Writing is a key to success in life. The ability to write gives a person the ability to express themselves, to be creative, and to communicate their wants and needs. Early development in writing skills is key to a successful career in early, primary, and secondary education, as well as ensuring that all children reach adulthood with the skills they need to thrive.

This course will provide early years practitioners with the skills and knowledge to ensure that they offer a rich and exciting curriculum that promotes writing skills. This course will enable practitioners to fully understand the requirements of the EYFS in relation to writing and to be able to create exciting opportunities to meet them.

The learning objectives for this course are as follows:

  1. To understand why writing is an important method of communication
  2. To assess your setting against EYFS results and an internal progress tracker
  3. To know the physical stages of development (including the emergence of fine motor skills)
  4. To know the different stages of writing development
  5. To be aware of activities, resources, and ideas to develop children’s writing skills and support writing development

This course ensures your practice is in line with the requirements of the Childcare Act 2006 (the Act), as amended by the Children and Families Act 2014. It will also support your continuous professional development and enable you to keep well informed and up-to-date with current practice.
