Mark Making to Writing – Dorking Half Day €65.00 02 Jul

Mark Making to Writing – Dorking

Course description

As children become more confident and excited about their mark making and begin to understand real writing, it is critical to offer support in ways that maintain children’s love of writing and its meaning in a range of contexts – for notes, lists, letters, stories and so on.

Leading children’s mark making towards writing is a skilful process and in this practical workshop practitioners will consider the experiences, activities and support they can provide to promote children’s passion, confidence and skill in writing. Delegates will gain inspirational ideas to help to develop mark making opportunities indoors and out in ways that ensure that, as children develop the skills of writing, they apply these within their play with greater complexity.

The Role of the Adult – Dorking

Course description

We know that high quality interactions play a vital part in developing higher level thinkers and motivated learners. Alongside this, engaging in conversation during child-initiated activities helps children readily absorb new vocabulary and language structures. Developing, sustaining and evaluating the richness of interactions within our busy environments can be challenging.

This course will explore the clear links between creating continuous provision, and high quality enhancements. We will discuss the importance of providing an environment rich in interaction; a space which promotes questioning, discussion, imagination and shared thinking.  Practitioners will leave the training with a clear vision for improving the quality of interactions within their setting.
