Developing an Approach to the Effective Teaching and Learning of Vocabulary in Early Years and Year One

This programme is delivered by Kelly Ashley and forms a piece of small-scale research using Kelly’s highly regarded ‘Word Power’ book. Kelly has worked both nationally and internationally in teaching, leadership and advisory roles. She currently works with schools and organisations across the UK, offering bespoke training and consultancy support in relation to all aspects of the primary English curriculum. Kelly’s keen interest in vocabulary and language development has led to the publication of her first book, ‘Word Power: Amplifying vocabulary’.

• The focus of Word Power training is aimed at FS/Y1 and how to ‘Power-Up’ the language environment, interactions and explicit instruction.

• Practical classroom resource that could be used to support this process with the schools as part of the research.

• Each day will be spaced with about 5-6 weeks in between to give teachers time to go away and trial ideas in their classroom. 

This programme can be extended to KS2 on request.
