About this event
Audience – Teaching Assistants in Early Years

Focus: - ensuring we have a bank of play strategies to support all children in their play in your role as a play partner and beyond!

Course information
Isn’t play a lovely four-letter word, and a very important one when you are a young child. It sounds easy, but to get it right, it can be quite a challenge. We need to be able to understand our role in supporting children’s play in our everyday provision and moving it forward according to their skills and knowledge and their approach to learning at that time. We don’t want children to ‘just play’ do we?
Adults play an important role in child-initiated play. They provide a safe environment for the child to explore and test out their ideas – and everyone needs to know and understand the great importance of a play-based approach to learning in order for the children to learn.

About this event
Audience - Teachers and experienced Teaching Assistants in Nursery and Reception

Focus: - Ensuring the magnetic appeal is there for your children to be attracted to take their own learning to the designated learning zones in your environment that you have created to provoke their curiosity.

Course information
It’s quite a tall order making sure that the continuous provision within your learning environment is suitable to the needs, interests and abilities of your children across the year, ensuring that there is a progression of skills and knowledge with the resources that are accessible to them as well as raising their levels of curiosity and challenge with your enhanced provision that will also extend their knowledge and understanding of the world around them.
The phrase 'Continuous Provision' refers to the resources and areas laid out in your environment to provoke learning through play and exploration in the absence of an adult and for the children to become independent in making choices. The resources should be freely accessible to the children in the classroom during any designated 'free play' time and should stay relatively the same throughout the school year.

About this event
Audience - Teachers in Nursery and Reception

Focus: - How to develop a love of reading using stories, rhymes, poems, action songs, pictures, drama at the same time as introducing new vocabulary, having conversations, and developing confidence to explore with letters, words, sounds and actions in a fun and innovative way.

Reading is so important. As adults, we know that, but developing a love of reading in children from an early age will prove so useful in their later life; in fact, enjoying books and reading stories is crucial in the development of a child. Not only does it help with their ability to understand words, but it encourages them to develop their imagination – to see things and imagine things all by themselves – and to develop their speech, it improves concentration and introduces children to new concepts and the world around them.

Early reading ignites creativity, sparks curiosity, and stimulates the imagination in young children. Often, this leads to role-play as children grow which helps to develop other skills such as empathy, problem-solving, and morality.

On this course we will be able to identify the many ways that we can provide opportunities for children to develop their reading skills through exciting daily opportunities at home and in school and how reading can be incorporated into continuous and enhanced provision.

About this event
It's an exciting year of changes in the EYFS with new practices to embrace across the year. These 4 update sessions aimed at Head teachers and members of the SLT in schools, will be used to discuss and explore how the new EYFS educational programmes, the 7 key features of effective practice and your specific provision based around improved early communication are serving to secure early learning and to improve outcomes for the children. Curriculum design, assessment, and the shift away from collections of data will also be on the agenda. The hour-long sessions will be split between input of information and a Q and A section as well as a forum to share good practice around the EYFS reforms at this senior level.

About this event
Audience – Headteachers/members of SLT/School Improvement advisers who visit EYFS provision as part of the monitoring process

Focus: - Feeling informed about and judging the quality of Early learning experiences and opportunities across a year and having the confidence to talk about the impact of Early Learning in your school.

Ask yourself -Do you currently judge the quality of your EYFS learning just by what you see in a short lesson observation on your visit to the classroom or by drawing on what you already know about the evolving story, the current chapter, that goes with each unique child that has been shared through conversation and professional judgements of the EYFS staff? No excel spread sheet in sight!

During the morning we will take the four principles of Early Years from the new framework and use them to match your knowledge of the children in your school to why it is important to engage in a narrative with the teacher during your visit to their Early years environment to understand what they are doing at that time and with whom.

Often visitors to Early Years want to judge the quality of the Early Years by a ‘lesson observation’, when actually the true weight of any judgement is in the provision at that time and subsequently the judgements and observations made by staff, who are truly tuned into each child.

Headteachers and senior leaders/advisers will hopefully be able to gain a greater understanding of the new EYFS curriculum (2021) across this year and the Characteristics of effective teaching and learning to help them inform any observations made. In order to do this, there needs to be a good knowledge of the way learning is structured and facilitated through a play-based approach for each child.

About this event
Unpicking the Seven features of effective Practice.
During this three hour course we will look at the seven features of effective practice from Development Matters.

• Feature 1 - The best for every child
• Feature 2 – High-quality care
• Feature 3 – The curriculum – what we want children to learn.
• Feature 4 – Pedagogy – helping children to learn and the importance of the learning environment and sustained shared thinking
• Feature 5 – Assessment – checking what children have learnt.
• Feature 6 Self-regulation and executive function
• Feature 7 – Partnership with parents

Why not use this opportunity to take on board the ideas and messages and then share these with your team/school at a future staff meeting and build up your own confidence in talking about the seven features in relation to what is on offer in your school in EYFS and how this is built upon across the other Key Stages.

Following the session, the PowerPoint content will be shared alongside support materials that can be used across the rest of school as part of staff meetings with other Key Stage colleagues to upskill them on how learning starts in the Early Years and how they will be able to build on this throughout the key stages.

Cost £30 per delegate
For schools categorised as level 3 or 4 by the school improvement team the cost is zero. Please ensure you quote level 3 or 4 when booking to ensure prices are amended, if you do not you will be charged. The training team are not privy to the list of schools who fall into this categorisation.

About this event
Audience - Teachers and Teaching Assistants in Nursery and Reception

Focus: - Inspiring language development in every child through role-play

Course information
Role play allows children to explore and create new and exciting worlds. The possibilities of children’s role play can be endless and can also be a very powerful tool for learning new vocabulary, as children take on roles/characters, act out various scenarios and stories, and solve problems using language and movement.

Children are amazing at picking up words and phrases we use or that they have heard through teachers, friends, and other adults. Role play helps them to understand the power of language and how to use these words in various scenarios as well as encouraging them to listen to what is being said.
