I am TWO!!
I’m two and I just want it; not that way or your way – my way!!!
I want only the red bowl… Absolutely no other bowl will do.
I only want to wear my pink shoes with purple butterflies, even though mummy tells me they are too small now, I always wear them to nursery. However, as my developing sense of self is emerging, together with my, at times, explosion of overwhelming emotion means that what I was able to share and communicate with you yesterday and maybe the day before – I just absolutely can’t today.
So I’m going to look at you with a frowning, disapproving look on my face…. I’m going to stamp my feet, scream and shout even louder than you have ever heard me before and sometimes just have a total melt down!!! I completely can’t cope with anything at this moment in time, I’m not able to draw on any other ways of communicating with you apart from throwing my whole self on the floor, wriggling around like a raged worm…. All whilst you look at me thinking, ‘It’s only the red bowl!!! What’s the problem?’ – Also as you wonder ‘What do I do now?’ If I pick you up…. You hit me. If I talk to you…. You can’t hear me yet as you’re already shouting so loud.
Just how can I help you??

This highly practical course is suitable for all practitioners at Level 3 and above who are looking for creative ideas to support children’s mark making.
Drama and props present an exciting opportunity for children to make sense of the world around them, helping them to develop social and language skills which together form the foundations for early writing. When children engage in drama and using props they play out short scenarios which are stories in their own right. Making up stories, understanding them, re-enacting them, practising, rehearsing and refining them, is a stepping stone to being able to write the story in years to come.
This is a practical course which will explore a range of ideas and strategies to use in the early years setting. The course will explore the links between children’s language development, the stories they tell through their play and how we, as adults, can support children to write their stories down.
This network will provide an opportunity for practitioners who work with babies to meet and have focused discussions which aim to strengthen practice. The network will respond to the needs of delegates who will be able to suggest topics for discussion.
Topics for discussion may include:
Daily routines and activities
Supporting learning in the prime areas
