I am excited to share that DramEd has recently engaged with a practice called Talk for Writing, developed by author, Pie Corbett and deputy Head of the National Literacy Trust, Julia Strong.
Together both Pie and Julia have developed a number of books which aim to teach, teachers, practitioners and families how to inspire reading, literacy and communication in a way that works and is fun and stress free. Where regardless of where they live, families’ income or nationality, no child is left behind. Like us, Pie believes there should be no excuses, 100% of children should know how to read and write. Their futures depend on it.
We are at the beginning of our Talk for writing journey but have already started integrating more story-building fun in our nursery classes. We are really excited to make Pie and Julia’s approach a solid part of our foundation.
