Event description

Description

Come to Blackwell's Westgate this May half term for an exciting collection of events and workshops inspired by nature!

Join local author Julia Tedd for an exciting storytime and activities with her new book Night-time Cat, which is all about what her cat gets up to at night.

The event is free to attend and we reccomend it for children (and adults) aged 3+. Please do register so we know that your are coming.

Night-time Cat

Night-time Cat is a children’s book about a mischievous cat named Ginger who is awake and playful at night when everyone else is trying to sleep. The story leads the reader through several fun, but hypothetical, reasons why Ginger might be awake at night, before crashing back to the reality of Ginger’s real night-time antics.

Julia Tedd

Julia Tedd is a Developmental Researcher and Lecturer at the University of Oxford under the name Dr. Julia Badger. She has worked closely with children for over 15 years and much of her work focuses on helping every child reach his/her potential at school. Julia’s research has shown that some children struggle to learn and understand slightly more advanced grammar structures, such as the conditional, which can lead to confusion and misinterpretation in everyday life and in education (especially subjects such as science).

Night-time Cat, the first book in a planned series, subtly includes some slightly more advanced grammar structures – the conditional – to help expose children to these structures from an early age in a fun and engaging way. With exposure comes acquisition.

Julia hopes that as many children as possible will enjoy Night-time Cat at home and in school, which will help them to reach their potential.
