Event description

Description

I am not just playing...I am not made to sit still....I need to move to learn.

What is the impact on young children of Retained Physical Reflexes in all areas of learning and development in the EYFS? Children are being kept in static positions for long periods of time, from car seats to buggies to high chairs. Research is now showing the impact of this as they fail to "use up" primitive reflexes that should have disappeared by 12-18months. Retaining these reflexes means that other muscle skills cannot develop and has a direct impact on children's ability to learn. What can you do if children just cannot sit still for story time? What if you find some children just crawl around and climb over things all the time. Could retained reflexes be the reason and what can you do to help them? Come and find out much more in this whole day training session.

Drawing on up to date research from around the world - this is exciting training which will explain many traits seen today in nurseries and classrooms across the world. Come and find out how to support children to develop the essential physical skills they need, and learn how to explain to parents and inspectors why children need to move SO much.

When children are BALANCING they are working hard to control their balance makes to make their core muscles strong. This means they can sit at the table properly to draw and write; or they can stand to paint or use tools at a work bench.
When children are CLIMBING they are pulling themselves up. This works their shoulders, arms, hands and fingers. If you want to develop writers, your children need to have shoulders that are strong so they can use their arms. Their hands and fingers need to be strong so they can grip my pencil or use scissors and other tools safely.

When children are CHASING - they have also made up a game with their friends and are playing it together in a cooperative way and using their imaginations - watch out, those early stories are coming together, ready for reading and writing.
They are not just running, they are EXERCISING their whole body. This will keep them fit, helping to create a positive attitude to exercise and begin a lifelong habit of looking after their body.


Book now for this 5 hour session, with lunch included. This will also give you a comprehensive set of activities and resources to take away and use in staff training. The perfect way to develop your whole team's understanding of retained primitive reflexes and physical development.

LOCATION GUIDANCE:

The venue is at the offices of Randall and Payne accountants. It is located on the A46 Shurdington Road, between Cheltenham and Shurdington. Use the postcode GL51 4GA and look for the R&P (Randall and Payne) purple and grey signs. Visitors car parking is on the right as you come in the entrance.

If you are heading north up the A46 you will pass the Cricket Club on the right. Randall and Payne are on the left just after this.

If you are heading south down the A46, you will come over a roundabout at Up Hatherly Road. Go straight over towards Stroud. The offices for Randall and Payne are on the right after 500 yards. If you reach the Cricket Club you have missed it. Turn around here and come back to R&P.

Is this event suitable for childminders?

Yes - the inspection process for childminders uses the same documents and so this is very relevant.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No you do not need to print the ticket or bring it to the course.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

That's fine. Please contact the organisers with the names of the delegates so that we know who to expect.
