Developing Quality Interactions in the Early Years One Day 29 Jan £125.00

Developing Quality Interactions in the Early Years

Course description

Research has repeatedly shown that high quality interactions are central to effective Early Years practice. This requires adults who effectively ‘tune in’ to children and can respond to their needs through sensitive, playful interactions and thoughtful planning. How effective are your interactions? Do they encourage thinking and provide challenge in your learning environment? On this course we will explore the importance of interactions as part of the adult role and as an integral part of the planning and assessment process.

Mapping the Journey: Achieving Inspiring Practice through Meaningful Assessment

The balance between the recording of information and meaningful assessment of young children is a crucial one. Too much emphasis on the former can lead to settings gathering reams of information which may not show progress or be useful in to the planning process. On this course we will explore what effective assessment in the Early Years looks like and how, used well, can lead to reflective and inspiring teaching and learning.

Course description

This course builds on the highly popular Year 1 course offered in the Autumn Term, but is also suitable for people who did not access that training.
Research shows that children benefit from a curriculum and provision that builds on their previous experiences and provides rich opportunities for exploration and challenge. As children move through Year One it is essential that the learning experiences provided offer sufficient challenge for all children to make progress.
