The challenge is immense: pupils need to learn and become fluent in at least 570 word families during their time in formal education so that they can understand the mature language used in high-quality academic texts and express themselves as ‘articulate experts’.
This exciting new course from Alex Bedford will help you to in-fuse rich and sophisticated vocabulary from EYFS to Year 6 into all areas of the curriculum. This is a research-based course where Alex will present you with evidence gathered by cognitive scientists and vocabulary development researchers over many years.
