Course Details

In this course, we will examine all the skills that feed into becoming a successful writer and how these can be built upon incrementally and in a developmentally appropriate way through play. We will cover the role of the environment and adults in supporting a culture of mark-making and writing. We will explore strategies and teaching approaches to support children to become motivated writers and look particularly at progression throughout the Reception year. An additional optional pre-record session will be provided to ensure participants have secure phonic subject knowledge. This course includes: Necessary skills needed to develop prior to formal writing (birth to 3), writing in nurseries, planning for writing, an environment to support independent writing, progression in reception, the role of the adult, opportunities to watch recorded examples of whole-class and group guided writing sessions in Reception.
