Encouraging links between students and school staff around the globe
The first paragraphs from authors have started to come in and I must say they are first class, can't wait to see the twists our young writers come up with! Some authors are also being incredibly generous and sending signed books so we have some excellent prizes to be won. We will be having a poetry day again this year to coincide with National Poetry Day and the last day of WP will be an 'adult' day - I will be inviting authors to have a go at continuing stories started by other authors and will also be asking a few participants to help out, should be fun! There will also be one primary school day a week, this went really well last year and we have a trophy to award of course.I wanted to draw your attention to the chat facility on the ning - if you look down to the right hand side of your screen you will see the chat facility there, click to maximise it. You can use this to talk to other members of the ning or to ask me or anyone else questions, I will try to be online as much as possible at the start of the new term.
If you do want to participate this year but have not signed up yet please do so as soon as you can, there is a form on the WP Central page for this as I mentioned before:
All bookings and payments will need to be in before we set the timetable on 24/25th Septenber so time is of the essence. I will also be holding a Skype Q & A session in September, details to follow - if you are lucky enough to have access to an ipad of course we could have a Facetime chat ;0) .
Looking forward to it!!
