Class Act Cluster Workshops offer schools the opportunity for relevant, budget friendly twilight workshops, full of practical ideas relating to the Primary Framework for Literacy.
Class Act send a professional writer/storyteller/poet to your school to shower your staff with practical ideas for teaching poetry, narrative and non-fiction in the classroom.<
Each twilight workshop lasts for approx. 2 hours.
Workshops can be attended by all members of staff from your school and start from as little as £15 per person.
As these are cluster workshops teachers from other local schools are also invited to attend the workshop.
The majority of your teaching staff get training at the same time which creates energy and enthusiasm for the subject.
Very low fee, good for the budget!
An opportunity for your school to share good practice and network with other schools in your cluster group.
Workshops are packed with practical ideas that can be used immediately in the classroom.
Short sessions after school so no supply cover needed (could replace a timetabled staff meeting).
Workshops led by professional writers with lots of experience with working with children in schools.
The Primary Framework clusters Literacy objectives into three major themes – Narrative, Non–fiction and Poetry.
The workshops we offer link in to some or all of the following objectives in the Literacy strands:
Strand 8 – Engaging with and responding to texts
Strand 9 – Creating and shaping texts
Strand 10 – text structure and organisation
Strand 11 – sentence structure and punctuation
