As part of our commitment to reflective practice and developing new approaches to early years work, we offered our practitioners the opportunity to apply for a bursary to support them in carrying out a small-scale piece of work on a topic of their interest.
As part of the work, the practitioners completed a short report in order to share their learning which are available below. We will also be producing a series of podcasts discussing this work, to be launched autumn/winter 2019.
Including Quiet Children in Early Years Foundation Stage Music - Cathleen Cheshire
Adding Music to the Process of Helicopter Stories - Penny Osmond
Using Popular Music in Early Years Education - Ellie Rashid
All provision was offered to participants free of charge. Work was carried out under the Creative Futures Practitioner Conduct Agreement and Ethical Policy and ethical procedures and concerns were discussed with Vanessa Stansall, Creative Producer.
