Continuous Provision Conference with Anna Ephgrave

Wednesday, June 22, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Anna Ephgrave – Planning in the Moment as Children Play

Anna Ephgrave has been teaching for over 27 years. Her most recent post was Assistant Head Teacher responsible for the Early Years and Year One at Carterhatch Infant School, which was graded as Outstanding in its most recent inspection. Anna is an independent consultant, trainer and author, supporting practitioners both in the United Kingdom and abroad. She has written two very successful books for David Fulton, Routledge: The Reception Year in Action and The Nursery Year in Action.

The session will give delegates an understanding of the power of child-initiated play.  This will include a consideration of the role of the adult within play – which is to ‘observe, assess, plan and teach’ within an interaction.  There will be some practical suggestions to support staff to develop their environments and the experiences on offer to help with curriculum coverage.

James Johnson – Continuous Provision

James is the KS1 lead at St Paul’s CofE Primary School in Kent.  He was the last person to expect reaching 100,000 listens to his Spotify podcast, Mr J Talks, where he discusses all things to do with continuous provision! jhas spoken at conferences across the country and delivered webinars to thousands of people. His experience of meeting the demands of the national curriculum, recording learning that takes place in the classroom and installing continuous provision in both KS1 and KS2 makes him a must hear for school practitioners that are looking to try this unique approach.

In this session, James Johnson (Mr J Talks…) will take you through the journey of installing continuous provision into KS1 classrooms. He will share his experiences of being a federation wide KS1 leader and being a classroom teacher.
