Keynotes / Presentations:
Elaine Bennett, KEYU Founder, Trainer and EY Teacher
‘Climbing the stairs, Resisting the Lift: Developmentally Appropriate Practice in Year One’
During this session Elaine explored how we can support children as they move into KS1 building on high quality EYs pedagogy. Putting play back into KS1 has always been the right thing to do – but now as children return to school after the pandemic, it is going to be essential! Also with the release of the revised EYFS, Elaine touches upon this and we have also included some further links around the associated campaign and petition.
Julie Kent, Senior Lecturer & Course Leader Childhood Studies Nottingham Trent University
‘Talking Two Year Olds: A Holistic Approach’
This will be a practical reflection through the lens of social pedagogy, on the approaches and relationships which are formative to young children’s learning and development in the area of communication and language (C&L).
Sarah Watkins, Reception Teacher and Writer
‘Ensuring the Best Outcomes for Traveller Children’
An exploration of the barriers facing young children from Traveller families and some suggestions on how to improve outcomes for these children.
Dr Sue Allingham, Early Years Consultant, Trainer and Author
‘Are You Sitting Comfortably? Physical Development and School Readiness’
Being confident physically is a vital part of being confident in the environment. The impact of the reforms to the EYFS and its narrowed expectations could mean that this important area of child development is marginalised or overlooked.
