October 2016

In this issue

Welcome to the October 2016 issue of EYE. You will notice that we have redesigned the magazine to freshen things up. Inside you will find the same quality content, with a couple of new sections, offering a wide variety of articles that mix best practice, research, policy, latest developments, expert opinion and practical applications. In this issue we have:

  • Opinion articles from Neil Leitch (Pre-school Learning Alliance), Jan Dubiel (Early Excellence), and Kym Scott (Kym Scott Consultancy).
  • Our Focus article from Di Chilvers explores mapping children’s progress using Development Maps.
  • In the main body of the magazine, Peter Moss introduces OECD’s forthcoming cross-national early years assessments.
  • Penny Tassoni concludes her look at overcoming communication and language problems.
  • Jennie Johnson, on behalf of the National College of Teaching and Leadership explores why managers encourage staff to achieve Early Years Teacher Status.
  • Judith Stevens asks what we really know about maths teaching in the early years.
  • Janina Burmeister suggests ways of spotting a pre-school child who might have dyslexia.
  • Ruth Barley concludes her look at language and identity.
  • Gemma Cowley looks at how the sector would change if we were more successful at encouraging more men into the workforce.
  • Elizabeth Thomas investigates the effects of moving house on behaviour and learning.
  • Our new spotlight section focuses on the Early Years Nutrition Partnership.

Our practical section is full of interesting and ready-to-go ideas, including the benefits of having more staff trained in paediatric first aid – the first in a new series that will explore how you put policy into practice; the learning and development made possible in gardens; how we can encourage more children to become innovators; making the most of mud; activities based on World Space Week; and rhymes to get the most out of a Finger Gym box. Plus three pages of academic and picture book reviews.
