Planning a Text Based Curriculum in Years 1 and 2 - Webinar
This webinar will investigate what a text based unit looks like in practice in a Key Stage 1 classroom.
Our expert teaching team will share how these units can be used to support children as developing readers and writers including contextualised opportunities for phonics, language and grammar and increasing children’s knowledge of reading in different contexts and writing for different purposes, thereby raising engagement and attainment in reading and writing.
We will also look at how units can work together to provide a rich and comprehensive curriculum that enables progress and attainment throughout Key Stage 1 and into Key Stage 2.
The webinar will focus around the high-quality text, Humming Bird by Nicola Davies (Walker).

- An understanding of what readers and writers in Years 1 and 2 should know and be able to do
