Code: EYFS 20/00195 Physical Development: A Step in the Right Direction (Cancelled)

Session One:

Physical Development A Step In The Right Direction…..

An informative, thought provoking course that will provide practitioners with in-depth knowledge about physical development and its relationship with children’s overall development. The course will explore how children’s physical development affects and supports other areas of their learning: including their sense of identity, learning capabilities and health and well-being. The course will explore how children develop physically over time and how physical activity can support improved outcomes for vulnerable children. The training will also look at the opportunities physical activities provide when supporting communication and language development. At the end of this session there will be a gap task to enable delegates to apply knowledge learnt from the training to everyday life. Discussion and feedback will be shared during the following training session.

Session Two:

Physical Development A Step In The Right Direction….

Will provide plenty of practical ideas with easy to source resources to support the key physical skills discussed in session one. This course will enable practitioners and teachers to increase their knowledge and confidence so they are able to organise an enabling environment that supports children’s physical skills with opportunity to share and learn new physical activities.
