WORKSHOP 1: Weaving Metacognition into the Primary Curriculum
The Great Dunmow Primary Consortium have been exploring how we can use the principles of metacognition to support our pupils’ learning. Initial research findings encouraged us to explore pedagogy to improve and develop the students’ resilience, including self-help strategies. Having introduced the ideas of metacognition to our pupils we are now looking to embed this across the curriculum. This interactive workshop will explain the process, and feedback our initial findings from the past year whilst posing questions to engage in delegates in discussion and to help take our work forwards.
Presenters: Charlotte Hart (Felsted Primary School) & Hannah Raban (Rodings Primary School)
WORKSHOP 2: Retrieval Practice . . . in Practice
This workshop will explore the concept of retrieval practice and its context within a knowledge rich curriculum. The workshop aims to provide practical examples of how retrieval practice can be used in the classroom.
Presenters: Krista Carson (Soham Village College) & Katie Neville-Jones (Bottisham Village College)
WORKSHOP 3: The Perfect Curriculum: is it achievable and what would it look like?
At a recent conference, Amanda Spielman stated that; ‘a high quality education, built around a rich curriculum, is a matter of social justice’ (26th Jan 2019, The Wonder Years Knowledge Curriculum Conference). This workshop will use this statement to explore what a ‘perfect’ curriculum might look like using thinking and practical examples from across the profession. We will conclude by opening up the debate to delegates and discuss what is achievable and what it might look like in our individual settings.
Presenter: Rebecca Pentney (East Cambs and Fenland Research School Lead)
