Next Steps: Moving on Through KS1
As children move into Key Stage One, it is important that practitioners promote learning that meets the needs and interests of these pupils. This course is designed to enable Year 1 and Year 2 teachers to build on effective practice in the Foundation Stage, ensuring that children make progress towards end of Key Stage expectations. It will consider how young children learn best and the implications of this for teaching strategies in the classroom.
In this exciting session, Professor Julie Fisher will consider recent evidence about how children learn and question whether current practice in Key Stage One optimises these ways of learning. Challenging the reliance on teacher-directed activity, she asks whether introducing more child-initiated learning could offer children a more appropriate balance of learning opportunities.
The final session of the day will be led by teachers who have embedded this approach. Sharing many practical ideas, they will discuss the challenges and the impact this has had on both staff and children.
