On 26th September 2022 at 7pm UK time, consultant, trainer and author Dr Sue Allingham will be hosting a free Famly Sessions webinar called ‘Owning the curriculum – what does it mean in the Early Years?’
Sue will cover topics such as what is meant by ‘curriculum’, what it means for us and what this requires of us in our practice, provision and pedagogy, as well as how we can create a curriculum for our own setting.
Since the beginning of the revised statutory framework as the ‘Early Adopter’ draft, the word ‘curriculum’ has become high profile in a way that the sector hasn’t been used to.
In fact, we have always had a curriculum, and now is the perfect time to reclaim the word, own it, and demonstrate to others what it means.
In this session, we will define what is meant by ‘curriculum’, what it means for us and what this requires of us in our practice, provision and pedagogy.
These can be confusing times, even if we have worked in the sector for a long time. By examining what ‘curriculum’ means in the Early Years, we can then move forward to why we need to understand it, and finally how we can create a curriculum for our own setting, says Sue Allingham.
The session will be followed by a 20-minute question and answer session.
