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

Multi-session course for

English Teachers

Presented by

Chris Cheal - Teaching and Learning Adviser (English)

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

  • Investigating approaches to audience, purpose and form in the wider curriculum

  • Exploring the importance of grammar in context

  • Investigating the role of dialogic talk in raising attainment in the wider curriculum

  • Developing approaches to curriculum access through reading, speaking and listening

  • Exploring tiered vocabulary and its key role in the wider curriculum

  • Sharing practical lessons with delegates with high quality literacy outcomes

The outcome of this course will be to help English leaders identify, and plan for, opportunities for cross-curricular English.  The main outcome will be to raise the standards of applied English, particularly cross-curricular writing, but will also focus on oral presentation and the use of reading skills and dialogic talk to facilitate higher quality outcomes in foundation subjects, whilst providing further evidence against English assessment outcomes (HAM). 

In advance of the course it would be helpful if delegates would read David Didau’s ‘Secrets of Literacy’ and consider the implications for cross-curricular writing.
