What one class teacher said: "Best hands on, creative, inspirational workshop where children learnt more in two hours than I could possible have imagined. Lots of manageable and exciting activities which had immediate impact on children's creativity and their writing process. Would highly recommend your workshops... brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant!"

Literacy Shed Writing Workshops
Rob Smith, creator of Literacy Shed is now available to visit schools and deliver a day or 1/2 day of writing workshops individually tailored to your children and/or a specific topic.
Rob combines visual literacy skills with language acquisition to enhance the children's vocabulary which is then used to develop writing at sentence level. Children will be taught how to construct a range of sentences types which can be used in their writing.
Schools can book a workshop with a single class or a focus group of children from difference classes such as those who are reluctant writers or more able writers.
Whole Day £850
1/2 Day £450
Plus additional costs for local accomodation and travel
Writing after school inset is also available at a reduced rate £250 when booked to coincide with a workshop.
For additional details or to book email firstname.lastname@example.org
Target groups within your school.
- Pupil Premium children,
- G & T pupils,
- Pupils working below their expected level.
- Reluctant writers.
Rob tailors his sessions to engage pupils at their level in order to have maximum and immediate impact.
The use of short film and animations will give the children a stimulus from which to write a variety of text types. Using film allows children to experience 'a whole text' without the need for a sustained period of reading. The sessions also incorporate drama to bring the stimuli to life for the pupils involved, allowing for exploration of characters' thoughts and feelings.
Depending on the length of the session and the requirements of the class the children will create collaborative and independent pieces of writing and we will leave follow up tasks that the teacher can use if they wish.
Rob also delivers website building courses for pupils to create their own online learning portfolios - click here for details
