This three-part webinar package or full day course is for EYFS leaders and practitioners seeking to develop and build upon their understanding of the connection between continuous provision and teaching, and Ofsted’s expectations around early pedagogical approaches.
This course explores pedagogical approaches to teaching in the EYFS and considers how to manage the relationship between direct teaching and continuous provision, indoors and outside. We will reflect on our own practice and provision and consider how provision can be best used to extend and deepen children’s understanding, and how adults can best support this. We also consider the implications of Ofsted’s expectations on our planning, pedagogy, provision and practice.
Part 1: Pedagogy and Provision
In the first part of this course, we explore pedagogy and practice in the EYFS, examining the role of direct teaching. We examine statutory requirements and unpick Ofsted’s expectations about the relationship between teaching and child-initiated learning.
Part 2: Practice - A Holistic Approach
In the second part of this course, we focus on the importance of a holistic approach to teaching and learning across the EYFS. We unpick how provision can be used in partnership with teaching, to support children to develop and embed a wide range of key skills, knowledge and understanding.
Part 3: Planning - Connecting the Curriculum
In the final part of this course, we explore the connection between direct teaching sessions, continuous provision and your curriculum; including a specific focus on the role of the adult. We unpick the importance of carefully planning intended learning experiences, reflect on choosing the most appropriate pedagogical approaches to teach these, and strategies used to evaluate the impact.
