About the Webinar

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.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding how talk and drawing are related to expressing knowledge of signs, codes and symbols essential to the journey into writing as a mode of communication.

  • Recognising the importance of children’s physical development in achieving the gross and fine motor control necessary for mark-making and writing.

  • Ensuring that writing is more than a copying exercise, and that children gain a concrete understanding of what writing is and can be used for to activate their motivation to write.

  • Appreciating that teaching children to write offers an opportunity for self-expression, creativity and communication across areas of learning and development in the EYFS.

  • Being able to identify a range of strategies to improve the comprehension and formation of writing in the EYFS and enhance progress.
