Alma Park Literature Festival 2017

After the huge success of last year we have decided to have another exciting literature festival at Alma Park. This year we have some great authors such as Maz Evans, Helen Hancock, Corinne Averiss and an amazing comic artist, Kevin Sutherland.

The Alma Park Literature Festival will run from Monday 27th February- Friday 3rd March

This is going to be an exciting continuation of World Book Day celebrations where we will provide children with a range of opportunities to see themselves as authors and illustrators.

Aims of the Week:

·         To understand the role of an author- we will have a range of author visits and creative writing workshops

·         Finding ways to take writing beyond the classroom

·         Providing are children with exciting stimuli for writing based on their experiences and interests

·         Establishing real audiences for children's writing, publishing our writing in a variety of ways

·        Improve writing across the curriculum

Parents will be invited to see what we have been doing during our Oscar assembly on Friday 10th March.

After the assembly you will be invited back to class to see what your children have produced during literature week.

Have a look at the week's events on the link below.

I'm sure it's going to be a huge success.
