What do 4-year-olds know: how to better understand the abilities of your reception pupils to meet their learning needs
Tues 21st Nov, 4pm

Children starting Reception class in schools in England are at the beginning of their ‘full time’ educational journey, but they are likely to start from very different places. Teachers must have a clear understanding of the knowledge and skills that all their children have on entry to Reception class, so that support and challenge may be provided where needed.

In this webinar, Dr Chris Jellis, Senior Research Associate at Cambridge CEM, will present the findings of our paper, “What do 4-year-olds know and what can they do?”. This paper analysed 70,000 BASE assessments, our Reception baseline assessment, to understand what a ‘typical’ four-year-old knows and can do.

We’ll discuss some of our key findings, including how many children can recognise letters of the alphabet, 2-D shapes, digits and more. 

Who is this for?

This webinar is ideal for Educators, Early Years Practitioners, Head Teachers, Deputy Heads, Pastoral Leads, Heads of Department and Teachers.

Not free to attend? You can still sign up; the recording will be sent to all registrants after the webinar.

We hope to see you there!
