Across three hours, Adisa and Jonny will draw on their experiences as poets and writing teachers, to explore how we can make our poetry provision as rich as possible in our classrooms and across our schools. Attendees will engage with up-to-date research on 'Writing for Pleasure' pedaogiges which enable pupils to become empowered, skilful independent writers; attendees will have opportunities to engage with practical activities taught in this way. Jonny will lead on different ways in which we might work with poetry and poetic texts in the contexts of reading and comprehension, whilst Adisa will lead on writing and the performance of the written word.

The whole afternoon will be a fast-paced and eminently useful introduction to pedagogical approaches.

Jonny and Adisa will share a wide range of poetry texts and anthologies which may be of use in the primary classroom - improving teachers' subject knowledge of children's literature is a proven way to have positive impact on the pupils. They will also share activities and approaches that they have used in their own Poetry Retreats with Newham primary schools over the last four years; since 2016, groups of schools collaborate, and Adisa and Jonny facilitate residential writing retreats in the New Forest and the South Downs.

All materials and tea/coffee included.

The drop-ins will provide childminders the opportunity to come together with their children to enjoy fun activities linked to their children’s learning and development and strengthen friendships and links between other local childminders.

A Childminding Development Officer from the Council will be running the sessions which will give all childminders regular access to support they may need.
We recognise that childminders may sometimes find it difficult to access services to enrich the needs of the children they care for. Therefore, we will be inviting professionals such as Area SENCOs (Special Educational Needs Coordinators), Curriculum Leaders, Speech and Language Therapists, Health Visitors, Safeguarding Advisors, Early Help Advisors and FEEE Officers to attend some of these drop-ins. A schedule of these visits is available on the Events and Training page of The Hub: http://wftradedservices.uk/Training.

The drop-ins are free for childminders registered for the Free Early Education Entitlement (FEEE). There is a small charge of £1.50 for the first child and 50p for each additional child for those minders who are not FEEE-registered. If you would like to know more about offering the FEEE and the registration process, please visit The Hub: https://thehub-beta.walthamforest.gov.uk/commissionedtodeliverFEEE
