How can you make writing interesting?
A half-day workshop using artworks to contribute to non-narrative or imaginative writing skills in English programmes of study. Pupils will develop in: KS1 vocabulary for description or poetry; KS2 composition in writing through conjunctions or words to communicate feelings and abstract concepts in poems; KS3 presenting an argument through connectives or figurative language in poetry; KS4/5 as a full day workshop independent research leading to the organisation of ideas in a presentation or the use of prompts as a strategy to generate ideas and vocabulary for creative writing. The regional Articulation event (needs web link) could provide an inspiring destination for KS5 artwork interpretation.
Workshops have been designed to support learning in all key stages and will be adapted to meet attainment targets and support your classroom delivery.
