Very informative and full of lots of examples. Thank you
Lots of great ideas and positive ways to strengthen writing across the curriculum.
The course was thorough, provided a great variety of examples and activity ideas and the supporting research at the end was useful to read further. I also appreciate the planned breaks. Thank you.
Thank you. That was very interesting and thought-provoking. I am already rethinking my history and geography lessons and trying out some of the things you discussed.
I found the Writing to learn course very informative and well constructed. Thank you Chris Quigley for such an informative insight.
It is interesting and reassuring that this is the route that we have started down ourselves as a school. I will remain interested to see how some of those ideas break down and develop into a more practically fluid form later on... I realise this is the draft of the ideas at present. As with all your work Chris - this always leads to some great ideas for us to take forward.
Being encouraged to change the mindset for writing. Writing FOR learning makes complete sense - especially as we are a school that promotes the use of Rosenshine’s principles, metacognition and recall. I can really appreciate the value of this and can’t wait to see the impact of taking this approach further. Really appreciated the ‘real life’ examples of children’s work - really helped to see it in practice. Excellent quality - really detailed and thorough. Have left with practical strategies in order for this to be successful in our school - thank you!
The examples of the golden sentences and how they can be used across the curriculum were most useful along with the examples of children’s outcomes were the most useful parts of the day. Very useful and thought-provoking!
Really useful to think about writing as thinking and ways to support children to structure their writing. The sentence stems look really useful. As a school we have done a lot of work on our medium-term plans and knowledge organisers over the last year and it was good to see how this links and can help strengthen children’s retention of knowledge.
Great Course. Thank you. That was very interesting and thought-provoking. I am already rethinking my history and geography lessons and trying out some of the things you discussed.
I found the Writing to Learn course very informative and well constructed. Thank you Chris Quigley for such an informative insight.
It was useful to have time to think about the differences in writing within the curriculum and how to improve the children’s use of technical vocabulary and knowledge to make learning stick.
The resources and different ways that we can scaffold the children’s writing in order for them to have more knowledge across the curriculum was really useful. The course was well presented and the handouts will come in very useful.
Understanding the difference between learning to write and writing to learn was really helpful. Examples of activities and students' work was really helpful. Seeing teachers' marking with the children’s feedback was also useful.
