Language and Grammar in a Rich Reading Curriculum - one-day training, INSET


This training day offers clear guidance for teachers across the key stages to create high quality grammar, punctuation, vocabulary and language provision in a rich reading curriculum.

It will strengthen practitioner knowledge and understanding of the subject knowledge and terminology in relation to grammar in line with EYFS 2014 and National Curriculum 2014.

Drawing on a range of high-quality children's literature, this training day will demonstrate the role high quality texts play in exemplifying language in use, the impact of authorial choices on the reader and how terminology can be introduced and consolidated in context.

Throughout the day, we will provide practitioners with ideas and resources for how to plan for children to make controlled choices in their own writing with form, purpose and audience in mind.

The training day will focus on the following key areas:

  • Progression in talk, reading and writing
  • The impact of rich reading provision on spoken and written language
  • Terminology and metalanguage in context
  • Subject knowledge of key concepts in grammar and punctuation
  • Making controlled and pragmatic choices in speech and writing

Individual schools wishing to partake in INSET days will have the option to select a date focused on this area. To book, please complete our booking enquiry form
