It’s a good time of year to recharge teaching batteries, and this course reminds us that best learning is exciting, hands on, fun and it delivers quick, relevant results. Working with the National Curriculum objectives, you will leave with dozens of great classroom ideas: twenty-five things to do with a poem, short and sweet ideas for micro-writing, tabletop drama activities for the faint hearted and engaging games for vocabulary, spelling and grammar.
Twenty-five things to do with a poem
Cut it up, draw it, cloze it, sing it…it’s all here, and you get to try some of the activities. A key part of this session is seeing how the activities relate to NC objectives and improve comprehension. This session includes both KS1 and KS2 examples.
Short and sweet: the value of micro-writing
Writing can be improved on a small canvas by in-depth teaching and instant practice. Highly relevant to the teaching of grammar, précis and more ambitious expression. This session includes both KS1 and KS2 examples.
A dozen ideas for using drama at the desk, all of them easy to use and a good way in to drama for first-timers. The activities are linked to curriculum subjects.
Try out and take home 10 different tabletop games that help to build vocabulary and can be adapted to suit your class.
£160 for 1 place, £300 for 2 places
