Course description: This brand new course comprises two autumn term sessions: an initial half day followed by a twilight. The course, suggested for Year 7 teachers and KS3 English leaders, will support with transition from Year 6 into Year 7, look at curriculum expectations, develop subject knowledge and explore the mastery approach to teaching English. Delegates will take away a unit of work based on an engaging text for teaching reading and writing for Year 7 pupils and have the opportunity to discuss assessment and moderate their pupils’ work alongside colleagues.

• Gain a clear understanding of Y6 expectations for writing and how to make a smooth transition into Y7
