    I completed a small scale research study on Transition between Reception and Year in 2010. In 2011 I worked with a colleague on a study, which explored the factors that supported students who were first generation into Higher Education. In 2012 I co-presented an investigation into student views on 'Enrichment Activities at TEAN'.



    My key areas of interest are Language and Literacy (particularly Early Literacy), parental partnerships, Creativity, Well-being, Transition between Reception and Year 1 classes and EAL.

    I have presented at Teacher Education Advancement Network conferences in 2010, 2011 and 2012. I ran a workshop for an EAL conference in Peterborough 2013. My publications include local authority teacher guidance on Assessing Young Children with EAL, Equality and Diversity, Reading for Pleasure and Transition between Reception and Year 1 classes. I have written teacher notes for BBC Educational Radio programmes and have had a published article in the Early Years Education magazine.
