Could You Just Have A Look At Our Planning Thanks

HI all.

 

like many of you we have played around with our planning loads. following a training course we got to the point that we did no weekly planning at all, but did have comprehensive continuous provision plans in place. instead our time was spent creating the most wonderful learning journey's for the children (a very time consuming task believe me). however staff felt they were getting bogged down and the chidren's choice was not being documented.

 

i have looked at numerous planning examples on the EYFS disc and on here, and i have looked at my friends planning from her nursery. to be honest the lengthy adult led plans do not sit well with me. i do not understand why staff need to write out the resources they would like per activity and the language they would use, especially when the staff are largely trained anyhow. we do have the continuous plans, which can give staff ideas should they want them. so i have adapted a weekly plan that does not really mean that staff have to write in huge depth their intentions (planning doc).

 

to run alongside that file is observation sheets for the children (observation sheet file), and a next step table for the keyworker so they can keep track of the next steps and mark them off when addressed (next steps sheet file)

 

do you think this will meet requirements?, your thoughts and ideas are greatly appreciated.

 

thanks Dawn

Hello Dawn,

 

I have looked at your sheets and it is difficult to say whether they would meet requirements or not because they are blank and it depends what you are writing in the boxes. For example do you write in the activity or the learning objective? And is the evaluation box to evaluate the activity or the children? I do not want to appear negative but without more information it will be difficult to give you a more detailed response. Also, do you use a 'next step' sheet for each of the six areas of learning or are they generic to the whole curriculum?

They look good - I've put them into an older version of word for those people who can't open the later version

In the boxes we would write the activity and aim, for example water, jugs and funnels to develop pouring skills, language use full, empty etc. then in the children column we would write what the children chose. only a selection of choices tho. then in the evaluation per day we would briefly summarise what happened, ie all children went to water, several poured etc (of course individual observations would be made too) so the evaluation is rather broad. the areas of EYFS covered will be circled.

then on the bottom part we will evaluate the week around EYFS principles. next steps from each day where possible will flow into the next day and if it would not target relevant child it would then be added to that child's 'next step' list on the next step chart.

 

the next step chart will be for general next steps, invaribly some of them will cover all six areas, some may be more focused.

 

hope that gives a clearer picture :o
