Executive Functioning in the EYFS
February 10, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm£40.00
‘Executive function and self-regulation skills are the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully. Just as an air traffic control system at a busy airport safely manages the arrivals and departures of many aircraft on multiple runways, the brain needs this skill set to filter distractions, prioritize tasks, set and achieve goals, and control impulses’. Center on the Developing Child, Harvard University, 2011
This session will explore what this might look like in practice and how we can understand more about how very young children learn. We will consider how these skills link to language development and play, relationships with others, the learning environment and Characteristics of Effective Learning. We will share some practical strategies and routines and explore how small groups led by adults that support children to plan and review their learning can be a powerful tool.
