Maximising Success in English for the 21/22 Year 6 Cohort – Session 1 of 2

Wednesday, September 29, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

As a result of a disrupted year of learning, pupils will have missed out on significant building blocks in their learning in both Reading and Writing.

In addition, there is a large and concerning attainment gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged pupils. This gap is estimated to be the equivalent of seven months learning.

In this two-session online course, delegates will explore the statutory requirements for assessing children’s attainment in Reading and Writing and consider strategies for maximising success in both reading and writing.

Led by Emma Adcock, VNET Training and Research Director, this course will thoroughly unpick the requirements of teacher assessment of reading and writing and consider how to incorporate relevant assessment opportunities into teaching.


Year 6 teachers.
