Event Details

Writing in the Early Years 

Inquiry Group 2018


Bookmaking & other writing with 3-8 Year Olds

Year-long Collaborative Inquiry and Support for the teaching of Writing in Kindergartens and the Early Years of School



 Facilitated by Katie Ashmead



Join a small group of like-minded educators from kindergartens (prior-to-school) and primary school settings to deepen your understandings about the pedagogy of Bookmaking and Writing Workshop.

It is a pre-requisite of this Study Group to have previously participated in our Introductory mini-courses.

It is not pitched at an introductory level and will assume background knowledge and experience with the pedagogy of Bookmaking/Writing Workshop.

This is a Pedagogical Inquiry Group - not a series of workshops. We created these Inquiry Groups for all the educators who have participated in the Introductory Mini Courses and who are looking to extend and enrich their pedagogy of writing. The facilitators follow the interests and questions from the group and facilitate dialogue where teachers troubleshoot, inspire and support each other.  It is important to understand that these are NOT facilitated like a workshop where everything is pre-prepared. 

What 2016-17 participants are saying about their Writing Inquiry Group experience:

"It was a fantastic forum of like-minded educators who were all so passionate about Bookmaking! I highly recommend this Study Group to anone who has entered the wonderful world of Bookmaking!"

Lara, Reception Teacher 

"Not only did we have the opportunity to learn new skills and have guest speakers share their writing experiences, but the networking with other educators was exciting."

   Angela, Early Years Educator


The Study Group will comprise 2 modes for learning (face-to-face & online). It is focussed on educators supporting educators, rather than using workshop or presentation formats.

1. One Saturday Session (3 hours) in Adelaide each term. This will be facilitated by Katie Ashmead, who has been faciliating the Introductory Mini Courses for the past four years, and respond to your questions and interests.  9:30am - 1:00pm

Term 1: Saturday 10 February
Term 2: Saturday 12 May
Term 3: Saturday 4 August
Term 4: Saturday 27 October

(dates are subject to change)

2.  Private FaceBook page where you will be invited to share ideas, successes and ask questions of each other. Moderated by the team at Lisa Burman Consultants, who share articles, blog posts and other resources to support your bookmaking with children.


This year-long project will provide at least 25 hours of professional learning time if you access the FB page just once a week/fortnight. A Certificate of Participation, that is aligned to the Australian Teaching Standards, is provided at the final Saturday Session. 


Please note: payment is strictly by credit card via Eventbrite only.

Tax invoices are provided immediately should you require reimbursement from your site.

Katie has implemented Writing Workshop with a bookmaking focus with Reception (Foundation) children for a number of years and is passionate about creating opportunities for playful and powerful learning for children in their first year of school. In partnership with Marilyn Hayward, she has facilitated the Introduction to Bookmaking mini courses for Lisa Burman Consultants for over three years. These focus on the Bookmaking pedagogy with 3 to 8 year olds. During this time, Katie has also welcomed many educators into her Writing Workshops so they can observe and feel the power of this pedagogy first-hand.
