Event description
Workshop with Michael Rosen & Helen Weinstein for CPD to support pleasure of reading & writing for KS1,KS2, KS3 & inspired by local history

About this Event

In this CPD workshop poet Michael Rosen and public historian Helen Weinstein will introduce teachers to ways of supporting school students to improve their reading and writing of both poetry and prose.

Historyworks makes a huge number of free resources with Michael Rosen for Cambridgeshire Schools , which we will showcase at the event.

All participants will receive two signed books from Michael Rosen, the latter 'The Pleasure of Reading' aimed at primary KS1 and KS2 and secondary KS3 teachers.

In the workshop teachers will be taken through Michael's guidance and top tips about how students can be encouraged to embrace reading and also improve their content of their writing by evaluating their narrative ingredients .

Helen Weinstein will showcase a variety of resources including history stories, songs and poetry, walking trails, local history stories narrated by Michael, devised by Historyworks for teachers to use both inside and outside the classroom, to enhance learning across the curriculum.

The main aim at the end of a long school day will be to inspire teachers, share practical top tips and free resources, have fun with words in poetry and prose, and also eat chocolate cake together!

The event is kindly hosted by Adrian Kidd, Headteacher at Trumpington Community College; and Rae Snape, Headteacher at Milton Road Primary , who will speak about 'My Cambridge' programme and the importance of giving all Cambridge school students cultural opportunities and cultural confidence as a life skill!
