One Day Online Course

A one-day year specific course covering practical strategies for using high quality children's literature as the primary approach to the teaching of English

This course will –

  • Identify how the Teach through a Text approach engages children as writers and immerses them in a literary world
  • Share examples of quality texts and well planned sequences used succesfully in primary schools 
  • Explore the progression of skills within the National Curriculum
  • Model how grammar, spelling and vocabulary contribute to a range of purposeful writing opportunities
  • Demonstrate how modelled writing is effective within a sequence of lessons


  • We will identify the 'Teach through a Text' pedagogy and the rationale for this approach
  • There will be a familiarisation with end of year group objectives and key assessment foci
  • An in-depth look at one text and a sequence of work and an exploration of other age-appropriate books
  • We will focus on personalisation and differentiation and show how to use modelled writing to support this
  • We will look at the importance of audience and purpose and explore the importance of publishing and book-making

Participants will receive –

  • A detailed planning sequence that support the teaching of purposeful writing
  • All training resources electronically

Existing school subscribers will receive 10% off any training places booked
