The Vocabulary Ninja Approach

07 October 2022 @ 09:30 - 13:30
It’s all about the mentality towards achieving the goal to improve outcomes for all pupils.

Summary of the event:

Vocabulary Ninja is used across the UK and the world, inspiring pupils, teacher and whole schools. It’s all about the mentality towards achieving the goal to improve outcomes for all pupils. Embedding rich vocabulary throughout school isn’t about intensity, but consistency of the approach, the power of marginal gains and the accumulation of each learning moment; its language, its experiences, its understanding.

The Vocabulary Ninja Approach:

Integrate Reading and Writing

  • Ensure vocabulary is at the heart of reading and writing, using high-quality texts with rich vocabulary to improve outcomes.

Embed SPaG Knowledge

  • Embed a simple, clear and whole school SPaG system that requires zero planning, ensuring pupils can master the basics in context.

Curriculum Vocabulary

  • Be directed to a vast library of curriculum resources and suggested classroom teacher, subject leader and SLT actions that should be undertaken in relation to vocabulary and your curriculum.

The Word of the Day

  • Outlines the Word of the Day and how it works, outlining how to access resources, use them in each Key Stage effectively.

Supercharge Class Display

  • Understand how classroom display of vocabulary can underpin everything you do and promote pupil independence.

Research Informed Systems

  • Have confidence in systems supported by research and current literature which have been simplified into classroom routines that work for both teachers and pupils.
