Focusing on the crucial first steps of early Literacy, this webinar programme has been designed to provide insightful CPD for EYFS teams, refreshing knowledge and offering inspirational ideas to achieve high quality teaching and effective learning.
Packed with information and practical ideas, each 90-minute webinar will place a different aspect of early literacy under the spotlight. Each session will explore important aspects of pedagogy and reflect on the key steps involved in early literacy development. Building upon what we know about the critical role of language development, we will reflect on the interconnected relationship between early phonics, early reading and early writing; considering how carefully planned teaching, guided and child-initiated activities opportunities will enable children to secure these connections, allowing them to become confident, skilful, passionate readers, writers and communicators.
Part 1: Embedding Early Phonics Skills
Reflect on the steps involved in phonic acquisition and the importance of securing purposeful application of taught phonics, no matter which scheme is used. Consider how children can be successfully supported to begin to recognise, apply and embed their newly acquired phonic skills through meaningful experiences.
Part 2: Supporting and Developing Early Readers
Explore the value of carefully planned guided reading opportunities for young children. Enable them to practice and apply newly acquired phonic knowledge, develop wider reading skills and become enthused about reading. Consider how these opportunities can also be used effectively as part of the early writing process, supporting the children to connect their skills.
Part 3: Nurturing Confident and Successful Writers
Develop key strategies for supporting young children with their early writing and give careful consideration to high quality, carefully taught, well matched guided writing opportunities. Gain insight into how this will support children to transfer these skills into their play, enabling them to become confident and spontaneous writers within the provision.
