Covid-19 Staff Development

The Teamworks English Hub at The Greetland Academy is here to support you and your school’s professional development, during these unpresented times. To help you with this, we have pulled together some professional development opportunities, background reading and bite size videos for you to use.

We have organised the sections of focus into the 3 main aims of the English Hubs, these are, promoting a love of reading, supporting schools across the country to provide excellent phonics and supporting early language teaching. Furthermore, we have also included a section on supporting home learning that we hope you find useful.

Promoting a love of reading

Research rich pedagogies that provide a range of different articles, research and video linked resources to help develop the love of reading in your school.

Providing excellent phonics

The Education Endowment Foundation take a closer look at phonics in the EEF teaching, they also provide a complete Learning Tool Kit.

Developing excellent early language teaching

These resources encourage parents to develop language through talking about books.

This EEF guidance report provides evidence and informed ways to develop Literacy across Key Stage 1. This also includes a RAG rating for current provision and useful discussion questions.

The BBC offer a range of short and accessible videos with a focus on developing language in very young children. This will be of interest to those who are interested in early language acquisition and development.
