Julie Fisher Seminar
Next Steps: Moving on Through KS1

Course description

This course is designed to enable Year 1 and Year 2 teachers to build on effective practice in the Foundation Stage. It considers how young children learn best and the implications of this for teaching strategies in the classroom. Through the use of DVD footage from Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes, it considers how the role of the adult differs as learning is supported and extended in both adult-led and child-led situations.

Issues addressed:

  • How children learn most effectively age 5, 6 & 7
  • Planning an effective learning environment in Year 1 that builds on best foundation stage practice
  • Organising the learning day – considering the impact of the school timetable on learning
  • The differing benefits of learning alongside an adult and learning independently
  • How daily observation and assessment feeds into flexible and meaningful planning
  • The role of the adult in supporting both adult-led and child-led learning
