Delivered by Di Chilvers, this webinar will explore why the Observation, Assessment and Planning (OAP) cycle should be at the very heart of teaching practice.

Keeping the Observation, Assessment and Planning (OAP) cycle at the heart of practice enables practitioners to build on children’s motivations and interests to support and extend their development and learning. The curriculum is co-constructed between children, practitioners and families through this process. (Birth to 5 Matters, 2021:39).

Held over two sessions, these webinars will focus on:
• The connection between observation, assessment and planning and the curriculum
• Explaining the process through the OAP holistic diagram in Birth to 5 Matters (p.38)
• Children’s experiences of the curriculum - how to use observation to see their motivations, interests, involvement, development and learning
• Children and adults constructing the curriculum together - how a dynamic curriculum can respond to children’s funds of knowledge, their families and community
• Making links between the EYFS Statutory Framework and the Ofsted EIF
• Discussion about a unique curriculum recipe – what will be included?

Sessions dates are:
• Session 1 - 5th May - 4pm-5.30pm
• Session 2 - 19th May - 4pm-5.30pm.
