About this webinar

One of the barriers to children’s writing development is the frustration and anxiety they often feel when they start each writing activity. What if they make a mistake? How do they write interesting sentences, with correct spellings, while also thinking about cohesion and structure? Poetical structures can be a safer, collaborative approach to help your children past that blank page anxiety. This 1-hour webinar will:

  • Explore some of our favourite poetry structures

  • Show how they can facilitate high-quality writing across the curriculum

  • Explain how this can improve self-esteem and confidence.

Audience:

  • Teachers (KS1-2)

  • Teaching assistants

  • English and curriculum leads
