The sessions below were recorded in the first lockdown and can be viewed free on YouTube.
This first session summarises the journey to re-writing a KS3 curriculum in English. It covers a 3 year journey of moving to a conceptual approach and sequencing the learning, moving towards a knowledge rich-curriculum, and completely changing the homework system,
The following session looks more specifically at a KS3 assessment system. It includes assessing knowledge through knowledge organisers, formative and summative assessments, and different types of feedback.

I have started a new series of mini 10 minute videos analysing key moments in commonly-taught texts. They will be shared below.
