Supporting Pedagogy and Practice in Early Years Settings

Supporting Pedagogy and Practice in Early Years Settings

July 2010 | 176 pages | Learning Matters
To achieve EYPS, candidates must understand the Early Years Foundation stage (EYFS), and how to put it into practice. This text supports those on all EYPS pathways to extend their knowledge and understanding of effective pedagogy within the context of the EYFS. It begins by looking at effective practice in the EYFS and how research has informed recent initiatives. It goes on to cover children's learning and development, safe and stimulating environments and the role of the adult. The text considers how EYPs can support others in their practice to improve the delivery of learning throughout their setting.

A useful text in general. In particular, the chapter on Sustained Shared Thinking is clearly written with thought-provoking case studies. This will provide a useful introduction to Early Years Practice for our students.

Although there are some interesting sections e.g. discussion around the environment, SST and differing approaches to learning on the whole this book is more suited to UG students or those studying the FdA. It might be supportive for one of our 3-7 PGCE students who needs to know more about the youngest children. The reflective tasks are useful and may be adapted and up-dated for our PGCE students.
