Physical Development in the Early Years (Cancelled)

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 ...

Recent reports in the news have suggested that EAL pupils are now overtaking their monolingual peers in achievement. Although this is true for many pupils from multilingual backgrounds, Hutchinson (Bell Foundation, 2018) stresses the need for us to focus on the heterogeneity of this group, and the significant needs of particular young people who arrive new, and/or who face significant ineq ...
