Description

Words and Wisdom: a free conference for schools and Patrons of Reading in Haringey.

Thursday April 27 - 3.30/4.00* to 5.30 pm at Big Green Bookshop, 1 Brampton Park Road, Wood Green, N22 6BG

BOOK NOW!

Sign up now and learn how teachers, librarians, authors and storytellers can work together to improve outcomes for children and young people in our dynamic borough. Our focus in this event will be on the current challenges of teaching writing - and the inspiring local resources available to help us.

Conference programme:

Authors, storytellers and schools: the opportunities in Haringey. A presentation by Patrice Lawrence (Author of Orangeboy: Winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize for Older Children 2016 and shortlisted for the Costa Book Award 2016); Programme Manager at Spread the Word; Patron of Reading at Northumberland Park School).

Success in creative writing: how do we help children on their journey? Presentations from Haringey teachers on approaches to creative writing in primary and secondary phases (with a focus on the demands of creative writing in the new GCSE, and on writing at the transition).

Supporting reading for pleasure: how do we keep them reading? Children’s authors Tom Banks, Sam Enthoven and Karen McCombie share some of the inspiring strategies they have used as Patrons of Reading in Haringey schools.

The next chapter: how can members of Patron of Reading: Haringey Chapter continue to support Haringey schools? An informal discussion about schools’ needs in 2017 and beyond.

*school-focused content begins at 4.00pm. Light refreshments will be provided. Please note: Admission is free to all Haringey teachers, librarians and other staff from schools or other organisations within the local authority. There is a small charge for delegates from outside the borough.

Words and Wisdom is organised by Patron of Reading: Haringey Chapter, with the support of Spread the Word writer development agency and Big Green Bookshop Education CIC
