EYFS Language & Vocabulary CPD
This CPD course is for EYFS colleagues. It focuses on the systematic development of language and vocabulary linked to areas of provision. This should improve pupil-to-pupil interactions and lead to more sustained, higher quality play.
The course is intended to impact on 5 key strands: vocabulary development, phrases and sentences, interactions, knowledge and play. The EYFS leader can evaluate impact against these strands.
By the end of the course, practitioners will have gained substantial knowledge that help to achieve the above outcomes.
The video tutorials can be watched individually or together as a team. They can be paused in order to discuss points. There are accompanying resources to aid discussion. Ideally, the EYFS leader completes the course first so they can then guide colleagues in CPD sessions and facilitate thinking, planning, and professional dialogue.
Case studies: Vet's role play; cars and transport; home corner; small and large construction; utilising instruction texts; animal homes. The case studies can support colleagues with activities, books and development of provision in these areas, but it is also hoped that through professional dialogue the principles can be applied to any area of provision.
The course provides step-by-step guidance on how to develop language, vocabulary and sustained play. It offer advice about how to build adult language and vocabulary so that everyone is well placed to boost pupil progress. The course helps adults understand the importance different types of vocabulary on play development.
This mini course is packed full of ideas that will help all adults in maximising the impact of provision.
