Creative Writing with Young Children

This article relates to a training day run by Mandy Coe which examined planning, good practice, INSET, multi-media and ‘making & doing’.

Further information and advice is currently being prepared as a result of our three-year research project, Class Writing, funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

For more detailed information, we also recommend Our thoughts are bees, the book written by Mandy Coe and Jean Sprackland.

The NAWE Magazine, Writing in Education, always features writers in schools. Visit the Magazine section of this site for a wealth of articles to help you develop your work in the area.
