I would really appreciate comments re: attached planning format! I have been really struggling to come up with a new planning format to cover the Reformed EYFS.
Each week I put up a blank planning sheet on the noticeboard. Staff add their observations in the appropriate area, e.g.
CREATIVE DEVELOPMENT (as was)
1. Child X running her fingers over the wet messy mat, says "My fingers are ice skating".
Buy shaving foam for tactile play on messy mats - later, add paint and take prints.
Of course, we may already have shaving foam in the cupboard, so the child's interests would be followed up immediately - but the activity/obs would still be written on the planning sheet and marked as actioned, with further observation taking place and subsequently recorded in the learning journey.
This is just an example.
Please help, I'm getting in such a muddle with this and want to get it right for September - all comments appreciated!
