How free is the Welsh Foundation Phase?

Discussion in 'Cymru - education news' started by DexterDolittle, Oct 23, 2013.

  1. Daft question perhaps, but how does the child-centric approach manifest itself in practice? Say for example, the teacher introduces a lesson on snails and then sets the children off on a task painting shells, could a child complete the task early and relocate themselves to a reading corner with a book they've located on snails and then make up a song about spirals to sing to the class. Or, is the foundation phase really just what went on before but with some tweaks - more group tasks, less worksheets and longer playtimes?
