SPRING 2021 Transforming Learning Across the Curriculum

For primary teachers, secondary teachers and members of primary management teams.

What the training will cover

This ground-breaking online training will take you on an exciting journey demonstrating the power of Talk for Writing across the whole curriculum.

It will be particularly useful for teachers who already have some understanding of the Talk for Writing process for English. Pie and Julia will demonstrate how you can help all children internalise the key language features of any type of text. We’ll start off with entertaining, language games and model texts focusing on fantasy non-fiction, to develop the tune of the text. Drawing on the practice of highly successful primary schools in challenging areas, we will show how to build on these patterns so that the children can apply them to any subject in the curriculum, as well as showing how the process can be used to build the language patterns that are specific to particular subjects.

Help your class to talk like a historian, a geographer, a scientist and they will be able to write like one too!
