Continuity & Transition Project 2019 - Day #2

Thriving People - Capable Learners

      Register for Day 2 by Wednesday 22 May 2019

      Cost - $25.00 (includes morning tea and lunch)

      Starting school is a major event in the life of children and their families. How children continue to flourish as they experience the multiple challenges and opportunities brought about by the transition to school, will be strongly influenced by the context and practices of the school community.

      This is the second of our project days where we explore the challenges and opportunities for children’s learning, growth and development in the processes of starting school. At this workshop Dr Cathie Harrison, who is a significant researcher in this area, will also join us. Our agenda includes:

      Reflecting on our progress to date using:

      • Dialogue together
      • The ‘Transition to School Rubric’
      • One school’s story – a participant from the 2018 research group will share their experiences
      • Dr Cathie Harrison will join us to share some of the latest research in this area

      Transforming our pedagogy:

      • How we undertake ‘Continuity & Transition’ practice through the lens of children’s development and learning, the EYLF, the Australian Curriculum Foundation Stage.
      • Consider documentation and assessment of children’s learning as an aspect of continuity and transition.

        Please keep a copy of your registration confirmation for your professional portfolio.
