SA Course Header - DSS Transitions Yr1

In the second episode of Dr Sue's Surgery (also the second in the 'Transition' series),  Sue looks at Transitions into Year 1 - how to support children as they move from Reception to Year 1 – preparing them for the change, helping them to understand what to expect both emotionally and physically.

Sue discusses the importance of building on what has gone before and why a knowledge of stages of development is important; with links to the EYFS Statutory Framework, she demonstrates how the Key Stage One curriculum builds up on the Areas of Learning covers specific questions, built into the presentation, that were submitted by the participants in advance of the original live session.

The first module is a copy of handouts that you might find useful to have to hand while watching / working through the recorded presentation and to keep for future reference plus some useful links.

The second module is the recorded presentation itself, for you to watch at your leisure; you can pause and rewind as you see fit and you also have access to refer to this time and time again.

Finally, the third and last module is the reflective questions that Sue poses at the end of her presentation in a downloadable format where you can jot down your thoughts if you wish.

Sue will be holding monthly episodes of Dr Sue's Surgery commencing in September 2023, covering various subjects to support you in your Practice. Keep in touch with Sue on Social Media or check back here on the website for announcements of future episodes. 

"Education must be based on research and reflection. Pedagogy must be underpinned by understanding of children and developmentally informed practice."
