SPRING 2023 – Talk for Writing in Science

For primary teachers and members of primary management teams.

What the training will cover

This ground-breaking two-session course is based on how applying the Talk for Writing approach to science helps children to engage successfully in scientific investigations progressively building their skills so that by Year 6 they not only talk like scientists but love science.

The imitation, innovation, independent application process that underpins Talk for Writing, with its emphasis on talking your way to understanding, has been found to enhance children’s learning in all subject areas. It not only supports retention of key content, alongside the practical application of whatever skills have been learnt, but it also enables children to express their learning coherently.

The sessions will feature images and video clips of science investigations in two leading Talk for Writing primary training schools, Warren Road in Orpington and Yew Tree Community School in Birmingham.
