Can you relate to this...?

I have a child in my class who struggles with writing. Their maths and reading skills are fine, they just struggle with sentences.

 

Some of the lower-ability children in my class are struggling. They don’t often read at home and have poor vocabulary.

A child in my class gets frustrated during lessons. They don’t like literacy lessons and become disinterested.
 

We have a 3 year old who gets very frustrated with their lack of communication.

The teenagers I work with use 'um', 'er', 'thing', 'stuff', instead of real words.

The students in our secondary setting swear instead of using more appropriate words.

Do you dream of your students using a wide and varied vocabulary in their written work?

Imagine your pupils being able to recall the new words you've taught for your subject, especially when you're being observed by the SLT!

Impress the Ofsted Inspector with your class demonstrating their use of vocabulary which is age-related or even at greater depth!
