Literacy Workshops in Doncaster, South Yorkshire
Please note that whilst we are based in Doncaster, we provide literacy workshops across the country. Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Warwickshire, and the Manchester and Birmingham areas.
We start with an animal observation. Children can sketch and watch the animals in their classroom, and we can provide key vocabulary cards for labelling or wow adjectives to stimulate the use of exciting language or animal-themed connectives cards to support sentence structure.
Our literacy workshops aim to inspire pupils to read for pleasure and to develop their writing skills in different genres.
They can then contribute to a question and answer session about what they have seen. The session ends with animal handling, and pupils each decide which animal they want to write about.
Teachers can use our sessions as a starting point for both fiction and non-fiction writing. Some possibilities could include, in KS1: instructions, non-chronological reports, recounts, or even riddles.
Then, in KS2: a newspaper report, acrostic poetry, explanation texts or persuasive writing.
