Helping children develop their own creative versions

Course Details

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, poems and non-fiction 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.

The course will:
Explore school grounds and local areas as a rich context for developing literacy skills, knowledge and understanding.
Consider resource provision and practical aspects of developing literacy opportunities outdoors, including creative approaches which facilitate higher order thinking.
Ensure that outdoor literacy is a frequent and regular part of any class...
