Infusing Rich Vocabulary Throughout the Primary Curriculum

EYFS/KS1/KS2

Course Details

Vocabulary breadth and depth are two of the most important factors in helping pupils to understand what they read and to express themselves as mature, sophisticated learners. The challenge is immense: pupils need to learn and become fluent in at least 570 word families during their time in formal education.

This exciting new course from Chris will help you to infuse rich and sophisticated vocabulary from EYFS to KS2 into all areas of the curriculum. It will provide strategies for teaching vocabulary in reading activities, spoken and written communications.
