"The Inspirational Power of Words" Conference ends this Spring Term on an inspiring note...
Thank you to all the Cornerstone English Hub Team and everyone involved in delivering and preparing for the excellent conference yesterday on "The Inspirational Power of Words" A title full of promise, if ever there was one! Participants' goodwill and enjoyment was palpable in this perfectly-timed event as an uplifting end to the Spring Term with hope and inspiration in the air.
Watch out for a news item to follow, including more about Michael Morpurgo's keynote talk as an inspiring author and former teacher and Children's Laureate; along with some of his creative recommendations for encouraging children to read. We thank Michael for highlighting the joy and importance of reading.
For now, you can listen here to Michael reading "A Song for Gladness" for the BBC - his latest work, and part of a wider project aimed to provide comfort, especially to children during the lockdown to inspire others to enjoy the love of reading.
