Engaging Parents and Carers – Wolverhampton

Course description

Working in partnership with parents and/or carers, and involving them in their children’s learning is a central element in the EYFS. If we are able to support parents in continuing their children’s learning development at home, the benefits are wide ranging and include improved educational outcomes.

In this session, we will explore principles that underpin effective working with parents and reflect on how to improve communication between parents and practitioners.

Drawing from first-hand experience and case studies, this enlightening session will consider a range of practical, effective strategies to engage parents/carers in their children’s learning.

Mind the Gap! Supporting Transition into Year 1 – Wolverhampton Half Day 10 May $65.00

Mind the Gap! Supporting Transition into Year 1 – Wolverhampton

Course description

We often are reminded that transition is a process, not an event, and is a huge change for children which can impact on their social and emotional wellbeing as well as their academic outcomes. It is up to the adults involved to make the process of transition as smooth and continuous as possible. In this session practitioners will reflect on best practice at this crucial time for supporting children though the key move into Year 1.

This course will focus on the unique challenges and opportunities that successful learning in Y1 brings. It will focus on how to develop the principles of continuous provision and enhancements in Year 1 classrooms that enable children to make progress.  You will have the opportunity to consider how a well-organised, challenging environment, underpins effective learning and teaching across the whole curriculum.

Challenge & Progression in Literacy – Wolverhampton Half Day 10 May $65.00

Challenge & Progression in Literacy – Wolverhampton

Course description

Guiding and supporting children’s early Literacy development is a skilful process which we will examine during this practical session. There will be lots to explore- inspiring book areas, writing areas to nurture confidence and purpose, and environments which are rich with language opportunities. We will explore how we can provide appropriate challenge through a well- planned environment, rich in possibilities. Practitioners will consider the experiences, activities and support they provide to promote children’s passion, confidence and skill in literacy and will reflect on what “exceeding” looks like as they consider how to develop their own practice and provision to support this progression. Delegates will leave this session with lots of practical ideas to improve their environments and inspire a deep level of learning.
