About this course

Do you want the inspiration to create the moments that make children sigh with happiness?

It covers both practical and sensible advice which will help you to create an enriched provision for your children.

It will help you to plan for the rich variety of learning that children learn most from – a recipe for success!

A good balance of practical and theory. Good examples of practice. Lots of opportunities to ponder and discuss.

Teacher , The Paragon School

Great. Really made us all think about what we could change/improve. I'm in year 1 and we find it hard to get zones into our classroom. Now we are going to work on mobile zones and hopefully we'll be able to get a bit more enhanced learning into our year.

Teacher , Saint Ronan's School

Loved it. Really opened my mind to new ways of delivery in the classroom. Less passive learning - I'm all for it! Thanks Julie.
