The Three R’s: Reading, Writing and Maths


Course Details

This course responds to a real need in EYFS to clarify good practice in the light of Bold Beginnings – the 2017 Ofsted report into early years.

The three R’s have long been recognised as playing a crucial role in the early years curriculum and require dedicated teaching time considering what works most effectively for young children.

This training will help managers and leaders understand what effective practice should look like in EYFS. It will also assist teachers and support staff in understanding their role in teaching and learning reading, writing and maths.

How, when and where to teach reading, writing and maths most effectively.

Learning Outcomes:

• Understand how the recommendations of Bold Beginnings fit alongside other Ofsted and DfE documentation, and how they can be incorporated into developmentally appropriate practice.
• Look at how, when and where the teaching of reading, writing and maths can be covered in the daily practice of the reception class.
• Provide ideas for both child initiated and adult directed learning.
• Take away simple, manageable planning strategies for the 3 R’s.
