Event Description
Being in a small school and teaching across key stages can mean there are certain challenges with expectations and provision. This course will explore successful strategies for meeting the needs of children within a mixed cohort of Nursery/Reception or Foundation Stage/Key Stage 1.

This course will consist of three webinar sessions with the opportunity to reflect on practice and share ideas.
Training objectives

  • to identify the challenges of working with children in a mixed age cohort and develop strategies to address them

  • to understand how implementing EYFS principles into Key Stage 1 is most beneficial and exploring ways to accomplish this

  • to share best practice digitally with colleagues across Hertfordshire who work in similar environments

Learning outcomes

  • better understand how planned and enhanced provision can be adapted to meet the learning needs of a mixed age class

  • explore ideas on how to effectively adapt the learning environment to meet the developmental needs of a mixed cohort

  • be able to apply the principles of EYFS practice across a mixed age class to provide high quality education for all
