    SPiCE Workshop #3

    Together Every Day

    INTENDED AUDIENCE
    This workshop is offered free of charge and will be useful for SPiCE coordinators, OSHC directors, occasional care educators and early childhood teachers and educators.

    THE WORKSHOP

    Together Every Day

    In this workshop we will be exploring the new SPiCE resources called Together Every Day.

    The resources consist of two sets of posters, postcards for families and a manual for playgroup co-ordinators.  We have chosen the focus areas of:

    • Reading together every day
    • Singing together every day
    • Talking together every day
    • Exploring together every day
    • Finding out together every day
    • Delighting together every day; and
    • Being together every day.

    This workshop will be repeated on Tuesday 27th August 2019 from 9:00 - 12:00pm.

    A session for new co-ordinators will be held on 26th August from 9:00am - 12:00pm.  All new coordinators are expected to attend these sessions followed by the workshop in the afternoon.  Please register for each session separately.

    We would like all co-ordinators to attend one of these sessions if possible as these resources, and the ideas behind them are now the core work of our SPiCE playgroups.

    Continuity & Transition Project 2019 - Day #3


        Register for Day 3 by Friday 23 August 2019


        Cost - $25.00 (includes morning tea and lunch)


        Starting school is a major event in the life of children and their families. How children continue to flourish as they experience the multiple challenges and opportunities brought about by the transition to school, will be strongly influenced by the context and practices of the school community.

        This is the third of our project days where we explore the challenges and opportunities for children’s learning, growth and development in the processes of starting school. In doing that we will be reflecting on the strong influence of the context and practices of the school community.  This includes:

        • Ongoing reflection on our progress to date - please bring the 'Transition to School Rubric' with you);
        • Considering the concept of school readiness: what does that mean for children, families, the early learning environment and the school?
        • How we prepare a learning environment which welcomes and includes all children;
        • Jane Lemon from our Early Years team will join us to explain the role of SPiCE in schools' continuity and transition journey.

        Transforming our pedagogy:

        • How we undertake ‘Continuity & Transition’ practice through the lens of children’s development and learning, the EYLF, the Australian Curriculum Foundation Stage.
        • Consider documentation and assessment of children’s learning as an aspect of continuity and transition.


          Please keep a copy of your registration confirmation for your professional portfolio.
