NEW: Talk for Writing – Poetry and Short-burst Writing
The teaching of poetry and short-burst writing sits at the very heart of a rich and imaginative English curriculum. It teaches children to consider the purpose of their writing, identifying language and writerly tools that establish a desired mood or effect. It also connects a child’s understanding of literature to their own written compositions, training them to raid their reading for writerly tricks and techniques. The course will be rich in tried and tested practical strategies to implement in the classroom that will enrich and deepen written outcomes and enjoyment.
