Definition Of Planning


Clare
 Share

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone had a good definition of what planning actually is? I have been reading and researching and I can't actually find a couple of sentences to tell us what it is although there is lots out there to say why we should do it and the benefits.

 

Any ideas? Thanks! :o

Well, in theory it's: 'Deciding ahead of time what activities and resources will be used in the session, to best suit the needs of the class and of the individuals within it, and to ensure that effective learning takes place.'

 

But in EYFS it ends up being something different, which I think is where much of the confusion about planning lies! In the EYFS you'd add a rider: 'The planning reflects the prior interests of the children, as understood from observations made by practitioners.'

:o Planning is a formative evaluation of observations on every unique childs stage of learning and development.

Thank you all for those. It seems to me that there isn't a definitive answer to my question, but that planning means different things to different practitioners. I am trying to now formulate a way of linking these to each other to form my own definition. It is for a presentation, so I think it should be ok to do this.
