Glasgow: Talk for Writing in EY, P1 and P2 – Tuesday 22nd May 2018
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.
Glasgow: Talk for Writing in P3-P7 – Wednesday 5th December 2018
This conference will focus on practical strategies for developing children as storytellers, poetry performers and writers. We will look at the link between learning model texts, drawing on quality literature and developing the craft of writing. The conference will explore how to help children deepen their understanding of what makes good writing, building up a store of patterns and writing techniques. We’ll look at film clips of shared writing and consider how spelling and grammar can be taught purposefully in relation to writing. The day will provide teachers with a bank of imaginative ideas for developing children’s confidence as creative and inventive writers.
