SAS - Meeting Age Related Expectations for Writing in Year 6 - (Stroud Association Schools Only)*

Event Code LIT/21/362
Event type Course / Online Training
Event Description

Year 6 is always a challenging year, possibly never more so than after the disrupted learning of the last two years. STA have confirmed that statutory assessment and moderation will return in 2022, meaning that a clear understanding of expectations and how to address these will be essential.


As such, this course will examine the Year 6 writing expectations in detail. The morning session will explore  grammatical subject knowledge and progression, sharing strategies for teaching these skills in context, as well as exploring how to develop composition. In the afternoon, delegates will explore how teaching sequences based around a high quality text can be developed, looking at examples of these and discussing planning more broadly. Throughout the day, there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and engage in discussion with colleagues.


The session is a must for Early Career Teachers and teachers who are new to Year 6, although feedback shows that experienced Year 6 teachers and subject leaders also find the session extremely valuable. The course is aimed at teachers but Teaching Assistants working in Year 6 may also find some aspects useful.


This is complemented by our courses on Meeting Expextations for Reading in Year 6 (code: LIT/21/275) and Greater Depth Writing in Upper KS2 (code: LIT/21/276).
