10th May, 2022 - 13:00 pm to 15:00 pm
Price: £50.00


Early Years

This series of webinars will take participants through the CLPE Reading Scale, focusing on key attainment expectations for children at different ages and stages of development and will explore the practice and provision that will support children’s progress towards these goals.

All elements of the training are in line with the requirements of the new Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and the new Reading Framework.

What will participants gain?

  • The knowledge, skills, attitudes and understanding involved in becoming an Early Reader.
  • What reading experiences should be provided in the curriculum?
  • What texts and teaching approaches best support these experiences?
  •  Contextualised teaching of phonics and word recognition.
  • Approaches to develop fluency and comprehension.
  • The knowledge, skills and understanding children will gain from these approaches.

All participants will also receive a free teaching plan for On Sudden Hill as well as a free Take 5 Home Learning Resource example. 

This session, focussed on progress and provision for the Early Years will focus on the foundations for reading, looking at the range of reading experiences that can be offered to children at this age and how these can be used to develop children’s ability to decode, word recognition and comprehension

Throughout the session we will:

  • Explore the kinds of texts that can support teachers to focus on key reading skills and strategies during reading aloud, shared reading, group reading, individual reading, independent reading and home/school reading, including how such texts can support the contextualised teaching of phonics and language development. 
  • Share a range of creative teaching approaches designed to develop fluency, reader response and comprehension, extending children’s knowledge about and understanding of what has been read.
  • Exemplify how to select texts to meet the needs and interests of children in the Early Years and explore related activities that will support children’s learning across the provision, preparing them for the transition to Key Stage 1.

Very informative and excellent range of texts to back up how to support progression in reading. Good amount of interaction.
