Planning for learning in the EYFS is not a simple task.
Planning can be daunting, time consuming and ineffective. It is easy to fall into the trap of planning for activities and topics, rather than planning for learning.
Be better, more confident and effective at planning for learning in the EYFS with this book.
*Explore the wider context of children's learning
*Make professional, informed decisions to support all children
*Use statutory and non-statutory guidance appropriately
*Be responsive to children's individual needs
*Capitalize on learning opportunities as they arise
*Be an advocate for child-centred planning
This book provides useful information on planning in the child centred environment. Particularly useful for preschool teachers and primary school - Junior infants or reception level, when planning play focused activities with a child led approach.
This will be ideal for students who are going out on placement and are asked to plan activities to align with children's development. It will also be a good point of reference for those students doing the Graduate Practitioner Competencies
This is practical and comprehensive introduction to planning which will be useful for our level 4 and 5 students who are preparing for placement. The case studies and reflection activities provide helpful ideas for discussion points in sessions.
An excellent resource for student practitioners to consider how the child can be central to their practice in planning for effective learning in the EYFS.
I am using this with my level 3 students as well as Foundation Degree students.
