Not Planning Again


 Share

Recommended Posts

Read through many posts on planning and taken away ideas and downloads :o just a bit of help on, recording what has been done, normally through obs and then added to the childs learning journey, how is it possible for example if 30 children have participated in the adult led activty to evavulate this, see now am confused has any nice people got any examples of how they record.

ours was sticky labels so it did nto have to be re written... just stuck in LJ

 

but we also did an A4 sheet with activity at top, and then divided into columns for child.. and comments.. and next step

 

we could then have an overview of the activity, who accessed it.. etc.. only needed a word or two written which could be expanded if needed.. when set up in advance it didnt take long to write in a name and comment while doing the activity.

 

they keyworkers then used this to add to folders,

 

evaluation/ changes/ improvements / enhancements etc could be written on the back -

 

we had one with speech bubbles on it too to record language during an activity which would be in the middle circle and the speech recorded around it.. we would often put a picture in the middle of the activity and display these for the parents..

Do you mean all 30 children participating at the same time in a 'full group' adult led activity?

 

Could you explain what type of activity you are thinking of?

good thinking Peggy.. we were assuming all children in smaller groups..

 

but in one large group we would have a second person recording during the activity... and doing the observing while supporting the staff member doing the activity...

Depending on the type of activity, and what you want to gain from the observation would depend on the type of obs to use, ie: if, for example a PE activity, where you want to find out whether boys are more involved than girls, a tracking obs could record first boys movements, then girls and then be compared.

 

So, it's about the aim of the obs to decide what method of obs to use.

The 30 children partaking of the same activity could be working in small groups ,over the week ,eg all baking....they would all bring different experiences to the activity and the talking and sharing ,and the activity itself ,learning a new skill...they would all surely learn something?

I agree Tinkerbell, each child or small group certainly does bring own thoughts and ideas, and may use different processes to aide their learning. Even though the activity may be the same at its starting point. Thats where you get the uniqueness of each child and any obs made.

I would not have 30 children partake in an activity because what have 30 children gained from all doing the same? their interests would all be different.

sorry should have explained better :o at the moment through observing gaps in the childrens learning these taken fron there records using the development matters oversheet, we have noticed multicultral so our adult led will be using the persona doll and many other ways, you all no that she is a special visitor to discuss her special book where she comes from etc, to be done in small groups if the children want to join in, if over the week 30 CHILDREN? joined in just ways to record this for planning and evaluation we wil have our own obs etc.
