About The Course

About this course

This one and a half hour webinar will cover;

How the expectations of the” knowledge and understanding of the world” component of the revised EYFS framework have been made more demanding with additional wording on teaching “Past and Present”.

How EYFS pupils might be practically taught “Past and Present” by learning about the passage of time through sequencing and evidence handling

How teaching about past and present in EYFS prepares pupils for being taught about chronology, a sense of period and the duration of periods at KS1 and 2

How different story texts that can be used in EYFS can also teach pupils to spot similarities and differences between a past setting and the present as well about the passage of time.
