St James C of E Primary and Nursery School, Okehampton
There have always been challenges that face EYFS practitioners, trying to juggle the balance between formal learning opportunities and inspiring children through a play-based learning approach. With Ofsted’s focus shifting towards the development of curriculum and the proposed introduction of a more knowledge based EYFS Framework, it is essential that practitioners continue to focus on how children learn and develop, using up to date research, as well as ensure that they are meeting the latest statutory requirements. Our challenge is to consider an innovative approach to what Outstanding Quality of Education in EYFS really is, considering both effective research and the practical elements of how this will look indoors and outdoors in a Nursery or Reception classroom.
This course is suitable for EYFS practitioners who have been teaching in EYFS for at least one year.
• Develop a deep understanding of the latest education theory of early learning and its implications for the design of curricula, teaching and assessment in EYFS
• Be able to apply over time these practices to your own classroom
• Create a network of EYFS practitioners that support and challenge each other to develop their practices over time
TSSW Members (DTSA, Exeter Consortium TSA, SWTSA): £295 per delegate. Other colleagues: £375 per delegate. Open to all EYFS practitioners.
