INTENT: what do you hope that children will learn? What is the thinking that underpins the choice of activities and experiences that you have planned?

IMPLEMENTATION: how you deliver activities and experiences and if they meet the needs of all children?

IMPACT: What have children learned? How do you know? What will you plan next?

This training will give you the opportunity to think about your own teaching and develop the ability to articulate what you do and why you do it.
