An Introduction to Curriculum for 3 to 5 Year-Olds.
Moriarty, Viv; Siraj-Blatchford, Iram
Written for education students and early childhood practitioners who are implementing the Desirable Outcomes in programs in England and Wales, this book is a guide to planning the curriculum in the early years. The book is designed to be used in a range of settings, including playgroups, nurseries, and reception classes. The book considers several curriculum models in conjunction with the Desirable Outcomes. The guide identifies curriculum strategies that take into account differences in locality and context; it also explores cross-curricular themes such as citizenship and diversity, as well as ways to foster social skills and emotional development. The book further includes practical models for assessing children's abilities and valuing their achievements, and considers continuity and progression to school and the links between home and the early years settings.
