This practical course will help you to support children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to develop the physical skills need to become confident writers and ultimately improve writing outcomes.
What will I learn?
During this half-day course, we will:
- Explore the effective skills needed to help children to progress along their mark making journey;
- Recognise the signs of a reluctant writer and barriers to writing development in your setting; and
- Explore practical ideas to help reluctant writers to engage in an inspiring writing community.
N.B. Delegates will be asked to complete a pre-course task to support the evaluation and audit of their current writing provision.
Delegates can purchase a copy of the high quality resource ‘The Mark Making to Writing Journey’ for £10 when ordered with this course (usual price £25) which provides a framework for development and an ongoing reference tool for use back in your school.
