Matt Glover Visit

It was an exciting week as Matt Glover, an author and educational expert shared his knowledge about children’s writing with our whole community. Teachers explored writers workshop techniques and approaches with Matt and then observed him taking lessons about writing. The students enjoyed his inspiring ways of making writing a stimulating process. Our assistants had an afternoon with him where he unpacked supporting writing strategies. At the Thursday coffee morning for parents which was extremely well attended with approx. 70 people, Matt gave a presentation that examined the stages of writing and about honoring these stages.
It was a wonderful week and an enormous stimulus for teachers to further develop both their skills and understanding of Writers Workshops and we look forward to his return next year.
