Event Details

Sunningdale School has partnered with Thinking Talking to host Word Aware training.

Well developed vocabulary is required to:

· Understand concepts in subjects such as maths and science
· Develop reading comprehension
· Write expressively
· Succeed academically and in life

The National Curriculum states: ‘Pupils’ acquisition and command of vocabulary are key to their learning and progress across the whole curriculum. Teachers should therefore develop vocabulary actively, building systematically on pupils’ current knowledge.’ This course guides participants through that systematic approach.
Spoken vocabulary at five impacts on reading comprehension at fifteen years of age. Yet children from the poorest 20% are already a year behind with spoken vocabulary by 5. There are many children in our classrooms who need support.

Word Aware is a structured whole school approach to promote the vocabulary development of all children. Focussed on whole class learning, the approach is of particular value for those who start at a disadvantage – including children with Special Educational Needs and those who speak English as an additional language.

This approach is full of practical and inspiring ideas that can be easily applied by busy classroom practitioners to develop both spoken and written vocabulary. Course participants will gain resources and ideas to apply immediately.

This course is suited to class teachers, Senior Leadership, SENCOs, Specialist Teachers, EAL teachers, Speech and Language Therapists and Educational Psychologists.

This training costs £120 – you will receive an invoice following confirmation of your place on the programme.
