No Pens Day Wednesday 2014 was a huge success with over 3,600 schools and settings signed up in total. As part of the evaluation process
The Communication Trust have been working to capture stories about the innovative activities that schools and settings organised for the day and the impact it had.
Twelve of these case studies are now available to access on a new dedicated evaluation page of their website, together with the No Pens Day Wednesday 2014 evaluation report. (No Pens Day 2014 evaluation website)
Some highlights from the report include:
No Pens Day Wednesday is an annual national event from The Communication Trust that encourages schools to put down their pens and pick up their language by running a whole day focused on speaking and listening activities. The Communication Trust provides everything schools and settings need to run the day, which can be downloaded for free from their website, including the All About Me resource from The Makaton Charity. More than 11,000 copies of All About Me have been downloaded from The Makaton Charity's website. Click here to download your copy...
