Developing Provision to Support Early Writers in EYFS with Keely Cook

Date(s) - 26/01/2022
4:00 pm - 5:30 pm



This course will give you the opportunity to explore how to develop writing within your setting, with a focus on how to provide an enabling environment to support this.

How can we support our children to be the most successful writers they can be? Becoming a writer is complex and this training course will focus on the whole process of writing from the physical elements to the Early Learning Goal and beyond.

The training will:

  • demonstrate ways in which early writing can be developed
  • look at how to support those children who struggle with fine motor skills in their early writing
  • provide practical advice, including suggestions of activities and resources
  • discuss the role of the adult and the environment, and look at examples of writing with a focus on effective moderation

On this course you will learn:

  • how to plan and provide provision to support writers
  • how to model and guide children to make progress in their writing
  • how to evaluate examples of writing towards the Early Learning Goal for Writing and how to use exemplification materials to support judgements

The session is suitable for:

NQTs, Early Career EYFS Teachers, EYFS Practitioners, Teaching Assistants and those aiming to build their confidence and develop ideas for ways in which they can support children towards achieving the Early Learning Goal for Writing.
