Deep Diving Into Early Reading
Thursday, November 25, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
This virtual workshop, led by Emma Adcock and Emma Spiers (The Learning Lady), takes you step by step through the Early Reading Deep Dive process, in the role of an inspector!
‘Inspectors must focus on how well pupils are taught to read as a main inspection activity. They will pay particular attention to pupils who are reading below age-related expectations (the lowest 20%) to assess how well the school is teaching phonics and supporting all children to become confident, fluent readers.’ Ofsted School Inspection Handbook 2021
This virtual workshop is crammed full of case studies, video footage and real-life examples to build expertise in a virtual situation. You will be equipped with the tools, techniques and strategies you need to drill down into your own Early Reading and Phonics provision through the eyes of a child in your school.
