I Love to Write! led by Jo Howell


This practical and interactive session will provide you with the tools you need to inspire even the most reluctant of writers. Whether you work with individual pupils, small groups or a whole class, you will access materials that will be relevant to your role and enable pupils to progress.

Throughout the session we will:

  • explore useful structures and scaffolds that can increase confidence and develop independence
  • look at a range of stimuli that can excite pupils about the writing process
  • investigate different grammar activities that can support children to improve their writing

PLEASE NOTE: This event is a repeat of the 2016-17 session.
