NQTs: Learning about maths teaching through studying lessons - KS1

There is much that can be learnt from studying lessons, noticing teaching decisions and considering the impact of these decision on learners. For new teachers, the study of a lesson can be enhanced by listening to experienced teachers discussing their observations and then reflecting on this discussion.

These days will provide NQTs with an opportunity to observe a lesson alongside experienced teachers, listen to the teachers discuss their observations of the lesson and then discuss their own observations with peers. It is an opportunity to consider the intention, implementation and impact of teaching within a single lesson.

Closing the EAL Gap Conference: Raising the Attainment of Bilingual Learners

Closing the EAL Gap Conference: Raising the Attainment of Bilingual Learners

EAL learners will need significant and intensive catch-up support to close an attainment gap that has been intensified by the national Covid-19 lockdown. They may have had a limited or lack of exposure to a broad range of English language, including the academic language needed to be successful across the curriculum.

When teaching pupils with English as an additional language, building vocabulary is key to progressing their level of English in all skills. Our keynote speaker, Dr Victoria Murphy, will talk about the importance of addressing the EAL Word Gap.

Join us for this year’s English as an additional language Conference for brilliant presenters and workshop leaders. The conference will include stimulating presentations on a combination of research-based best practices and approaches, as well as opportunities for workshops and discussions.
