Course aim
Transition between Early Years and Year 1 is always a crucial time for children, parents, and schools and, under current circumstances, transition of children into Year 1 will be significant challenge for schools.
This training and the accompanying guidance materials are designed to support leaders and teachers to reflect on and revise transition processes and provide a developmentally appropriate curriculum in Year 1 for children who have missed out on a significant portion of their Reception year experience.

Target audience: EYFSCOs and Reception teachers, Year 1 teachers
For most impact, Reception and Year 1 teachers should both attend.
Pre-course Information
This training is fully funded by Oxfordshire Early Years. However, if you book a place but do not attend the session, and have not cancelled your place via Oxfordshire CPD Online within 48 hours of the start of the training, you will be charged £10.

By the end of the training participants will be able to:

  • understand the emotional needs of the children and what needs to be considered when helping them to readjust to school life

  • plan the transition process for children due to move from Reception to Year 1 in September/Autumn 2020

  • adapt the Year 1 curriculum and create a developmentally appropriate learning environment to best support the children who have had a disrupted Reception year

  • identify approaches to teaching and learning that respond to the widened learning gap for some vunerable learners/children with SEND or additional needs
