PART ONE: Robust assessment
Thursday 5 December, 6-8pm 

In this workshop we explore what these Learning Stories might look like for children as teachers think deeply about children’s learning lives and then work to stretch this learning through planning a vibrant environment where children thrive as learners-in-action.

In addition: Imagine thinking about the Learning Stories you write as a tracking of the growth of your own professional practice, with the specific focus of making a real difference for children’s learning outcomes. 

The trace of your professional life! 

PART TWO: Educating heads, hearts and hands
Wednesday 15 January, 6-8pm

A closer look at Learning Dispositions and the Language of Learning - We will focus on the analysis of learning as it relates to the narrative. We will discuss and develop reflective writing, shifts in children's thinking and making teaching and learning visible. Along with a focus  on dispositions and what learning is happening here we  will also look at how we, as teachers, can support children’s view of themselves as learners through the conversations we have and language we use with children. We will be drawing on the work of Guy Claxton and Margaret Carr  and look at how the language we use can help our children to build their learning power!
