Physical Development in the Early Years

The four home countries’ Chief Medical Officers for England recommend three hours of physical activity a day for early years children (‘Start Active, Stay Active’ report, 2011). It is good practice to have a mix of free play movement and some directed movement using both inside and outside areas.

Physical development underpins all the other areas of EYFS and thankfully Ofsted has recognised the need for settings to get children more active.

Not only are childhood obesity figures rising but we have research to show that a lack of physical development opportunities can have far wider impli ...

Managing Group Times in Early Years

According to the ‘Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage’ (April 2017), “There are seven areas of learning and development that must shape educational programmes in early years settings.

Fun with Sounds - Laying the Foundations for Early Phonics

‘Phonics is a way of teaching children how to read and write. It helps children hear, identify and use different sounds that distinguish one word from another in English. If children are able to understand phonics it will help them know which letters to use when they write words’ (National Literacy Trust, 2018). Phonics education is driven from the Department for Education and this course has been developed on recommendations from government policy.

Clearly, providing rich opportunities for singing, saying rhymes and moving to music is an essential element of high quality early years practi ...

The Laughter Factor

This course will explore the relationship between positive well being and learning for children. It will explore recent research and consider how laughter for children impacts the context for learning and its consolidation.

Rana Esseily (2015) conducted research on babies as young 18 months old, which showed that laughter resulted in babies learning more of the target actions than those in the control group who were not laughing during the learning period. Esseily hypothesizes that laughter may help with learning because dopamine released while laughing enhances learning.

This course is ...
