Getting children interested in writing can be a challenge. This workshop gives children some fun activities that will lead into creative writing. Working with one class for an entire morning around a topic or text, we would explore writing through physical activity, Drama and collaboration. This workshop will inspire, enthuse and motivate children to write.
Cost FROM £250 for a morning (one class) or FROM £350 for a whole day (2 classes). Two days would cost FROM £600 and three days FROM £900. Writer in residence arrangements can be organised too.
Story Boxes are a wonderful resource but often finding a spare adult to use them to their full potential is difficult. The Story Box Project could be the answer to this problem! This is an exciting opportunity to develop speaking and listening skills and writing skills over a longer period of time with your pupils.
One morning per week for a 6 week period, I would come to your setting and work with three groups of children (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2). The objective of the project is to promote writing through speaking and listening activities. This is particularly useful when trying to encourage boys writing. For further details please get in touch.
This project is charged from £1500 for the 6 week period.
Say it to Write it!
This workshop offers delegates some practical ideas for developing crucial speaking and listening skills. These include the use of puppets and Small World, Story Umbrellas, Story Boxes, Drama/movement and music. Delegates will then be shown how to use these skills to encourage/improve and develop creative writing. These skills can be used in EYFS, KS1 and KS2 and will, in fact, encourage staff to develop their own creative writing skills.
