Changes To Weekly Structure/timetable


Recommended Posts

I am in the process of changing my daily/weekly structure/planned activities. I was finding that I never had any time to sit back and watch my children, do observations, and enjoy teaching them. there was always something I hadn't done or a group i hadn't managed to work with.

So as of tomorrow I am doing a phonics session (20 mins) followed by dedicated guided reading time (I found I never had enough time to hear each group over the week!) everyday. Thats after morning play. Before morning play- on 3 days a have a good chunk of time to devote to either literacy or numeracy. On the other days I have an ICT slot and a PE slot. One afternoon I have another PE slot, leaving the other 4 afternoons to do other literacy/numeracy/KUW/creative/Physical/PSE activities although I often have 2 running at the same time. I hope to dedicate one afternoon to observations.

I was running myself ragged trying to fit everything in and I feel much happier now I have stopped and thought about where my priorities lie for the children in my class.


So- do you think that sounds ok? How do other people plan their week? It's ok not to do proper literacy and numeracy everyday isn't it??


After all I will be doing phonics daily as it's made a real impact on my class and have set aside time for reading which I feel are more important at this point. After all the 6 areas of learning are suppose to be equal (Ok I know I still have a bias for literacy!!)


I just need some reassurance that the changes I've made sound sensible.


Thanks. Bethie xx
