Key Stage 1


Early Writing Writing

This one day Teaching Writing course focuses on Years 1 and 2 and the crucial knowledge and skills children need to develop for writing at this point in their learning.  In line with the requirements of the National Curriculum, this course will support teachers to create an environment that encourages a wide range of writing while promoting the progress of children at the early stages of writing.

This course is one of four Teaching Writing courses tailored to the needs of children in Reception to Year 6, meaning teachers can undertake one course on its own or attend all four courses, to embed consistency of practice throughout their school. 

What you will learn:

This course has been specially tailored to the needs of Years 1 and 2 learners by our expert teaching team, and covers the following key areas:

  • How to choose and use texts to enrich vocabulary and inspire opportunities for writing.
  • How to identify the steps into writing fluency for children and support all children to make progress.
  • How to teach children to use and apply phonics in context of rich and purposeful writing experiences across a range of genres.

What participants will receive:

All of our writing courses include 1 high quality text with associated detailed planning to allow teachers to implement course ideas and strategies immediately in the classroom.

Learning outcomes:

Participants will strengthen their knowledge of how to support children at the early stages of writing fluency. Teachers will explore how to develop key knowledge and skills to support children to become confident in both transcriptional and compositional aspects of writing. Teachers will leave this course feeling confident to build children’s skills throughout Year 1 and 2 so they are able to enter KS2 with the techniques to continue to improve and develop their writing.

Book our face-to-face courses with full confidence that they will be run within government guidelines on health and safety and social distancing.  Like everyone, we are having to review the situation with regards to Covid-19 regularly. If government guidance changes then we will work with you to ensure that we can deliver an alternative that meets your needs and that gives your school the training you need.
