Alistair Bryce-Clegg talks Child Led Learning in the Early Years

By  | 

There was a time in Early Years where ‘topic’ was king! Often these topics would be linked to National Curriculum subjects and would last for a whole half term. I remember once being asked to do a topic with my Reception children which was to include the 7 main types of housing in Great Britain. I am still not sure why Reception children need to know that – but seemingly they did!

Your topic wasn’t just a concept that you introduced the children to, it was all encompassing. Whatever you were talking about was also the theme for every and all activities that the children were invited to take part in.

    Hallelujah! So refreshing to read what I, as a former Reception teacher and Early Years Advisor, have always thought. More like this please.
