Are you looking for ways to motivate and engage all young learners in your class or setting? Have you considered reviewing how you plan for your class together with planning the learning environment?

On this course we will take a look at the provision within our thriving Reception Class and explore how we maintain a balance between child-led and adult-initiated learning; how we utilise next steps and the children’s interests to engage and motivate all of our young learners.

We will provide practical advice, including suggestions of planning formats, activities and timetabling. We will discuss the role of the adult and the environment, and how you can integrate these ideas into your provision.

Training objectives:

On this course you will learn:

  • How to plan for children’s progress using their interests as a starting point, alongside objective-led planning
  • How to maintain a balance within your teaching and what the role of the adult is in supporting children’s learning
  • How to motivate and engage all learners through their environment

This course is aimed at:

NQTs, early career EYFS Teachers, EYFS Practitioners and Teaching Assistants and is designed to build knowledge, skills and confidence in reviewing your current provision and integrating a holistic approach to planning.

Workshop facilitator

Clare is an experienced Early Years Lead Teacher and Deputy Head in a school in Oxfordshire. She delivers training for OTSA and OCC.
