The first 200 words of this essay...
Throughout history, the Early Years Curriculum has been transformed due to the impact of education reports and increased intervention of the government. Major reports such as The Plowden Report "Children and their Primary schools" (1967) and The Rumbold Report "Starting with Quality" (1990) have had a significant impact on the Early Years curriculum today. Both reports offer similar perspectives on teaching and learning and they have the same goal, improving society through education and ensuring that the child is at the centre. However The Plowden Report mainly focuses on primary education while The Rumbold Report focuses entirely on Early Years education. This essay proposes to critically analyse the impact of these two reports on teaching and learning with reference to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
The Plowden Report focuses on a curriculum based on children's individual needs and interests and that play should be an integral part for children to learn (Gillard, 2004). The Rumbold Report strongly believed in the quality of an Early Year's education and suggested a new curriculum that was based on eight main areas of learning and emphasises that children should learn through active, first-hand experiences in a prepared environment (Rumbold, 1990).
