The academic transition from primary to secondary is a significant step for pupils, embodied by the vocabulary explosion students are exposed to. Using data collected by the linguistic transition project at Leeds University, this session will explore the extent of the language challenge at Key Stage 2 and 3, and offer ideas for how schools and teachers can support students with the transition.

This session will include:

- data on the volume of words pupils are exposed to in the classroom at KS2 and 3
- the role of polysemous vocabulary
- practical strategies for teaching vocabulary in the classroom

Session leaders

Professor Alice Deignan, Head of School of Education, University of Leeds. Leader of research project Linguistic Challenges of the Transition” funded by ESRC

Marcus Jones, Literacy Lead, Huntington Research School
