The Early Years Foundation Stage: The Arts and the new EYFS reforms with Nicola Burke

7:30pm - 9pm via Zoom

This session will explore The Arts in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) providing participants with an opportunity to explore the reforms to the EYFS becoming statutory from September 2021. Nicola will share information regarding EYFS documents and will clarify the statutory requirements and relevant materials. Participants will have an opportunity to look at guidance such as Development Matters, Musical Development Matters and Birth to Five Matters, the documents related to the learning and development of children from birth to 5 years old. The session will provide an opportunity to go through some myths surrounding the EYFS and ‘curriculum’ as well as provide an opportunity for participants to reflect upon their own practice in relation to children’s learning and development.

The session will involve a presentation, time for questions and discussions.

This Zoom training will support

  • Specialist practitioners who work in any art form including music, dance, theatre, visual and digital arts
  • Generalist practitioners who work in the Early Years sector

Booking closes 5pm on Thursday 2 September 21

The event is part of a series of events linked to our new Paul Hamlyn Foundation funded Making and Believing Early Years Creativity programme.
