Planning for interests of the child


 Share

Recommended Posts

hi, not quite sure what you mean by 'staff are struggling to extend children's interests within the setting' ? maybe the children aren't interested in whats planned/available after all, or are but only for a short time (i'd be more worried if they were interested in only one thing for a whole session), we plan many activities because we think it will interest a certain child, only to find when you ask if they'd like to do it they say "No" ....but every other child has loved it...or do you mean that staff are not getting how to use children's interests to plan and understand what activities resources to offer to promote that interest and then how to add things to enhance the interest ? CP sheets can be useful to show staff what could be added to areas/activities to extend/enhance learning.

Hi,

 

Yes sorry I wasn't very clear in my post.

 

The staff are finding it difficult to extend the interest (for example a child makes sand castles in the moon sand and spends time doing so, whenever the moon sand is out in the session the child spends time building sand castles ) The staff are not understanding how to take an interest observed and extend it.

 

What is a CP ?
