I am in the final year of my Early Years Degree and am compiling my dissertation. I am conducting research into the most appropriate/advantageous curriculum for children in Year 1 (age 5/6) and am looking to canvass some opinions of some EY professionals as part of my preliminary research. Please consider: * curriculum content and delivery * EYFS and National curriculum * play- based as opposed to a more prescriptive curriculum * subject disciplines versus 'areas of learning'. * the child's holistic development and overal well-being *the transition from reception to Year 1. All user names will be kept confidential for ethical raesons and please only respond if you are happy for me to utilize your comments to inform my major project. Thank you for taking time out to read this and thank you in advance to anyone who can offer an insight.
