Venue:              RACE Centre, Dublin Road, Kildare Town

The Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST) provides a range of continuing professional development supports in the area of Health and Wellbeing. A central component of this relates to the teaching and learning of the PE curriculum.

The PDST are delighted to offer one full day’s training in Physical literacy through Fundamental Movement Skills.  Physical literacy gives pupils the tools they need to take part in physical activity and sport, both for healthy life-long enjoyment and for sporting success. 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.

Fundamental Movement Skills 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. 

A copy of the PDST’s new Physical Literacy resource pack which brings Fundamental Movement Skills to life for teachers, will be provided to all schools attending this training.

The purpose of the seminar is to:

·     -  demonstrate the PDST Physical Literacy resource pack through active participation

·     -  upskill participants in using Fundamental Movement Skills as a lens for developing Physical Literacy through the PE curriculum

·     -  enable participants to support other teachers in their school using the PDST Physical Literacy resource pack

Schools are invited to nominate TWO teachers to attend.

Attendees will need to be suitably dressed to participate in activities.

The Department of Education and Skills will provide substitute cover where required.

 For 2016-2017 NEPS and the Association of Teachers’/  Education Centres in Ireland have embarked on an exciting collaboration to provide training courses for teachers who would like to develop their practice in the teaching of literacy skills in the Early Years.

As part of the National Literacy Strategy, NEPS have developed a new on-line resource for use by teachers in Irish primary schools.

The Balanced Approach to Literacy Development in the Early Years draws on international research, evidence based practice and samples of that practice in Irish primary schools to give a coherent and comprehensive guide to teachers. It is also aligned with the new Primary Language Curriculum.

This is a resource that can be used by class teachers working with children from Junior Infants to First Class. It may also be helpful to schools who have identified the need to improve reading standards as part of the school-self-evaluation process.   Some schools may also like to use the resource to support the work of a professional learning community focusing on literacy.

This resource contains:

*      Suggestions for developing practice

*      Supporting resources and materials

*      32 short video clips of best practice in action showing teachers and children in Irish classrooms

*                Summary of research evidence practice in action

Restorative Practice:

A values-based way of being that aims to actively promote relationships, respond to harm, and CONNECT us to our best selves and to one another.

This workshop is for you if you are interested in developing personally and professionally. It is ideal for teachers interested in improving relationships, building community, and communicating in a positive way that promotes synergy, well-being and solutions.

 

Level One: CONNECT In

This introduction to Restorative Practice will aim to offer a brief insight into the philosophy, motivation and skills to be a restorative practitioner. During these workshops we will explore how to develop restorative skills and how to cultivate a restorative mindset using restorative values, intentions and language. The first session offers an overview of RP, how it consciously builds relationships and outlines an introduction to the restorative questions. The second session will focus on developing EQ; on understanding, identifying and transforming difficult emotions such as anger and shame. We will explore restorative language and how it move from shame and blame to empathy and connection.
