  • Explore the role of the adult in supporting writing in play, inside and outside
  • Some new ideas of ways to develop a writing-rich environment
1: What is writing in the EYFS?
2: The role of the adult: supporting writing in play and the continuous provision
3: Developing your continuous provision to support early writing
4: Creative planned activities to support early writing
