In light of the new Ofsted framework and proposals, this course will focus on the considerations and implications for the EYFS. Leaders will explore what “Quality of Education” looks like in the EYFS and have the opportunity to reflect on and evaluate their curriculum design to ensure that it provides sufficient challenge to support children to achieve their full potential.

Drawing on important research the course will provide leaders with the opportunity to reflect on what is known about the way young children learn and how this can be applied to classroom practice.

Wellies and Waterproofs: Quality Outdoor Learning Whatever the Weather – Waverley

Course description

During the autumn and winter months, outdoor areas can sometimes become less frequently visited by adults and children. However, the EYFS sets out an expectation that the outdoor environment I available and used well every day; whatever the time of year and whatever the weather.

With positive attitudes and thinking, the autumn and winter can provide many unique and valuable learning opportunities. This session will showcase a wealth of examples of practice which highlight the benefits of children being outdoors in these seasons. Together we will explore ways to make the most of this time of year, find solutions for constraints and barriers, as well as inspirational ideas!
