Monday 6th November Rethinking the Indoor Learning Environment – led by Matthew Sayer Ensuring that high quality learning is really happening during continuous provision time (indoors) This course will explore the dynamic relationship between the child, the adult and the environment and how, when all these are deeply understood and working effectively, the best possible outcomes for children can be assured. We will take an in depth look at how young children learn, what drives them to explore and how by understanding their natural motivations and interests we can ensure the potential of our environment for learning is maximised. There will be many examples of high quality indoor learning environments and discussion about how we can ensure provision responds to the needs of all children and is working for all children. We will unpick how adults need to be, what we need to know and do to ensure children’s potential as learners is fully realised. Tuesday 7th November Maximising the Potential of the Outdoor Learning Environment – led by Matthew Sayer Ensuring that high quality learning is really happening during continuous provision time (outdoors) Children love being outdoors and it is a huge motivation, understanding what drives young children’s learning outside enables us to maximise the huge potential of the outdoors for learning and the hugely positive impact high quality provision can have on outcomes. This course will help you establish absolute clarity about best outdoor environments. Help create a clear vision and way forward for provision and practice whilst ensuring outdoor experiences enhance, enrich and extend what is possible indoors. Well planned outdoor space optimises the possibilities of meaningful, rich contexts for learning that connect powerfully across all areas of children’s learning and development. This course will give you the tools and knowledge to prioritise development tailored to your own particular stage of development and circumstances. There will be opportunities to explore and discuss the possibilities of a forest school space, engage practically with outdoor resourcing with a focus on how adults need to be if children are to make the most of their time outdoors. Wednesday 8th November Continuing the Outdoor Learning Journey in Year 1 – led by Matthew Sayer Maintaining an age appropriate approach without compromising progress and outcomes How young children learn is not separated by fixed periods of time, and given the choice, children of all ages often prefer to learn outdoors. This course will explore the challenges of ensuring curriculum coverage whilst meeting the needs of all children. We will establish the key principles of outdoor learning and how in Year 1 we need to understand the types of learners we are receiving and how we can enhance and extend the outdoor experiences the children will already have had. This course will support teachers to successfully develop quality and inspirational outdoor provision and identify areas to prioritise to enrich curriculum delivery. There will be opportunities to explore resource collections and to explore a forest school area and consider how these experiences can support a rich, broad and balanced curriculum offer and reflect upon what is possible if you don’t have a forest area of your own.
