Vocabulary conference with Jean Gross CBE: The wonder of words

Vocabulary conference with Jean Gross CBE

Wednesday 6 November 2019 – Mercure Southgate Hotel, Exeter – 09:15 – 15:30

This conference will be exploring the importance of addressing the word gap early but also to explore ways we can continue to develop children’s vocabulary throughout their education whatever their starting points.  From the current work Babcock LDP have been carrying out, it is clear that it is never too late to start igniting children’s interest in words and helping them grow and develop a broad, varied and rich language knowledge that will underpin their learning throughout their lives.

Key reasons to attend:

  • develop your understanding of how vocabulary underpins all areas of learning and how this can be developed
  • hear practical ideas and examples of how to put vocabulary teaching into practice at all phases
  • explore how a whole school strategic approach to vocabulary teaching can support improved outcomes for children
