The Pedagogy of Teaching English (years 2-6)


12 May 2021

(new date)



Children’s learning is far more effective when they understand where it is leading. As children develop as readers and writers, learning journeys need to be designed to provide opportunity for new learning but also to provide opportunity for them to practice skills they already have and to deepen their understanding.

During the course participants will:

  • develop their understanding of how the use of quality children’s literature as a starting point for children’s learning in English is an essential element in effective English teaching
  • develop their understanding and have practical experience of the key strategies used in an effective learning sequence for reading and writing
  • develop their understanding of effective planning of learning sequences

This one day course will be delivered by Penny Boardman

Venue: The BEACH, Bournville Primary School or online (tbc)              Time: 9.30am-3.30pm
