There is a further 10% off the delegate price for a group application of ten delegates or more from a family cluster or Collaborative.
The Power of Reading is a school development project which engages teachers and children in the literacy curriculum using high quality books and proven teaching approaches. The project offers multi-layered professional development drawing on CLPE’s highly regarded classroom-based research and experience of working with teachers. It combines an introduction to outstanding books for teachers and children with an approach to teaching the English curriculum that is creative, engaging and develops a love of literacy. This successful project is entering its 13th year and has worked nationally with over 3000 schools and 5000 teachers in 50 Local Authorities. The Power of Reading is fully aligned to and meets all requirements of the National Curriculum 2014.
There are four days of training for each delegate spread throughout the school year. Headteachers and Senior Leaders are invited to the first morning and the final conference. Between each of the training days teachers will trial, share and implement the approaches and principles they have explored during the sessions. Teachers work on a school based case study which they present at the final conference.
For £900 each delegate receives:
• Two packs of carefully chosen children’s books for each project teacher
• Access to an exceptional and inspiring website of resources containing teaching sequences for over 190 books and more than 1000 examples of practice from Power of Reading schools
• Four full training days for each delegate at Suites Hotel.
• The opportunity to develop subject and pedagogical knowledge within each school’s context
• Tools to help schools to develop classroom and school provision to inform a whole school approach to reading
• Book group discussions to extend teachers’ knowledge of children’s literature
• Opportunities to listen to and meet leading children’s authors.

Teacher First Preview – Approaching Thunder
1940s British Prints and Drawings from The Hepworth Wakefield
Kirkby Gallery - Kirkby Centre, Norwich Way, Kirkby, Knowsley L32 8XY
Thursday 25 January 2018, 3.45 – 4.30pm
(immediately followed by the exhibition launch, 4.30 – 6.30pm)
Behind the Scenes Walk & Talk - An opportunity for teaching staff to see this exhibition before it opens to the public.
Kirkby Gallery is delighted to present Approaching Thunder, as the first gallery on its national tour.
This exhibition draws from The Hepworth Wakefield’s outstanding collection of 1940s British works on paper, revisiting a decade of anxiety, austerity and idealism that resonates strongly with our lives today. With materials strictly rationed and the art market in crisis, leading artists such as John Piper Graham Sutherland and Edward Bawden turned to the inexpensive medium of paper.
Although a substantial number of works in the show were produced under the patronage of Kenneth Clark’s War Artists Advisory Committee, these images are in marked contrast to the idealised state propaganda embodied in the art of Nazi Germany. Though government-regulated, the works exhibited here convey individual and subjective experience, exploring ordinary lives under extraordinary shared circumstances. Figures are lost in thought or absorbed in their labours; intricately described landscapes reveal devastation but also the lingering vitality of the natural world.
This event will allow teachers to see behind the scenes and the educational space designed for class/group visits. It is a great opportunity to view what’s on offer for schools and find out how to book a free place for your school group to visit the exhibition.
