In this session we will build on session 1 about ‘curriculum’. Our curriculum is not set in stone, though it will have a central core, so we need to reflect on how we use that core to develop the Overarching Principles of the EYFS.
- A brief review of what is meant by ‘curriculum’. What is unique about your setting? An opportunity to share ideas and questions from Session 1
- Using the Characteristics of Effective Teaching and Learning to develop practice and provision
- Tips for effective observation, assessment and planning
- Handouts and proforma to support practice
