Session 8 – Supporting vocabulary instruction This series is designed to enable Teaching Assistants to support the addressing of gaps in learning in reading, writing and maths which is so...
One of the legacies of the pandemic is the widening of the gap for many disadvantaged groups of children. This challenge exists alongside many other challenges that schools already faced including curriculum, finance, SEND and behaviour. In 2022/23 VNET will focus on supporting schools in developing strategies to address these gaps and challenges and to continually improve the ‘Quality of Education’ in our schools.
For maximum impact in the classroom the focus will be on:
✓ Oracy – Oracy is the ability to articulate ideas, develop understanding and engage with others through spoken language.
✓ Developing Teaching Excellence – Using tried and tested strategies to ensure responsive classroom teaching to deliver great outcomes for children.
✓ Behaviour – Practical and accessible work with teachers and TAs to ensure that children are supported to be in the best place for learning.
✓ Curriculum – Meet the challenge of ensuring that pupils know more and remember more and therefore are making progress as described by Ofsted.
