Characteristics of Effective Learning are one of the most difficult things for practitioners to remember – we know this as we often ask ours to recall them and, for the most part, they remember about half of them. So, in order to support their knowledge and understanding of the Characteristics we have professionally designed and printed a full set of these and added in some useful hints and tips in ways in which adults can support these and what they can observe.
The Bundle consists of the following:
An A3 Poster which is ideal for placing on display boards or on your planning boards to reference. **New for 2018** These are now printed on NeverTear, a strong, durable, tear and water resistant material
A pack of nine A6 Postcards printed on one side. Ideal for placing on display boards or close to activities as a prompt for practitioners to plan and observe learning in these areas.
A Lanyard with a detachable ring with 9 cards printed front and back. Ideal for practitioners to wear to help prompt them throughout the day.
Each product in this bundle details all characteristics together with the statements from the EYFS. In addition to this ways in which adults can provide for and support each characteristic through creating the right environment or just simply giving children time to pursue activities.
Observing is often difficult also so we have included what to observe in each characteristic and this can feed into children’s learning journals and ensuring practitioners are considering the characteristics within children’s next steps by creating the right opportunities for them to experience these areas.
