Help! They’ve put me in Reception!!

Event/course Code SCH/20/230
Event/course type Curriculum Training / Early Years Curriculum
Event Description Well, you are a very lucky person if you have landed yourself a job as a TA 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’re also given learning targets to meet in 17 areas of learning Then you’re asked to write an observation, 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?), have a focus 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!

This session will explore some of the terminology we use in Reception such as continuous and enhanced provision, the importance of quality observations and their purpose, 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.

If you’ve got any questions whizzing around in your head, bring them along to this session where you may possibly get an answer – just your two most pressing ones though!!

Help is on its way

A fun and interactive session for TA's new to the EYFS
