Belfast – An introduction to Talk for Writing

For Primary Headteachers, English Subject Leaders and Primary Teachers

Presented by Pie Corbett

This conference will provide an introduction to the Talk for Writing approach with a focus on story writing. We will look at how to use assessment to focus teaching as well as developing a creative context that captures children’s imagination. We will consider the role of model texts as well as exploring linking grammar and spelling into writing. Pie will focus on shared and guided writing as central aspects of developing young writers. The day will end with using formative assessment to grow children’s ability to edit and improve their own writing. The conference will be packed with practical ideas for creative teaching and provide a whole school, coherent system for teaching writing.

Price per delegate: £195.00 +VAT

Discount: 10% discount on ALL places when a school books more than one person on the same course.

Talk for Writing in EY and KS1

For Primary Head Teachers, English subject leaders, Nursery, Foundation and KS1 Teachers

Presented by Pie Corbett

This conference will focus on practical strategies for developing young children as storytellers and writers. We will look at how to help children learn a bank of stories through story mapping, using actions and deepening understanding through play. From Nursery to year 2, we will explore approaches to helping children develop their own creative versions of well-known stories and poems both orally and through writing. Using examples and film clips of shared and guided writing, the conference will also consider how to help children create their own imaginative stories. These conferences have previously sold out rapidly and proved to be very popular as they demonstrate how to teach the National Curriculum in an imaginative and effective way.

The Roving Books Children’s Bookshop attends all of Pie Corbett’s Talk4Writing conferences in order to give delegates the opportunity to see and buy a wonderful range of children’s books and Talk for Writing publications by Pie Corbett and Julia Strong.

The conferences all begin at 9.30 and end at 3.30. We always try to seat delegates around tables so that they have a surface to make notes on.
