Zoe Paramour and Tim Paramour: Grammar isn’t the enemy of creativity

Too often, people inside and outside of the education profession seem to think there’s an “either/or” at work when it comes to grammar and creative writing. The suggestion is that either we teach children the conventions of grammar with precision and rigour OR we teach them to be creative, to use their imaginations and to express themselves. We’re going to explain why it’s actually easier to teach both- to teach grammar well AND encourage children to be creative and to write with flair.

 

If you missed our sessions on Friday 18th June, make sure you register to watch the videos later on. Catch up on discussions with Sara Alston on differentiation, Andrew Cowley and Adrian Bethune on wellbeing, Gary Wilson on making our boys brilliant, Jon Tait on difficult conversations and Matt Goodfellow on poetry in the classroom.

We will be talking about our own experiences of headship, the trials and tribulation, the joy and the rewards, what we have learned through the process and the advice we would give to others starting the journey!

Rounding off the Festival, we have a keynote talk from Daniel Sobel, author of The Inclusive Classroom, Narrowing the Attainment Gap and Leading on Pastoral Care.

 

17:15-18:15 Tuesday 29th June

Daniel Sobel

The 7 painful truths hiding in plain sight about inclusion and the most simple of solutions

Daniel Sobel will draw on his 3 books and demonstrate macro themes that really challenge school in budget, time and stress across all aspects of inclusion – Pupil Premium, SEN, Pastoral and SEMH and so on. He will show how seeing the wood for the trees of these issues and making the right tweaks here and there can have massive impact on budgets and time and the way inclusion is done in schools. Daniel will also share some “new epoch” thinking – a radically different paradigm for thinking about the same old, often stale issues.
