The exhibition space for this seminar was developed and set up by our infant classroom practitioner R1 who is our messy and sensory play aficionado.
The superb exhibition space developed and set up by our Owl Class Team Leader J, focusing on exploring, investigating and understanding the wonderful world around us.
I was lucky enough to secure a late tour session with the super Sally Thomas to view the latest in the series of best practice spaces she has developed in collaboration with Norfolk County Council’s Early Years Achievement Team.
From early mathematical skills to learning to code, story-telling and meaning making as part of literacy development and a keen enthusiasm for exploring and investigating the world around – I thoroughly enjoyed this training given by Norfolk County Council.
Something that is well known about me professionally is that I really enjoy planning and leading staff development days. I always have a clear idea of what I want to focus upon and what the professionals I’m working with would benefit from.
Today I arranged for my entire staff team (and students) to visit a “Best Practice” exhibition at the Woodside Community Hub in Norwich (Norfolk) followed by an afternoon at the Mini Scrapbox in Reepham (Broadland) to source and collect resources inspired by their observations and experiences of the exhibition.
