Jackie worked with us to develop teaching and learning, in the EYFS outdoor area. She audited the provision, provided the leadership team and EYFS staff with clear feedback and next steps. Jackie modelled lessons for all staff and provided numerous ideas for extending the provision to provide opportunities for following children’s interests and develop critical thinking through problem-solving and collaboration.
The impact of this support, over the course of a half term, was noted during a visit by the local authority, in March 2018, which stated that “Wide sweeping changes have been implemented and to good effect since the review in January…. the outside provision is rich, stimulating and engaging for children…. The EYFS outside area is now buzzing with excitement and providing children with meaningful activities to become confident, curious learners.”
