Evidencing Learning & Demonstrating Progress in Year 1 – Rolleston

Course description

Ensuring children continue to make progress whilst presenting learning in ways that engage and motivate can be challenging for many KS1 practitioners. Although many classrooms now have elements of continuous provision in KS1 there is still much uncertainty as to how best to make it work. Questions such as ‘How can we ensure that children are challenged and making progress whilst engaged in self -initiated learning?’ and ‘How can we best evidence self-initiated learning?’ are often asked.  This session explores manageable ways to evidence learning through planning and recording and shares high quality examples.
