Following the success of their first virtual showcase this year, our Curriculum Hub partner Ilsham English Hub, are looking forward to hosting their next showcase:
Best Practice in the Teaching of Early Reading and Language
on Wednesday 9 December 2020 from 0915 to 1145
This event will provide participants with the opportunity to share best practice in the teaching of Systematic Synthetic Phonics whilst promoting a love of reading and will provide basic training on all the fundamentals of the Hub and how these match the new Ofsted Framework.
Showcase content will include the following:
There will also be films highlighting the best practice of phonics with time for questions with the Hub Lead and other members of the Hub Team.
As part of the showcase you will also need to complete and submit a short reflection form with your next steps.
Who is the showcase for?
Heads/Senior Leaders to accompany Reception/KS1 teachers with an interest in improving the teaching of Systematic Synthetic Phonics, practising phonics through decodable books and implementing the teaching of phonics into reading sessions.
Places are limited to two participants per school and some schools will be able to apply for funding of a maximum of £160 per school if they meet certain criteria-accessed through the self-referral data (N.B. this cannot be claimed if the school has previously claimed showcase money on previous years).
Following this showcase teachers will be able to access medium support workshops for free.
Further free support is also offered if schools meet certain criteria including audits, intensive partner school support and funding for resources and training.
Remember to state:
Please also complete the self-referral form below so that the Ilsham DfE National English Hub can prioritise support amongst schools where there are more applications than can be accommodated.
