This two-webinar course led by renowned EYFS advisor, Professor Julie Fisher, will enable KS1 teachers to ‘build on’ effective practice in the Foundation Stage rather than just ‘getting ready’ for the next stage. It considers how young children learn best and the implications of this for teaching strategies in the KS1 classroom.
It addresses how the learning day can be organised to accommodate a balance between adult-led and child-led learning, and examines how the role of the adult subtly shifts to support both contexts.
We encourage both EYFS and KS1 Phase Leaders to attend this course together to develop a joint approach.
