CESA Continuity & Transition Project - Day #2

Starting school is a major event in the life of children and their families. Children's experience in adapting to dynamic and evolving environments directly affects their sense of identity, well-being and position within their community over the short and long term.  Since our first workshop in August 2016, you have researched some of the implications of continuity and transition for children including their learning environments, social groupings, roles and expectations.

This year we will continue to explore how children can still flourish as they experience the multiple challenges and opportunities brought about by the transition to school.  In doing that we will be reflecting on the strong influence of the context and practices of the school community.

For this second day of our series of 4 project days, we will explore the challenges and opportunities for children's learning, growth and development in the processes of starting school by:

  • Reflecting on our progress to date, including one school's story (if you have used the 'Transition to School Rubric' please bring it with you);
  • Developing our pedagogy: How we undertake 'Continuity & Transition' practice using the EYLF and the Australian Curriculum Foundation Stage;
  • Assessment and documentation of children's learning as an aspect of continuity and transition.
