The Key Issues series addresses some of the major challenges facing early years settings and primary schools. This new title looks at how, through questioning, practitioners can promote a more personalised learning led curriculum which is driven and led by learner's interests and thoughts. It will provide practical examples to inspire practitioners to focus on the use of questioning in their setting and it will highlight how all the strands of the EYFS can be covered through enquiry-based learning.
