About this event
Unpicking the Seven features of effective Practice.
These sessions are suitable for anyone working with children 3-5 years olds.

These 7 sessions across the year are structured to help you with your EYFS CPD programme in school. Each session will be limited to 12 delegates so that the group is small enough to enable everyone to have a chance to share, reflect and ask questions and big enough to be able to gain ideas from a range of colleagues. 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..
Each session will give us the opportunity to explore one or two of the seven features of effective practice from Development Matters. Half of the session will be used to explore the key feature with an input from the trainer and the other half will be the opportunity to share successful practical ideas, ask questions of the trainer around the key feature and be part of a forum with the other 11 delegates ‘in the pocket’!

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 £15 per delegate.

About this event
Audience – Anyone exploring outdoors with 3–5-year-olds!

Focus: - Discovering ways to develop and encourage language development in the outdoor environment when the children are fully immersed in their chosen play.

Course information
The outside environment is a great way to develop and encourage language development. Exploring the world around them allows children to learn and practise using a wide vocabulary and helps them to develop a range of communication and language skills.
There is evidence to show that some children (and adults!) learn better than they do indoors.

The outdoor environment can be a highly motivational place for the development of communication skills. Motivation will stimulate the use and development of communication skills, but children must first experience the desire to express their thoughts, feelings, ideas, and intentions.

We know that children learn best through activities and experiences that involve all of their senses, and the outdoor environment can provide more freedom and space to engage in creative activities – such as music, dance, rhymes and songs – that also support language development.

During this course we will consider the many exciting ways that we can help children develop their communication and language skills at the same time as adding to their knowledge and understanding of the world around them, and of course I’m sure we will mention the importance of the characteristics of effective teaching and learning at some point as well!

Please come dressed appropriately as part of the course will hopefully take place outside – that is not an April fool comment!

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
The love of Reading. That journey that we are honoured to be part of with very young children who act like sponges when each word or image in the book comes alive.

Stories, books, poems, rhymes, words, actions, strange and funny voices, pictures, illustrations, colours, textures, fantasy, reality – wow! A book really can be a hook.

In each these two sessions we will take one book (suitable for 4–6-year-olds) and explore how it can then excitedly open up wonderful learning opportunities for the children to independently investigate in their daily provision to extend their imagination, to learn and use new vocabulary with confidence in their play and to put these new words into the context around them. What could reading into writing look like? How can the children take these ideas into their own small world play and rehearse this ‘recently introduced vocabulary? Will you be hooked as well?
