With only a few weeks to go, National Stationery Week is calling on children, teachers and parents to get involved and celebrate all things stationery.
During 25th April – 1st May National Stationery Week, sponsored by Maped Helix, Nu Notebooks, Bic, Sheaffer and Staedtler, will be encouraging stationery-lovers to get involved in a number of activities.
One such activity includes downloading lesson plans from the campaign website to encourage school children to use a selection of colourful pens and pencils to create handwritten notes to study, create and explore.
Chris Leonard Morgan, Founder of National Stationery Week said, “we really want to get children to pick up a pen and write; there’s immense possibility in a pen and they can be a source of inspiration for so many. We’re excited to see what schools do during National Stationery Week because stationery and writing are both fundamental parts of education. The key part of National Stationery Week is fun!”
Other ways to celebrate the week include sending a letter from a historical figure to a modern day person, practicing joined up words and improving spelling, writing a film or book review, creating a poem, story or play, and posting a letter of thanks to your teacher, parent or friends.
With some schools in Finland and the United States axing handwriting from their curriculums, National Stationery Week is encouraging students across the globe to develop a unique style of writing and discovering their own unique voice by putting pen to paper, proving that ‘Writing matters.’
