Training available from PECT enables practitioners to inspire children's literacy through the natural environment

Wild Literacy, run by the environmental charity PECT, is all about taking young children out into their natural environment to enhance their understanding of the wider world around them, and to develop the vocabulary needed to talk about their experiences. By taking children outdoors and encouraging them to engage with nature we can take sometimes complicated and confusing vocabulary into an experience which can be felt through practical and hands-on activities.

The project provides a range of practical resources and ideas to be used by Early Years Foundation Stage practitioners in a natural environment. These resources follow a step-by-step approach to enable children to move from using basic vocabulary, into extended and further developed literacy and communication. We will also include an electronic copy so you can print and add your own ideas and experiences as you go.

The training will take place in your local area, with dates and times arranged to suit those attending. Activities are run dependent upon available funding, so please do get in touch to find out more.
