Cross-curricular Writing: Embedding English Across the KS2 Curriculum
How do we embed literacy across the curriculum to communicate and facilitate learning and raise standards of spoken and written English out of literacy lessons?
This course will focus on practical ideas and examples to facilitate and embed literacy skills, particularly writing, in the wider curriculum. Building on research around vocabulary building and the use grammar in context, it will also strengthen standards of oral and written communication as well as developing reading skills in foundation subjects by:
• Examining why the ability to communicate learning is essential in all subjects
• Modelling writing in foundation subjects and finding a writer’s ‘voice’ for an authentic purpose
