Implementing Whole School Literacy – July 2018 – “A great course – I received lots of information and lots of useful strategies . My head is ready to burst, but in a good way! The ideas will help me implement a new whole school literacy policy. This will be launched as whole school CPD and through my newly assembled Literacy focus group.”
Teaching Writing – NATE Conference – Workshop Feedback Christine Thomas – June 2018
“I thoroughly enjoyed the session and it reminded me of how to teach more creatively, but still get great results. The suggestions about marking and assessing were reassuring and I am going to go back to school and remind them how English should be marked – in a way that does not totally demoralise the students!”
“Very good techniques and resources given. Useful to see how different forms of media can be used to enable learning.”
“Lots of different examples of how to teach literature, creative writing and non-fiction writing in an integrated and engaging way.”
“It was great to get the opportunity to try the writing tasks ourselves.”
“I will integrate literature teaching with creative writing and where possible, nonfiction writing too.”
“It was really interesting to get a context of how writing can be taught, as well as get an insight into the demands of the current English curriculum, within England.”
“as well as providing some great ideas for creative teaching, it was useful to put myself in the position of the students and empathise with the demands of the creative writing task.”

‘Lots of interesting topics discussed, it felt relevant and tailored to the group. – Resources and ideas for teaching language through literature were particularly useful – I have already been thinking of my own ideas.’
‘Lots of practical ideas for linking language and literature – Rethink the way I approach language teaching – I will be organising a planning session with my department.’
‘Sharing good practice. Sharing up to date information from DFE, exam boards and Ofqual. – I have eleven action points that I want to implement when I get back to school – these will be shared with the various teams I line manage and share with my DH – my line manager.’
‘Being made more aware of the negatives of 100% examinations and sharing other experiences. – Then points made on the ppt will be shard and delivered to colleagues – cascading to my peers.’
‘Putting things into perspective – very useful for preparing next year’s scheme of work – I like the refocusing of teaching the language through the literature. – The ideas will be shared with the department and through in school CPD.’
