Professor Chris Pascal from the Centre for Research in Early Childhood helps us to unpack the EYFS document and relate it to some of the children’s projects.
The children have been inspired by the visit of a ballerina and there has been a wealth of dance centred play. The children plan their own activities and have decided to make ballerina cakes. We look at how the physical, but more importantly emotional, environment can support this type of learning activity.
We also reflect on observation and assessment and see how both the children and practitioners make records of learning across projects.
