A Developmental Approach to Spelling: An Introduction to the Words Their Way Programme”

06-03-2020 10:00 am -1:00 pm

NEPS Limerick will be presenting: “A Developmental Approach to Spelling: An Introduction to the Words Their Way Programme”. The Words Their Way Programme adopts a word study approach to spelling which moves away from the traditional system of spelling teaching, instead emphasising the value of teaching pupils processes and strategies for examining and thinking about the words they spell, read and write. Words Their Way is an open-ended individual process. An assessment is given to determine where to begin instruction. Based on assessment results pupils are given words to study in order to discover the common attributes. In this manner pupils are actively constructing their own knowledge of spelling patterns. Pupils learn features by completing activities such as word sorting, word hunts, games and drawing and labelling. Pupils work individually, with partners, and in small groups to encourage cooperative learning.

NEPS has overseen the implementation of this new approach to spelling in a number of Dublin schools and it has had some very positive outcomes.

PDST Primary Physical Education Move Well, Move Often Seminar Day 4

10-03-2020 9:15 am -3:15 pm

This spring, the PDST are delighted to offer the next phase of Physical Literacy training for primary schools – Seminar 4 which focuses on developing pupil’s motivation and confidence to participate in physical activity. In this seminar, participants will explore a variety of strategies that can be easily implemented in PE lessons to motivate and develop pupils’ confidence to improve participation in the PE lesson and also in physical activity within and outside of school. Developing motivation and confidence is a key element of every child’s physical literacy development.

This seminar builds on the content of our 3 previous seminars which focused on movement competence through the fundamental movement skills.  Research shows that being physically active later in life depends on feeling confident in an activity setting; and that confidence, as an adult, most often comes from having learned Fundamental Movement Skills which are the basic building blocks of movement and are an essential part of everyday life and recreational activity.   It is only when these skills are mastered that a child can go on to develop specialised movement skills, which will allow them to reach their potential in sports-specific endeavours. 

This seminar is limited to two teachers per school registering on the PDST online booking system.

Playful Learning and the Curriculum

 Due to high demand we will run Aistear programme again.

Interested in finding out about playful learning experiences for teaching language and maths? If so, then register for these lively Workshops, which have been developed by theEducation Support Centres Ireland (ESCI) in collaboration with the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA). 

The Workshops link with the Primary Language Curriculum, which emphasises the importance of playful learning experiences for all children.  They provide ideas for developing young children’s oral language and emergent writing, as well as mathematical learning, in a playful way. This is a great way to get started in thinking about play and appropriately playful learning experiences. 

This course draws on the key ideas in Aistear: the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework (2009) and provides lots of practical ideas for using these in your infant classroom. Take a look at other teachers’ resources for play and find out how they plan for, resource, support and assess learning through child-led play. You will also hear about a variety of resources available on the NCCA’s website.

An Introduction to Aistear Wednesday 11th March 2020 Time 4.30pm-6.30pm

ICT - Digital Storytelling

11-03-2020 5:00 pm -7:30 pm
Storytelling is an art form that exists from ancient times’ right up to the present day. Nowadays the stories we share are often multimodal; text, still images, moving images and sound. From a storytelling perspective we have evolved from sharing fairy tales, myths and historical accounts to sharing a wide variety of stories through printed books, e-books, movies, images, videos, blogs, micro-blogs and podcasts. 
 
This creative and innovative workshop will:
● Explore the benefits of digital storytelling to improve the key skills of literacy, creativity, working with others, managing myself and communication.
● Examine the effective use of images, audio, video and text to create a digital story.
● Use digital tools that support the creation of high quality digital stories
● Focus on methods of story planning, creating and sourcing images, capturing video and how these can tie in with the curriculum.
● Discover how the digital storytelling process can improve students engagement in learning and student’s ability to self assess.Please bring a charged wifi enabled laptop or tablet device with you on the night.

Droichead Post Primary Cluster 1 Meeting

11-03-2020 6:00 pm -8:00 pm
NQTs must apply for Droichead via the ‘My Registration’ portal on www.teachingcouncil.ie and receive a confirmation email before attending Cluster Meeting 1.

Cluster Meeting 1 must be attended before attending other cluster meetings and we recommend that NQTs attend Cluster Meeting 1 ASAP after commencing the Droichead process.

NQTs are required to attend one cluster meeting (specific to their sector, Primary or Post-Primary) per term in sequential order for the duration of their Droichead Process.

A sign-in system is in operation at all cluster meetings. An NQT arriving more than 10 minutes late or leaving early is unlikely to receive credit for attendance at that cluster meeting.

NQTs must bring Form D (available at www.teachingcouncil.ie) to each cluster meeting for stamping to record attendance. It is the responsibility of the NQT to maintain this record.
