FA Active Literacy – Primary Playground CPD

We are putting on an FA Active Literacy – Primary Playground Course on two seperate dates (it is the same course replicated so don't book on to both!) Please also note that this is a different course to the Active Literacy which is for Literacy Co-ordinators on 15/03/2018.

The recommended audience is Primary practitioners including lunchtime supervisors, teaching assistants and teachers, who would like to explore an activity-based approach to improving speaking and listening skills.

Wednesday 21st March and Wednesday 28th March 2018 - We are looking for a school to host so please let us know if you are interested.

This programme aims to get girls aged 5 to 8 engaged in physical activity through the art of storytelling during lunch breaks or breakfast clubs. Over the course of the sessions children will have the opportunity to achieve the learning objectives based on Key Stage 1 English and PE with a focus on fundamental movement skills and speaking and listening skills.

The FA active literacy programme supports ‘the beginner girl’ in developing their fundamental movement skills and patterns which are often a barrier to these children engaging in physical activity. The approach taken develops fundamental movement skills through the medium of creative play and literature.  it is hoped that through the programme these girls will grow in confidence which will lead to them becoming more physically active in the playground and engaging in a wider range of activities.

The course is 3-hours and provides each trained activator with a set of three story books and 20 creative workbooks for the girls they deliver the programme for back in their schools.
