      Twilight Empowering Early Years CPD workshop: MATHS, MUD, SAND AND WATER! How your sensory play provision & experiences can elevate young children's early mathematical & conceptual understanding, skills & later learning.

      NEW!   Empowering Early Years' Twilight CPD workshop: MATHS, MUD, SAND AND WATER! How sensory play provision & experiences can elevate young children's early mathematical & conceptual understanding, skills & impact upon later learning.   Weds 27th JUNE, 6-8pm. Kindly hosted by Chudleigh Primary School.  £25pp including refreshments course materials and CPD certificate.   Led by experienced Early Years Teacher Hannah O’Donnell, this 2hr Early Years CPD workshop for all those working with children under 5, looks at the importance of access to and enhancing MULTI - SENSORY PLAY provision and experiences both outside and in, within settings and schools, (water tables, sand trays/ pits, mud and dirt!), in order to enable young children to develop their core mathematical skills and understanding of key early mathematical concepts, vital for later formal learning. ...'It's not about numbers in the water tray! ....' It will incorporate practical explanation and understanding of recent scientific and educational research into how children's brains develop effectively to learn, using sensory experience, real life items and utilising the scope of larger scale outdoor as well as indoor provision. It will focus on how children develop mathematical understanding and conceptual knowledge through enabling physical skills and cognitive development via sensory play experiences (water, sand, mud etc) and what this looks like in play.  In addition, it will look at what it means to have mastered core mathematical skills (not just the ELGs) and how developing these, through sensory play, will apply directly to later learning in mathematics and other areas. It will address how very young children can begin to apply key mathematical concepts (not just numeracy) through enhanced provision and play based experiences involving the senses and how these can differ both outside and in to incorporate elements of risk, problem solving, team work and autonomy - all vital to allow children to develop their higher level executive functioning skills for learning. In addition, the workshop will focus on easy, cost-effective ideas for provision areas, involving water tables, sand pits/ tables/ trays, as well as mud and space outside - for interest, engagement and learning, in order that they provide a solid foundation upon which to improve outcomes for all young children in their understanding of and application of key mathematical skills and processes. Course Synopsis: What will Early Years practitioners, Managers, teachers, childminders, T.A's & those working with 0-5 age group get out of this workshop? A greater understanding of neurological - cognitive- physical development links (creating healthy brains) in young children, as they uniquely grow How the environment and practitioner can enable effective mathematical skills development utilising sensory play. Simple explanations of the key learning processes involved with sensory play (in this case involving water trays/ sand/ mud etc), which link to the later cognitive and emotional learning and life skill processes (attention, memory and problem solving etc) necessary for children then achieving their full potential and thriving. An in-depth look at what it means to develop core mathematical skills and understanding through play, - not just reaching (or not) the ELGs and how these can apply to later learning. A comprehensive understanding of how utilising the water, sand and mud trays/ provision both outside and in, can elevate early mathematical understanding for young children through following interest and developing enhancements which provide physical challenge, risk and problem solving. A brief understanding of potential negative factors affecting the development of key mathematical understanding in sensory play - Sensory needs (SPD/ ASD etc), Technology usage, lack of autonomy and risky play experiences. Some cost-effective and easy ideas for developing excellent and engaging sensory play provision and enhancements on a budget, which can enable children to develop mathematical skills. Information to take away and support additional provision planning/ ideas for engagement and enhancements and to empower parents’ understanding of the play and mathematics skills development link. An overall, empowered understanding for the practitioner of how to assist the unique child develop their mathematical skills within the sensory play provision set up, as well as modelling, language used and ongoing reflective practice, based on research-led findings. Full workshop notes, plus electronic copies will be given to attendees for their personal use, as well as key references and suggested reading based on the workshop and a CPD certificate of completion.  E: empoweringearlyyears@gmail.com  Some previous EEY GM Skills 2018 Workshop Feedback from delegates -  including Teachers, SENDCo's, Managers, Practitioners, Childminders and Nursery Staff. 'Found it very interesting, I wish it was not so fast - enjoyed it!' 'Good to have training at a higher level.' It was just right - short enough to inspire you to do your own research and get excited about trying something new!' It is a short but very informative event, it made me want to learn more!' 'Underpins what we do and the reasoning behind it.' 'It exceeded expectation as it was very informative and there were really useful handouts which suggested further reading and research.' 'I would recommend it as colleagues do not always appreciate the importance of play to learning.' 'Very enthusiastic and lots of really useful information!' 'Very enjoyable and thought-provoking, a desire to learn more.' 'I would recommend it - to be able to think outside of the box and as a reminder that play is best.' 'Workshop exceeded expectation and linked to Early Years Teacher Training study’ 'Clearly explained facts and interesting provision. (The course )‘Exceeded expectation - loads of fantastic ideas presented in an interesting way.’   FAQs Are there ID requirements to enter the event?
