Early Years Foundation Stage Masterclass
with Tamsin Grimmer
Wednesday 22nd March 2017 | Exeter | 09:30 - 13:00
'How Young People Learn' presented by Tamsin Grimmer
Tamsin will consider what happens in our brains during conflict situations and how we can relate this to young children. She will share ideas relating to our choice of language, calming strategies and techniques which encourage children to manage their own behaviour, problem solve and resolve conflict themselves. She will also link this with the characteristics of effective learning within the EYFS.
