Seminar Date:  Wed 3rd May 2017 (9.15am-3.15pm)

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.

Data and Chance in the World Around Us

* * 2 New Workshops for all Primary Teachers * *

I wonder how many people are online at any one time?

What’s the most common birthday month?

What’s the most commonly purchased item in the supermarket?

How likely is rain tomorrow?

What are your chances of winning the lottery?

Data is all around us. In fact, did you know that Data Analyst is now one of the fastest growing professions? Ensuring our pupils are aware of the potential benefits and drawbacks of creating, using and interpreting data sets and probability is an increasingly important skill in the 21st century.

In these two workshops, we will explore how a classroom culture which values all pupils’ contributions and provides exploration of data and chance through practical problem-solving tasks will ensure all your pupils develop essential statistical literacy skills and become discerning creators and users of data.

Suitable for all Primary Teachers

Workshop 1:   Wed 3rd May 2017 (4pm-6pm)

Workshop 2:   Wed 10th May 2017 (4pm-6pm)
