Day 1: An introduction to a five phase teaching sequence using planning cards and  with quality texts at the heart. I will lead the training, supported by a Leader of Excellent Practice (LEP) or Specialist Leader in Education (SLE). It will cover engaging shared reading activities and will show how texts can be used to support the teaching of text structure; punctuation and grammar in context and the planning, drafting, editing and publishing of writing.
