Collaborative Literacy: Literacy Through Play

11th May at 4pm

Join us for our first ‘Literacy Through Play’ event for Primary practitioners which will kick off a series of Literacy focussed sessions providing the opportunity for FVWL colleagues to share good practice and build a collaborative network.

This session will cover the progression of teaching Literacy through a play-based pedagogy in Primary 1 and Primary 2. We will discuss what a typical week would look like within Literacy, covering both the formal teaching aspect as well as developing Literacy more informally through free play. We will also share a variety of documentation and assessment strategies that we have found to be effective within Literacy.

Sign up either via CPD Manager or by emailing RIC Literacy PT Chiara Sportelli: sportellic14s@glow.sch.uk

Collaborative Literacy: Early Years

4th May 2021 at 3:30pm

We look forward to welcoming you to our third ‘Early Years Exchange’ event for Early Years practitioners in our series of Literacy focussed sessions providing the opportunity for FVWL colleagues to share good practice and build a collaborative network.
In this session we will hear from two colleagues on how they have helped develop Literacy through considering the impact of their role and working with families.

My role as EEL in promoting literacy in ELC -not the icing on the cake but part of the mix.
Through sharing my experience of my evolving role as EEL I plan to explore some of the commonly used words and phrases used to describe my role and discover what they actually mean in practical terms in the playroom and what impact they have in helping to develop children’s Literacy skills.

Literacy Together
Closing the literacy attainment gap through partnerships, supporting families through language workshops and rhyme time challenges. Working closely with Speech and language therapists to improve environments and educator’s understanding of how to support communication. Enabling connections that help all children reach their full potential.
