- An understanding of the writing process and how writing develops for children at different stages
- Knowledge of how to plan for writing across genres in a text based unit of work showing children how to write for purpose and with an audience in mind
- An awareness of how to contextualise the teaching of grammar and spelling in a context rich approach
- A high quality text and teaching sequence to immediately implement aspects of the course in the classroom
"It has completely changed my method of teaching both writing and grammar. I've used the text for a whole term and my class have been entranced by it. They have produced amazing writing and it is already having a knock on effect throughout our school."Teacher, 2017
