For the first time we are very excited to announce we are hosting a Giant Planet Training Day on 20th November 2019.
Due to the success of both our EYFS Three Characteristics of Effective Learning Training Workshop and our Get Confident teaching Scratch Training Workshop we are holding them both on one day.
The morning training session will focus on our OFSTED compliant Friends for Learning Training pack. This specialist training package has been developed to help all adults working with young children to understand the Three Characteristics of Effective Learning and help apply them in their setting. Attending institutions will be able to take away the Friends for Learning cuddly toys ‘Have a go’ Tiger, ‘Thinking’ Elephant and ‘Keep trying’ Giraffe soft toys, which are designed to support understanding and learning within the setting, in a fun and imaginative way the children will love.
In the afternoon there will be a hands-on twilight training session designed to get teachers and TAs confident in using Scratch as a programming language in the classroom with students. In addition, the training course includes a 12-month subscription to Rainforest Coding an online games-based approach to teaching Scratch programming, which you can use with all students in your school. Home access is included and it’s perfect as an after- school programming club activity.
