Observation training


Recommended Posts

Hello as a staff team we have agreed to use part of our next staff meeting to have a bit of training on purposeful observations.


I'm hoping that some of you lovely people will be able to share with me if you have done this with your team and what you included.

Thank you.

Not really done this are a whole group session, I have always used supervision and 1-1 time to talk through this with the staff and children in my team. during this time we have looked at our observation sheets (both long and short) and spoke about what we are using them for and how to implement their finding into the nursery planning and are these are giving us the information we need about the children or are they just being done for the sake of it

We have used video clips to watch together with an observation focus, filling in our own observation records and then discussing the differences in what we saw.

Also this is brilliant to illustrate that we don't always see what's there, don't say anything about it before you show it! I was asked to count the number of times the ball was thrown.
