Event Details

SSOs Supporting Learning Series


facilitated by Katie Ashmead & Amanda Bartram


Term 4: Tuesday 12 November


Teachers and children rely on co-educators (ECWs, SSOs, PSWs, BSSOs) as they embrace the wonderful messiness that is learning. This is never more apparent than in Writing Workshop when ‘just right, just in time’ learning happens everyday!


We have developed our SSOs Supporting Learning Series with just this in mind - it has been created specifically for co-educators in Kindergartens & Primary settings.



Co-educators from sites (Kindergartens/Preschools and Primary Schools) using the Bookmaking and Writer’s Notebook pedagogical approach to teach writing are invited to join us for a morning of professional development about:

  • The Writing Workshop approach – an overview
  • Key principles of Bookmaking and Writer’s Notebook
  • How to support the teacher and children during Mini Lessons and Reflection Time
  • How to ‘nudge’ young writers into their learning
  • Being a writer who models strong writing habits


Our final session for 2019 

8:45am for 9:00am start - 12:00 noon

Term 4: Tuesday 12 November


Light Morning Tea provided


Please note: registration is strictly by credit card via Eventbrite only. Manual invoicing is not available.

Katie Ashmead and Amanda Bartram

Katie began her career in England and has been working in Adelaide for over 12 years.  She is experienced with a diverse range of skills.  Having implemented Writers Workshop with a bookmaking focus for Reception (Foundation) to year 3 children over a number of years she is passionate about creating opportunities for playful and powerful learning for children in their first years of school. In partnership with Marilyn Hayward, she has facilitated the Introduction to Bookmaking mini courses for Lisa Burman Consultants since 2014. These focus on the Bookmaking pedagogy with three to eight year olds. 

For the last two years Katie has facilitated the Bookmaking Inquiry group and has coached teachers on implementing book making into their sites.  She has also welcomed many educators into her Writing Workshops so they can observe and feel the power of this pedagogy first-hand.  


Katie is understanding of the challenges teachers face both as newly qualified and long term teachers and believes that every child matters. Katie facilitates professional learning in Writers Workshop, Reading Workshop and leads teachers in professional dialogue. 


Amanda is a passionate and innovative early years educator, who has recently embraced the ‘wonderful messiness’ of consultancy work with Lisa Burman Consultants. In her previous role at Blair Athol North B-7 School, Amanda developed a model of ‘doing school differently’ with a group of children in years 2 to 7 in the Red 5 Studio project. In this project, educators listened and responded to children in authentic ways; providing possibilities for engagement, increased wellbeing, a sense of community connectedness and a deep commitment to personalised learning – including children planning their own learning every day! 

 Amanda lives her belief that children are competent and capable – a view which underpins her daily work with children, their families and other educators.  


Amanda facilitates professional learning in areas such as: Engaging Learning Environments, Bookmaking & Writer’s Notebooks, Nature Play, Loose Parts & Blocks; and Making & Tinkering.
