“We know that vocabulary at age five is a key predictor of whether a child from a disadvantaged background is likely to ‘buck the trend’, succeed at school and become socially mobile in later life. And yet on average, by this age, disadvantaged children are significantly further behind in vocabulary than in any other area of cognitive development.’”(DFE, 2018)

Course Outline

With the continued Ofsted focus on developing pupils’ vocabulary early, this course aims to support schools in enhancing their approaches in reading, writing and spoken language.

Using proven examples of effective practice, this session will provide a balance of academic and practical approaches to ensure a wider vocabulary in Key Stage 1.

Key Outcomes

  • Delegates will have a range of strategies that they can implement with their pupils
  • Pupils use of vocabulary will be enhanced and make a positive impact on both reading comprehension and the quality of their writing.
