Webinar Duration: 1 hour 47 minutes (approx.)
This webinar will provide headteachers, managers, leaders, teachers and practitioners in the EYFS with advice and practical guidance on promoting the joy of mark-making and writing, thereby enthusing and engaging young writers and enhancing progress in writing.
A wide range of factors feed into children’s early writing experience, such as their environment and daily interactions, their own exploration of drawing and mark-making, and their stage of physical development. By gaining insight into this journey into writing, EYFS settings can help children discover the joys to be had along the way.
In this webinar, Debi Keyte-Hartland, early years expert, TEDx speaker and lecturer with over 25 years’ experience working with schools and EYFS settings, explores children’s first writing experiences, and explains the importance of not just focusing on the final goal of writing, but considering, in holistic and meaningful ways, how to enhance children’s journey towards it, through conversation, play and across all areas of learning and development.
