In this mini-course, designed to give you a taste of the full course, you’ll be taken through the course outcomes and aims, and what you need to complete this course.
Moving on to unit 2, you’ll dive into why moving matters. You’ll look at why the Early Years are so important and why a moving child is a learning child. You’ll think about what constitutes a healthy childhood and learn about containerisation. You’ll consider statutory and non-statutory guidance, looking at the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile, the Early Inspection Framework and the Reading Framework. You’ll consider what impediments are impacting early childhood physical inactivity and obesity.
The full course is aimed specifically at classroom teachers and looks at blending both academia and movement to create a kinaesthetic classroom. The focus is around developmentally appropriate provision and applying a child-centred approach to learning to deliver the early learning goals and support continuous provision into KS1.
Through both practical and theoretical content, you will gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to create an inspiring physical environment to engage children aged 3 – 7 years in all subject areas and support holistic development.
