The Laughter Factor (Cancelled)

This course will explore the relationship between positive well being and learning for children. It will explore recent research and consider how laughter for children impacts the context for learning and its consolidation.

Rana Esseily (2015) conducted research on babies as young 18 months old, which showed that laughter resulted in babies learning more of the target actions than those in the control group who were not laughing during the learning period.

Fun with Sounds - Laying the Foundations for Early Phonics

‘Phonics is a way of teaching children how to read and write. It helps children hear, identify and use different sounds that distinguish one word from another in English. If children are able to understand phonics it will help them know which letters to use when they write words’ (National Literacy Trust, 2018). Phonics education is driven from the Department for Education and this course has been developed on recommendations from government policy.

Clearly, providing rich opportunities for singing, saying rhymes and moving to music is an essential element of high quality early years practi ...
