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
Audience – Teaching assistants in Nursery or Reception

Focus: - Being able to tune into children and their learning when they are leading it themselves but need an adult to support or extend them in an inspirational and thought-provoking way.
Course information
We often say that Early Years children can seem as though they are gifted and talented in the morning and special needs in the afternoon!
• Have many adults who work with very young children know exactly what is going to happen each day? So how can we plan for this?
• Why do children do the things they do or say such unusual things at the most bizarre moments? How do you react so that they still feel valued?
• How easy do you find it to respond….in the moment?
• What do you do if children misbehave because they don’t know anything different?
• How does this unpredictability fit into the new educational programmes and the seven features of key practice?
• How do you know if that moment you have just witnessed is ‘remarkable’ enough to take a photograph of or record in some way

About this event
Audience – Nursery, pre-school, and Reception

Focus: - Ensuring that everyone involved in the transition process is prepared and confident in knowing what makes an effective and successful transition for our young children,

Course information
Young children are expected to go through many major transitions before the age of 5 that will inevitably have an effect on their lives in many ways. We must do everything we can to help these transitions to be as smooth and meaningful as we can. As we know each child is unique and therefore transitions for children from one setting or class to another will not necessarily look the same. Each child comes with a slightly different story attached to them with chapters that need careful consideration.

Time needs to be put aside before each transition period to ensure that when the moment comes, as the child strides towards the next step, that everything is ready for them.

This course is predominantly aimed at both Reception teachers and pre-school/Nursery staff as they are in the pivotal point of these transitions, transferring children from pre-school settings and also sending another group onto Year 1. However, Year 1 colleagues are also essential to be part of the discussions, messages and sharing of ideas.

For the last two years, we have experienced transitions for children in a very different way due to Covid restrictions and we have learnt many new and valuable lessons around different and effective ways we can approach transitions for children, families and schools.
