Improving Reading through teaching of Poetry and Non-Fiction text (KS1)
As reading is a focus for many schools across Portsmouth this Academic Year, we are pleased to announce that Heather Rushton will be delivering training for the Portsmouth Teaching School Alliance. Her expertise include:
Former Ofsted Inspector
DfE Improvement Advisor
School Improvement lead
The focus of this session will be to develop your teaching practice using non-fiction and poetry texts. Heather will take you through a teaching journey using one text, intertwining skills that need to be explicitly taught; showing you how to develop the children's reading for sense and fluency. She will also include techniques for skimming and scanning, enabling children to retrieve facts from information text.
She will also share with you a range of non-fiction and poetry text.
