"Our Early Years Networks are held termly for any EY Teachers (Nursery & Reception) to come and share good practice. We currently have an email group of all interested parties that I have been emailing for any discussion items for an agenda.

So far we have looked at EY Baseline, Data, Tracking, Learning Journeys - electronic vs paper etc... People make suggestions of things they would like to discuss and we get together at different schools each time, have a look at any issues  then have a look around the EY provision for sharing of ideas. "

Come along and join us for a cuppa, chat and a chance to share great ideas that will have a positive impact on your daily work / practice.

"If there's one person to really kick start your year then it has to be Shonette Bason-Wood. I've seen her a few times and she is brilliant. You come away uplifted and inspired and she agreed to come and do her Spread the Happiness CPD for us in September. About fifty EYFS and primary teachers gathered in the hall and we howled with laughter non-stop for two hours! She gave us loads of ideas to take away. We couldn't wait to get back to our classes!"
