:: Love That Book: Inspiring Quality Reading and Writing Through Quality Literature ::
A great book is often the start of a magical journey in the primary classroom. Find the right book, and the rest simply falls into place. With the children captured by the words and images, the reading and writing opportunities naturally set flight from the text, creating not only impressive learning outcomes for pupils, but also a hunger for engaging with more great literature! This conference aims to hook teachers up with the perfect book for them and their pupils; a text that will light a fire of interest and imagination and will allow reading and writing to flourish. Throughout the day, Herts for Learning advisers will tempt delegates with tantalising texts and demonstrate the reading and writing opportunities that can be drawn from them. With creative examples of how these text can be used in the classroom, delegates will be sure to leave enthused about introducing their pupils to new text choices. Authors and illustrators will join us throughout the day to share their thoughts on what makes a great book, and give some insights into their own reading journeys. In addition, a high quality bookshop will be on hand to satisfy those book-browsing cravings. For those teachers who know that one way to a child's heart (and mind) is through a great book, then this is a conference not to be missed!

  • have up-to-date knowledge of the best children's literature currently being used in classrooms within Herfordshire and beyond
  • be equipped with a wealth of ideas for how to use brilliant texts back in the classroom to inspire quality reading and writing
