CUSP Early Foundations

About CUSP Early Foundations

What an amazing launch we had on 28 March 2023! If you were unable to make the webinar or simply want to revisit you can view the launch and download the slides!

This 45 minute webinar takes you through the core elements of the CUSP EYFS offer that will be released to schools over the coming term.

  1. Foundational Knowledge for each area of learning
  2. Opportunities and experiences for building this foundational knowledge
  3. Structured story time planning to build knowledge and language

This session includes:

  • An overview of how the three core elements will work together
  • A first look at how Structured Storytime can be used as the basis for core learning
  • A walk through of the beautiful Literature Spines:
    • 2-3 year old
    • 3-4 year old
    • 4-5 year old
