For KS2 teachers and Leaders of Reading

Aim: to improve pupils’ reading comprehension and standards at the end of KS2

During the subject knowledge sessions, delegates will:

· Develop a clear understanding of effective diagnostic strategies to identify pupils’ gaps in reading based on strong subject knowledge of reading comprehension

· Focus on the importance of teaching and broadening vocabulary implicitly and explicitly during reading

· Be able to teach linked shared and guided reading sessions focused on teaching comprehension skills and the wider reading requirements of the National Curriculum for English

· Understand how to reduce the cognitive load through explicit teaching of reading strategies

· Apply the principles of direct instruction through teacher modelling, scaffolded practice and independent application of skills

During the leadership sessions, delegates will:

· Develop leadership skills including preparing for a reading deep dive

· Understand the progression in reading across KS2, within and across year groups, through curriculum mapping.

· Explore secure teacher assessment in reading - both formative and summative
