Exploring High Quality Picture Books – Virtual Workshop

This online workshop will take place on Monday 29th November 2021 - 15:45 - 17:15

There is currently a renaissance in children’s literature and the array of picture books we now have to choose from is vast and varied, but are we always using picture books in a way that supports children to develop the knowledge and skills required by the English curriculum?  Ruth will share a variety of new picture book titles and authors to broaden delegates knowledge of picture fiction and picture non-fiction as well as exploring how such books can enhance children’s learning.

During this webinar we will examine:

  • The categories of books that fall under the title of ‘picture book’
  • How we can use words and images together to deepen children’s understanding of text
  • How to use picture books to enhance children’s understanding of story structure
  • The importance of children having the opportunity to illustrate their own writing

 

This webinar is  suitable for teachers, and leaders and in particular, those involved in English curriculum development
