The Literacy Focus: Reading & Writing at Key Stage 2

Course Details

The new proposed curriculum recommends that children should apply their literacy skills confidently and competently in their learning and everyday contexts. They should convey their ideas and opinions clearly and respond creatively and critically to a wide range of information and ideas. They should learn how to read fluently and listen and respond to texts of all kind; material which will arouse their interest in, and develop a love of books and reading.
The course will:

Suggest a range of exciting, challenging and appropriate texts for use in the classroom to encourage young readers and act as models for their own early writing. This will be a practical session with ideas and strategies for teachers to use in school.

Participants will be given:

An increased understanding of the process of early writing.
An opportunity to view and assess a range of appropriate resources to use in the classroom.

In addition, he has published a wide range of poetry, short stories, nonfiction material, plays and academic texts. His early memoir ‘Road to the
Dales: The Story of a Yorkshire Lad’ published by Penguin, was an instant best-seller."
