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
