TEACHING SCHOOL ALLIANCE
For all EYFS, KS1 and KS2 teaching staff
Vocabulary, breadth and depth, are two of the most important factors in helping pupils to understand what they read and to express themselves as mature, sophisticated learners. This exciting new course from Chris Quigley will help you to infuse rich and sophisticated vocabulary from EYFS to Year 6 into all areas of the curriculum.
The challenge is immense: the two hundred most common words pupils read in most texts, are everyday words that they encounter in a range of situations. However, this means that they do not have the maturity and sophistication required to meet the demands of the National Curriculum. Pupils need to learn and become fluent, in at least 570 word families during their time in formal education, so that they can understand the mature language used in high-quality academic texts and express themselves as ‘articulate experts!’
