Action for Children's Arts

21st October 2005 at 01:00
Action for Children's Arts has the right approach to conferences aimed at teachers: it calls them "inspiration days". The next one, on the place of children's literature, writers and storytellers in the primary school literacy curriculum, has a starry line-up: educationists Margaret Meek Spencer (on "Learning to read, becoming a reader") and Prue Goodwin as well as authors Bernard Ashley (pictured), Chris Powling and children's laureate Jacqueline Wilson (pictured). It will be one of the first chances to debate the English 21 consultation findings with the QCA's Sue Horner. It's at Whitgift School, South Croydon, Surrey, on November 19. See for more details and booking form.
