    Maxine has dedicated her life to meeting the standards required within the curriculum through an approach that puts children at the heart of every decision she makes. Children love reading. Teachers love teaching through books and the best time of the day is cuddling up with a book. Maxine will talk about how this works in the reality of a school day.

    In an age where mindfulness is being taught to staff in global companies, to MPs and Peers in Westminster, and in thousands of schools around the world, (approximately 8,000 in the UK), it’s time to reflect on why and how this is happening, and where we might find sound research evidence that mindfulness actually does any good. 10 years after the establishment of Mindfulness in Schools Project, Claire Kelly explores what mindfulness is and isn’t, what the evidence says about its potential benefits for staff and students, and what a sustainable model for mindfulness in schools might look like.

    Counting backwards and forwards in rhymes helps children to understand the number system and to recognise numbers in order. This is particularly useful for children learning English as an additional language. We are going to be making 10 Green Bottles. We are using paper print outs from Twinkl.co.uk and Pritt Sticks to join the bottles together - things every classroom needs! We will then be ready to apply this to the familiar rhyme either in 1:1 learning tasks, or for group or whole class teaching through continuous provision. Learn the numbers, 1:1 correspondence and simple subtracting all through this activity.

    Engaging children in a new topic is easy with a book! Let’s start with Starry Eyed Stan - a superstar starfish, with a special talent! He’ll launch your under the sea topic in a fun and exciting way, using some fabulous sea themed crafts along the way. We will be using a range of different fine and gross motor skills to create a wonderful under the sea themed area - hiding starfish in the sand tray, making our own paper plate crab, and showing you how you can use these makes in your EYFS/KS1 Under the Sea themed topic planning.

    Goldilocks and the Three Bears is always a firm favourite in Early Years and KS1 as it provides so many opportunities to extend learning into maths (size and positional language), literacy with story-tellling, and PHSCE discussions. The story set that we will make today can be made for each child to keep retelling the story, or can be used for display or class teaching. There are so many ways for you to extend the learning opportunities with your craft story-telling set. Use them in your maths lessons to look at matching sizes and the language of bigger and smaller.

    Since the abolition of national curriculum levels, schools have needed to adopt their own approaches to monitoring attainment and progress. This session focuses on how schools can use robustly developed standardised tests to reliably assess pupils. During the year, information about pupils’ relative strengths and weaknesses can inform teaching and curriculum design. At the end of the year, teachers can use the standardised data summatively as part of their teacher assessment. There’re a lot of myths about standardised assessments; attend this session to gain accurate information on the development of reliable standardised tests and the benefits to teachers and pupils.

    Creativity influences and stays with students all their lives. Enquiring minds have answered many questions throughout our history, but have created even more. Thinking outside of the ‘normal’ box, has moved mankind to beyond the far reaches of our solar system. Our ability to communicate through creative thinking has been instrumental in all of this. It starts with a spark of interest early on in our development as children. Creativity will show different ways to solve problems and answer questions through thinking ‘out of left field.’ Nurtured this ability can change the life of everyone on the entire planet.
