Training Objectives Is this your first-year teaching Reception aged children or do you find yourself in a Reception class after having spent several years further up the school where learning is not a play-based approach?

Well, you are a very lucky person if you have landed yourself a job as a teacher in Reception, it’s a very privileged place to be where you can make a huge difference each day to every unique child you work with and play alongside.

However, it’s a whirlwind of a place to be, every minute is unpredictable, you’re told to go with the child’s interests in their play but you’ve also milestones to meet in 7 areas of learning Then you need to capture remarkable moments for the children in their learning and think about what’s next for them, sort the snack table, enable purposeful play in the construction area, facilitate the dough gym session, sort out 3 children with toileting needs, create a small world area (what’s that?), lead a phonics group outside in the willow den, you look at your watch and it’s only just 9.30am, I wonder what the rest of the day will hold!

During the session we will explore how children learn, how you can help meet their needs through quality observations and the sharing of what’s next for them, the importance of the characteristics of effective teaching and learning and how to inspire your children with exciting provision and fun meaningful interactions.

We will explore some of the terminology we use in Reception such as continuous and enhanced provision, how to engage young children and how you in your role can ignite their learning and encourage them to reach their full potential, whatever their starting point is. We will look at how you manage your time effectively and …. well in fact we will look at just about everything in the world of Early Years but hopefully you will go away with a whole host of great ideas.

No question in Early Years is a silly one so please come along with a small list of questions that you would like answered.
