Did you know vocabulary at age five is the most important factor affecting literacy at age 11?
Children from the poorest 20% of society are already a year behind with spoken vocabulary by 5 years of age.
Without support these children fall further and further behind contributing to children with poor vocabulary skills being twice as likely to be unemployed once they reach adulthood.
Word Aware is a whole school approach full of practical and inspiring ideas that can be easily applied by busy classroom practitioners to develop both spoken and written vocabulary.
Introduction to Word Aware course is taking place on Thursday 17th October 2019 in Chippenham, Wiltshire. Cost: £65 per delegate. Booking via Eventbrite. Click on this Word Aware section for more information and to book.
