Hey All,

 

I have finally completed my Qts and have a job in a reception class which has been run like yr 1. I am trying to structure the day and I am finding it tricky fitting everything in.

 

Any advice would be gratefully received :o

Firstly congratulations from an NQT!

 

I am a nursery teacher but we run as a foundation stage unit. The reception class have their topic input at 9 - 9.15. then freeflow play and focus groups. At 11.30 they have phonics for 15mins and then lunch. At 1pm they have a numeracy input for 15mins then freeflow play and focus groups. At the end of the day they have singing and story.

 

(By input i mean teaching time)

 

Not sure if this helps....

this has been talked about lots on here, have you tired a search

 

heres a link to some i have found:

 

Receptiondaily/ weekly organisation

 

Rec: how are you fitting it all in

 

Hope that helps, i was new to reception last sepember after mvoing from a nursery, i think you have to adapt your timetable throughout the year as when they first come in its more about getting to know them, working on PSED and teaching them how to assess the environement then slowly introducing more adult inputs, phonics and reading ect.. untill the summer term when you are introducing more stucture e.g. at my school thats going to assembly, having playtime and sometimes doing the register but remeber it all depends on your cohort of children and what they need.

Fantastic and thank you for the links. Is there a statutory requiement as to how many CLL and PSRN inputs there should be in week. I have seen it vary from setting to setting and different teachers say different things.

 

The current timetable allows one half hour am CI and one - 45 min CI pm. I am hoping to obviously extend this but the school is currently happy with the old timetable BUT have said they are open to change.

How do you convince the powers that be, that they are not just 'playing'?

Just playing?? Just????

 

I wouldn't be trying to convince them. I would state that you are an experience specialist in Early Years, give them the link to the framework, then tell them to read it and come back with any questions once they have read it.

 

But I am feeling bolshy today :)
