Developing Greater Depth Writers

What makes a Greater Depth writer? How can we develop teaching and learning in school to enable more pupils to attain a GD standard?

Outline

Over three afternoons, this professional development will support the teaching and learning of writing that is 'Greater Depth' across Key Stage 1 and 2.

Description

Through collaborative working, we'll share good practice and ascertain the requirements of a Greater Depth writer. Content to include:
  • What makes a GD writer? What would you expect to see?
  • Understanding the expectations at the end of KS1 and KS2
  • Find out what other schools have done to attain GD writing
  • Approaches to editing
  • Developing the technical aspects of writing
  • The importance of quality writing stimuli
  • What does GD look like in Y1, Y3, Y4 and Y5

Between each session, teachers will have a task to complete in school to move targeted writers from expected to GD. One will have an English focus, the other cross-curricular. The process and outcomes will be discussed during the subsequent session.
