“Inspiring – reminds me why I’m a teacher. Lab’s given me the chance to rewrite my entire curriculum” Schools partner 2016


This year’s Lab focuses on cross-curricular creativity through children’s literature in the classroom and creates a space in which to explore, experiment and learn.

Attendees will

  • choose four of six sessions from a programme of hands-on workshops (75 mins each)
  • share & learn from teachers’ experience of working with authors in the classroom
  • develop new, practical ideas for reading, writing and creativity across the AoLEs
  • make, draw, or write creatively themselves

Featured Authors include Helen Docherty, Polly Ho-Yen, Jay Hulme, Cheryl Moskowitz & Christopher William Hill
