This three part course is aimed at Reception teachers who are concerned about the growing gender attainment gap in writing in their school. This course is designed to be used as a writing project within your school and attendance at all three sessions is required.
Would you like to provide exciting and inspiring story telling opportunities for your children that will ignite their imagination and motivation for writing? This practical course will enable you to discover how the use of small world play, drama and props, alongside cameras, can complement focused teaching to empower boys to write.
We will look at the processes involved in the teaching of writing, alongside the essential experiences needed to enable boys to always see themselves as writers.
You will have the opportunity to audit your environment (‘What gender is your classroom?’) and use this information to provide provocations which support all learners to develop and succeed.
To improve writing outcomes for boys through high quality teaching.
To consider the importance of the environment in stimulating children’s play experiences and how they might use this in their writing.
