      Feedback

      Really good link between theory and practice with lots of examples. Useful interactive activities that helped secure learning. The remote learning worked well with opportunities to interact / share ideas with colleagues as well as ask questions of the host/each other Jayne Metcalfe

      Very informative without overloading. The resources used were clear and concise and the knowledge list was really useful to know what can be taught in KS1 and EYFS. The teaching approaches were really helpful and will help inform teachers of where the planning is heading. Jacqui French
