Counting Stories – Maths & Literacy
The 8th evening in our expert Knowledge Makes Change seminar series will feature Neil Griffiths on Counting Stories – Maths & Literacy
Neil Griffiths was a Primary School headteacher for 13 years before taking on the role of director of a National Literacy Project for the Basic Skills Agency where he introduced his original Storysack idea to schools and communities throughout the UK. After six years, Neil began to devote all of his energies to Storysack® and they are now available worldwide and have won many awards.
He has created award-winning play resources, written a nursery curriculum, a best-selling resource book on creative play, and imaginative material for the Early Learning Centre. He has developed a scheme for supporting English as an additional language and also finds time to write his own children’s picture books, Neil loves to tell a story and a story time with him is a highly entertaining event as he magically draws his audience into his storyworlds
This is a free event open to everyone engaged with young children and their families and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
The Knowledge Makes Change seminar series aims to inspire and be informative on ‘what works’ for young children and their families to ensure the best possible outcomes.
