Kyra Training Centre
We are delighted to have James Durran here back at Kyra Teaching School and can’t wait for him to work with teachers from across the county to share his approaches to teaching writing in primary schools.
This highly practical day will explore a range of approaches to the teaching of writing, focusing on the design of teaching sequences which integrate reading, writing and the explicit teaching of grammar. It will suggest ways to build children’s explicit knowledge about language and text, while ensuring that they are developing as confident, independent writers, in a culture which values enjoyment.
James has been a teacher of English, media and drama for twenty-four years and is a local authority adviser in North Yorkshire. His blog: https://jamesdurran.blog/ has recently become a source of invaluable reading resources for teachers across the county as he offers a clear structure for learning and ways of overcoming the challenge of assessment for whole class teaching.
