No Pens Wednesday on the 15th October is a national day focussing on speaking and listening and not using pens for the day.
There is an Activity Pack to download which will give teacher loads of ideas on how the can can be run as it is quite a challenge. The No Pens Wednesday event is being run by the Communication Trust which is a coalition of almost 50 not-for-profit organisations who work together to support everyone who works with children and young people in England, supporting their speech, language and communication.
Listen to what teachers say about the event on the You Tube video below – created especially for this year’s event, they speak very enthusiastically:
New for this year…
“As well as retaining our focus on mainstream primary and secondary schools, we’re delighted to be extending the resources available for No Pens Day Wednesday to early years and special school settings for the first time ever this year!
