Observation, Assessment and Planning are fundamental to seeing and understanding young children’s development, learning and progress. They also inform how you shape your curriculum to meet all children’s needs bringing together multiple perspectives from home, culture and community as well as the dispositions, skills and knowledge to become a life-long learner.
Di will be looking at how to use the Ranges and Overlapping Ovals from Birth to Five Matters to follow children’s development and progress, and will be showing how practitioners can make a professionally informed decision without using any tick lists – focusing on what you know about the unique child.
In this two-part course we will focus on
- how the process of Observation, Assessment and Planning is at the core of children’s development, learning and progress
- using your professional skills as an observer to make informed decisions about children’s development and how you support and extend their learning
- making links between the EYFS Statutory Framework, children’s development (Birth to 5 Matters) and the Ofsted EIF
- exploring the differences between developmental progression and curriculum progression and their relationship to Observation, Assessment and Planning
- the child, sharing examples from practice, including how to ensure that observation and documentation of children’s development and learning is meaningful, purposeful, respectful and SMART
The course will take place on the following dates and times:
Session 1: 21st October, 4pm-5.30pm
Session 2: 3rd November, 4pm-5.30pm
