This online training course is based around the 'Nursery Narrative' CD resource and will enable delegates to deliver effective interventions that develop children's speaking and listening skills through narrative.

As part of the course, a pre-recorded in-depth training video will be issued for you to view prior to this session which focusses on narrative development in young children and the use of the 'Nursery Narrative' CD resource. This one hour interactive session will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have around the use of narrative with your children.

What will I learn?

The course delivers interventions using the Nursery Narrative Approach, which extend vocabulary and language in certain topic areas.  The online training will cover the theory behind narrative development in young children and additional videos will share how to deliver the practical activities.

By the end of the workshop, you will:

  • Have improved your knowledge and understanding of the Narrative Approach;
  • Know how to improve the language, listening and storytelling skills of children aged 3-5 years;
  • Develop your knowledge and understanding of storytelling skills;
  • Be able to carry out an intervention group to support communication and language; and
  • Make effective use of the Early Years Pupil Premium and Pupil Premium Grant.

Delegates can purchase a copy of the high quality 'Nursery Narrative' CD resource, which contains a complete set of activities, lesson plans and picture resources to teach the narrative framework.  This resource is sold separately, priced at £81.60 including VAT.

This resource complements topic based curriculum activities. It includes full instructions and session plans, along with extension activities and carry over ideas for use in a whole class approach. A bespoke package of support is also available. Please contact us for more details.
