The Future Zone Early Years Network was launched in Spring 2017 to compliment the support and training provided by the Islington EYFS team.
The Network consists of EYFS coordinators from FZ primary schools. The Network’s aim is to encourage shared practice and create a supportive environment for EYFS practitioners to discuss best practice.
In 2021 the Early Years’ Network received fantastic training session hosted by Greg Bottrill (the author of ‘Can I go and Play Now?’) The session focussed on creating play-based mark making opportunities for Nursery and Reception aged children. The Early Years Network were invited to participate in a research project looking at transforming outdoor learning in urban settings. This research project is based on Greg Bottrill’s Adventure Island concept.
The network meets once per term and consists of EYFS practitioners from each of the primary schools. The network aims to inspire best practice by allowing practitioners to experience a range of settings.
