Connecting up language learning around the country:

The Association for Language Learning‘s ALL Connect project provided CPD for teachers in KS2 and KS3 to support the new programmes of study at Key stages 2 and 3, offering free face to face and online training on major themes such as speaking, writing, grammar, transition and progression to those working in mainstream education. Training was provided at a local level to colleagues from the primary and secondary sectors, offering participants the opportunity to train and network with peers and to share best practice together.

The materials developed are now provided here, and are freely available for any teacher to use. They must not be used for commercial reasons such as training sessions where attendees are charged a delegate fee by a trainer/training organisation. They may not be used without acknowledgement of the original source. If you are using them for training purposes please email info@all-languages.org.uk to let us know, as it is of particular interest to us to know about coverage. You can find out more about the project on our website.

ALL Connect: KS2 Writing

ALL Connect Logo

Welcome to the ALL Connect KS2 Writing Module

There are five themed modules for KS2 teachers of languages and two KS2-KS3 modules. The modules are not sequential, and are presented here in four formats:

  • A Powerpoint presentation for use in a training session
  • A pdf for Trainers to use in preparing for a training session; this includes the notes pages that accompany the Powerpoint screens
  • A Powerpoint presentation for selfaccess by a practising teacher or trainee (this version does not include discussion and has reduced notes) in case you wish to view the Powerpoint separately from the Notes
  • A pdf of the Self Access notes page – you might like to access this version in order to have the Notes visible at the same time as the screens.

The materials of this module are aimed at an audience of teachers who will be teaching pupils at KS2. Languages of exemplification in the materials and follow-up modules are French, German and Spanish. These materials are freely available for any teacher to use. They must not be used for commercial reasons such as training sessions where attendees are charged a delegate fee by a trainer / training organisation. They may not be used without acknowledgement of the original source. If you are using them, ALL would be very pleased to hear from you, as it is of particular interest to us to know about coverage. Please email info@all-languages.org.uk to let us know.

 

The format of the module is as follows:

A presentation for delivery by a Lead Teacher to a workshop of teacher participants. The workshop duration is planned to be two hours, in which the presentation and accompanying materials / resources and activities should be presented.

Teachers using the self-access version should also expect to take around the same length of time.

Following delivery of a workshop, teacher participants can undertake independent study by accessing four follow up modules, which could be pursued over four consecutive weeks following the workshop. These are housed on this site and  can be found by scrolling right down this page.

For additional resources, activities and case studies, please see the ALL Writing & Translation Wiki.

 

Materials in sequential order:

You will need to download these materials  when you click through to them. If you are a Lead Teacher we suggest you do so before you deliver a workshop session.

For Lead Teachers to deliver to teacher participants: For teachers to access as self study:
  • KS2 Writing Module notes pages We suggest you access this version of the presentation as it gives instructions about how to deliver the session and also suggests where you might introduce activities to the teacher participants.
  • KS2 Writing Module (this is the version of the  presentation as teacher participants will view it).

 

  • KS2 Writing Module self-access – Powerpoint version: This is in case you wish to view the ppt separately from the notes. The notes below each screen suggest questions for professional reflection and exploration.

For use by teacher participants after either training route:

Teacher participants may wish to use the simple action plan following the module or any of the four follow-up modules. The action plan pro forma can be accessed here: KS2 Action Plan Writing
