Oakham TeachMeets

We are delighted to announce our new weekly online Teaching & Learning Clinic sessions for the Spring Term 2021:

Literacy Workshop Tuesday 9th March 3-4pm (Reading and decoding: Strategies for all: Michelle Titcombe and Julie Summers)

Week 9: 11th March

Vamping up vocabulary

In this clinic the T and L team will look at the topic of vocabulary. How do we help pupils expand their vocabulary and how can we support them with using and spelling new terms? We will discuss Hirsch and strategies for tier 2 and 3 vocabulary.

Literacy Workshop Tuesday 16th March 3-4pm: Reading for learning within the stages of the inquiry process (Darryl Toerien)

Week 10: 18th March

How do we teach pupils to write well?

In this clinic the team will address the challenging subject of teaching pupils to write ‘well’. We will discuss everything from sentence and paragraph construction to essay writing frameworks and the production of longer written pieces.

Week 11: 25th March

What is Oracy?

This clinic seeks to explore the issue of communication through speech for clarity and self-expression. We will give some practical strategies to help teachers develop this with pupils in the classroom.

All sessions take place on Teams from 13:05 to 13:35 and recordings are available to all Oakham staff. Please note that the timetable may be subject to change as we aim to respond to staff needs.
