Number of attendees


Key Stage 2



This one day Teaching Writing course focuses on Years 5 and 6 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 boost their children’s developed skillsets to inspire confident pieces of work that the children will enjoy creating.

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 5 and 6 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 increase children’s independence as writers.
  • Help children to understand how to use language and grammar for effect on a reader and be able to make meaningful choices around purpose, audience and form.
  • How to increase choice, voice and motivation as writers among your children.
  • Ideas for tasks that allow children to apply their knowledge of writing and appropriate register across a range of genres, based on a quality text.

What participants will receive? 

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

Learning outcomes:

Participants will strengthen their knowledge of how to support children to be mature and independent writers. Teachers will leave this course feeling confident to build children’s skills throughout Year 5 and 6 so they are able to write confidently and creatively, helping them develop the skills needed for the transition to secondary school and to write at greater depth.

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. iu7
