Getting Ready for Writing

BOOK FOR 2017-2018

Supports English- speaking, listening and writing

In this lively and interactive exploration of this magnificent treasure house with a published children’s author, pupils will enjoy the opportunity to focuses on vocabulary enrichment, with particular attention to the five senses. Children are given personal ‘writer’s notebooks’ that they can use to record words and ideas while in the galleries. They are encouraged to move between gesture (‘word shapes’), drawing and writing, to remove perceived barriers to writing. The workshop allows for the differentiation of tasks for children at different stages of confidence in writing.
