:: New to Year 1 ::
Outline
There are specific needs and challenges involved in managing children's transition from Early Years Foundation Stage to Key Stage 1. Effective management of this transition will help children to sustain good progress. Some children may need extra support and all children benefit from positive planning matched to their needs. This course is for classroom teachers new to Year 1 or those wanting to further develop Year 1 practice. It draws upon the expertise of the Early Years and Primary Teaching and Learning teams to share practical strategies to develop children's independent and structured learning skills in Year 1. During the session delegates will consider the need to adapt their teaching style, timetabling, and the structure of the curriculum as the year progresses. They will also look at developing subject knowledge and use of the assessment tools required.
