EYFS – Planning for Learning. Skills, Knowledge, Concepts – what children can do, know and understand. This publication will support practitioners in EYFS (nursery and reception) with planning a curriculum to meet the learning needs of the children in their school or setting. The document identifies an overview of the key learning (skills, knowledge and concepts) across all seven areas of learning and development to support learning with the EYFS phase to prepare children for their next stage of education. Schools can reflect on the key learning outlined in this document and identify those which are appropriate for the needs of their children and, if necessary add additional skills, knowledge and concepts specific to the context of the school or a particular cohort. As the Early Learning Goals are used to assess a child’s attainment at the end of EYFS, this document will support practitioners in providing a curriculum which goes beyond that which is assessed.

Art and Design Progression

(0)
Written by Alison Kirk (Associate Consultant for Art and Design), Art and Design Progression from LPDS builds on the Lancashire Key Learning for Art and Design by introducing suggested Year Group Expectations within each of the separate areas of media that children should work with across Early Years and the Primary phase. It exemplifies progression in the eight areas covered. Schools should aim to cover up to 3 different media types each year, and ensure wide coverage of media across each age phase (EYFS/KS1, LKS2 and UKS2). Therefore, the expectations within any given year group should be considered alongside those of the adjacent year group in the same age phase.

History Unit Planning Guidance. Year 2 Summer Term - Buckets and Spades. Events beyond living memory or places in their locality – the seaside then and now. In this theme, children learn about holidays in the past compared with holidays now.

Embedding historical enquiry, chronology and communication within a sequence of learning Skills have been specifically identified for this unit from Key Learning in history. This updated, expanded unit contains new ideas and approaches for planning history through a sequence of lesson ideas with more detailed guidance on historical enquiry, chronology, knowledge, understanding, vocabulary and communicating findings. Comprehensive lists of suggested texts and direct links to specific film clips and resources are contained within the unit. This unit will help provide teachers with a wealth of creative strategies that reinforce, enhance and transform learning within an effective teaching sequence. Cross curricular links Although this unit will stand alone, it can be planned to run alongside a Science unit based on materials where children investigate suitable properties for making buckets, hats and helmets, trampolines and sandcastles, and it could provide a focus for writing explanation texts to explore why and how materials are suitable, or not. In English, poems could be linked to the history context of seaside holidays in the past where children include details about objects or ideas such as ice cream, the promenade or souvenirs. In Art and Design, children could work independently or in groups to create small or large scale collages, using materials collected and chosen to suit the theme. Many contemporary artists use the seaside to inspire their works of art including Abigail Mill, Jayne Huskisson and Serena Hall.
