Making Links between Learning in Early Childhood Education and School Using the "Key Competencies" Framework
Peters, Sally
Teachers and Curriculum, v8 p9-15 2005
When children start school it is not just a transition to a new physical context, but also an entry point to a new "culture" where aspects of teaching, learning and assessment are different, and hence what it means to be a learner is constructed differently. In recent years, there has been increasing interest in making links between school/earning and prior to school learning, but considerable debate about how this can be achieved, given the systemic differences between the two sectors. This paper explores some of the issues for teachers and considers the potential of the current curriculum developments to enhance these links.
