LocationLionwood Junior School, Norwich
Who is this course for?
• Early Years Teaching assistants
• Early Years practitioners wanting to update their knowledge on how to enable children to learn and apply phonics
• Practitioners working with children aged 3-5 years
Participants will have the opportunity to:
• Develop their understanding of the role of phonics in learning to read and write
• Consider how children can apply their phonic knowledge in stimulating play contexts that have meaning for them
• Review and update their knowledge on how to assess significant details of a child’s writing development
• Reflect on how they can support early literacy development through the characteristics of effective learning
This course will help Early Years practitioners to create learning environments where children are motivated to use their phonic knowledge independently in playful and purposeful contexts. We explore the role of the adult in supporting children’s progress in literacy by identifying opportunities for writing and reading in child-led play, and by planning activities that motivate children to write and read.
