Early Writing Writing

This course focuses on the Early Years and the crucial knowledge and skills children need to develop for writing at this point in their learning. In line with the EYFS Framework, this course will help teachers to encourage children to write using their phonic knowledge and build their imaginative and motor skills to support them to become confident, competent writers. 

This course is one of four Teaching Writing courses tailored to the needs of children in Reception to Year 6, meaning teachers can undertake one course on its own or attend all four courses to embed consistency of practice throughout their school. 

What you will learn:

This course has been specially tailored to the needs of children in the Early Years by our expert teaching team, and covers the following key areas:

  • How to choose and use texts to enrich vocabulary and inspire opportunities for writing.
  • How to develop children’s early mark making.
  • How to encourage the development of gross and fine motor skills.
  • Ideas to inspire children to write across the extended provision based on a high quality text.

What participants will receive:

All of our writing courses include one high-quality text with associated detailed planning to allow teachers to implement course ideas and strategies immediately in the classroom.

Learning outcomes:

Participants will strengthen their knowledge of how to support children at the early stages of writing to explore a range of purposeful writing opportunities across genres. Teachers will leave this course feeling confident to build children’s skills throughout the early years so they are able to enter Year 1 with the techniques to continue to improve and develop their writing.

Book our face-to-face courses with full confidence that they will be run within government guidelines on health and safety and social distancing.  Like everyone, we are having to review the situation with regards to Covid-19 regularly. If government guidance changes then we will work with you to ensure that we can deliver an alternative that meets your needs and that gives your school the training you need. 


I would definitely recommend this course, so many ideas that can be put into practice.
