Slugs, Snails and Puppy Dog Tails - Boys and the Gender Schema


Have you ever seen a group of boys delight in a story of gore and blood? Have you ever stopped to think why the boys are not visiting certain areas of your learning environment? If you have a lot of questions about boys and how they learn then this is the course for you.


National and local data shows that boys are underperforming at end of EYFS (compared to girls). This workshop will explore what we can do to re-dress the balance the genders and improve outcomes for our boys.


By the end of this workshop you will:

  • Understand how the role of the adult and the environment we create influences and impacts on the learning of boys
  • Understand how to get boys motivated and engaged
  • Understand how to practically enhance your environment for boys now
