Planning a Text Based Curriculum in the Early Years - Webinar
Start the year with our online CPD to support you in planning to use quality texts in your classroom.
This webinar will investigate what a text based unit looks like in practice in an Early Years classroom or setting.
Our expert teaching team will share how these units can be used to support children’s knowledge and skills as early readers and writers - including contextualised opportunities for phonics, language and grammar - and how to provide invitations for young children to read and write and, thereby, raising engagement and attainment of pupils.
We will also look at how such units can work together to provide a rich and comprehensive curriculum that enables progress and attainment throughout the Early Years, building solid foundations for learning in Key Stage 1.
This webinar will focus around the high-quality text, Lulu Gets a Cat by Anna McQuinn and illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw (Alanna Max)
What will you gain from this webinar?
- An understanding of what readers and writers in the Early Years should know and be able to do.
- An understanding of how to use a text to support communication, language and literacy and the wider curriculum in EYFS.

Who should attend?
This webinar has been developed specifically for those who teach in the Early Years. These webinars were originally created in April to support practising teachers in schools during the COVID-19 pandemic, due to the great reviews from teachers and popularity of these webinars we have decided to make them a part of our Professional Development programme at CLPE. These webinars look at what effective English teaching looks like and how to build a comprehensive English Curriculum around quality texts.
