CANCELLED - Bringing Books to Life with Music - Led by Sue Nichols & Hilary Miles

Date: Fri, 17 Nov 2017, 13:00 - 16:00

Venue: NSPCC, 3 Gilmour Cl, Leicester LE4 1EZ

Unfortunately we have had to cancel this event but are hoping to be able to re-schedule it at some point in the future.

Course description
This half-day course brings together music and story-telling in a completely new approach, providing a wealth of material to enhance and enrich Literacy lessons across the primary curriculum. Participants will be introduced to brand new songs (all recorded), plus listening, improvising and composing activities and every activity is threaded through with technology. The focused texts for KS1 and 2 feature popular books from renowned children's authors such as Eileen Browne, Arnold Lobel, Michael Morpurgo J.K. Rowling, Lewis Carroll and Shakespeare. 'Bringing books to life with music' has been designed for the non-specialist teachers but both English and music subject leaders will find the material very useful to share with generalist colleagues.

This course is suitable for class teachers, NQTs, TAs and music co-ordinators who will be training other staff.
