Product Description

Day 1: How to use Continuous Provision Year 1
This course has been specifically designed to support KS1 teachers who are looking to develop the principles of continuous provision and enhancements in their classrooms; enabling children to revisit taught experiences and offering rich opportunities for exploration and challenge.  Inspiring and practical case studies will be shared that demonstrate how schools have successfully transformed their classrooms and the powerful, sustained impact this has had on outcomes.

Day 2:How to Evidence Learning & Demonstrate Progress in Y1
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

Day 3:How to Challenge & Extend Thinking in Y1
In today’s rapidly changing world, children need to be able to do much more than repeat a list of facts. Supporting children in developing thinking, rather than just learning facts and skills ensures that children are taught the skills that they will need in later life. They need to be critical thinkers who can make sense of information, make inferences, analyse, contrast and compare. Providing opportunities for children to question, share ideas, predict and hypothesise is critical for cognitive development and allows children to learn how to learn.

This workshop will explore ways that teachers in Y1 can stretch children’s thinking, offering them challenges that fire their imagination and help to develop their problem-solving skills
