Q About Planning For Kuw


Guest

Recommended Posts

I apologise if this is a silly question but having moved from year 2 im trying to come to grips with planning for Reception.

 

If you are planning for KUW do you work from a scheme or medium or do you just decide each week what you want to cover-say investigating changes etc. Its just my school have said just that to me-that i decide (whereas in Year 2 we worked off a med term plan which guided you on concepts to cover-e.g senses)

 

Im so confused and a bit stressed that i may not cover all the outcomes if i am to choose them myself.

 

Not sure that makes any sense but hoping one of you will :o

In theory, the EYFS says you should plan from the children's interests.

 

In our pre-school, we kind of use 'projects' to do this. For instance, a child brought in some caterpillars on nettles, and we have a fairly newly built pond in our garden, so we're currently doing a bit of a project on life cycles.

 

The planning then becomes retrospective, with these activities noted on our continuous planning sheets.

Hi, I'm in reception. I generally plan for KUW within the continuous provision and topic. My topics are based on a mixture of things I know I need to cover, such as minibeasts and on the interests of the children. I tend to offer activities that the fit with the topic or interests of the children and then highlight the development matters statements as i cover them. Towards the end of the year I will plan in activities to meet any gaps.

 

Hope that helps. Good luck
