Event description

Description

Early Years Practitioners are invited to attend this year’s PE, School Sport and Physical Activity Conference.

A key note followed by informative workshops, led by industry experts, have been developed to support the EYFS Physical Development theme. The focus will be to help understand the importance of physical activity and how they can encourage and develop new opportunities for young children to be active, interactive and help develop co-ordination, control and movement in a fun and informative way, that will support their long term physical development.

9:00am – Registration & Key Note with Dr William Bird - The incredible truth about how exercise can transform children

Dr Bird will use the latest research to help teachers and Early Years practitioners understand how physical activity can transform children’s brains to help them improve concentration and behaviour. You will learn the importance of movement, and how being outdoors can have extra benefits. Finally we will learn about how best to increase activity levels both within and outside school/pre-school.

10:00am – Zip Active

This interactive workshop will explore child development and the opportunities high quality daily physical activity provide in the development of the whole child with a particular focus on communication & language.

11:00 – Break & Refreshments

During the break there will be a marketplace of providers and services that will be on show for practitioners to network and gather information or resources.

11:20 – JB Adventures

The JB adventure series is designed as a cross-curricular resource aimed at EYFS and KS1 pupils to improve their physical literacy. With a focus on each different area of the curriculum, the JB adventure series is not only a fun and imaginative way to engage all pupils, but are also a great way to develop pupils’ interest in literacy.

11:45 – Back to basics; how to use existing resources and equipment for physical activity

Practitioners will learn fun and innovative ways to create opportunities for physical activity and development using the limited resources that are already in the nursery/pre-school setting.

12:10 – Close & Depart
