Creative story writing templates structure and simplify the writing process. We offer them for the option of storytelling with Lego or modelling clay. The method of 'playful story writing' supports learners so that everyone enjoys writing stories and developing English literacy skills (spelling, punctuation and grammar - known as SPAG according to the UK curriculum). Completing a story boosts writers' confidence and is a motivator for studying SPAG.
Today the project offers story writing workshops to children, young people, parents and carers and mature learners, who enjoy working with their creative mind. The project has made accessible story templates that support play and the creative writing process. New stories are being added to the archive regularly.
Were you aware that talking about mathematics is beneficial for learners? The process improves reasoning skills and helps in understanding why a solution works, rather than memorising and rote learning. Talk Together London's worksheets provide examples and are designed to elicit thinking and talking while solving problems in mathematics.
Educators stress the distinction between the precise language of mathematics and more informal talk. But, research points to the importance of collaborative tasks and talk in learning mathematics. Allowing learners to construct solutions for themselves through talk enriches individuals’ logical thinking and problem solving skills. And, in many classrooms all mathematics can be seen as under the sole control of the teacher. To help learners experience being mathematicians, meaningful contexts and examples can be provided.
