Long Term Planning


Guest

Hi

 

we don't do long term planning is this wrong?,

we do have a yearly overview of the topics we will cover but that's it.

 

we don't have a medium term plan as such only a breakdown of craft activities / other activities we will cover via the topic.

Our planning has moved to being very child inititated and as such is 'planned' for daily.

 

ofsted have not seen our plans yet so i don't know if i am right or wrong in the way i am doing things.

 

how do others do it?

We do and Ofsted have ssen ours and 'approved' them - I couldn't manage without ours so it might be that it's what works for you and your team - however I thgouhgt you needed to have a long term plan, but sorry officially I cannot say if you do or not, someone will be able to say, maybe your overview is just as good. :)

The only thing I'd say is that as long as you can prove to ofsted that you are covering the 6 areas of learning, enabling children to develop towards the ELG,s, during their time with you, the methods are entirely up to you.

It's the proving the coverage, and that planning is based on childrens observed development, where they are now and how you know which areas to focus on to enable their progression.

Im two weeks into a new planning format based on observations we make throughout the week of our children our long term planning is general it outlines our aims and objectives for the coming year and what skills we would hope the children will gain by the time they leave us.

Medium plans highlight what skills we are likely to introduce but are not set in stone.

weekly plans work on the interests of the children and specific needs of the individual child i find this way of planning easy but like Peggy said as long as you can prove you are covering the 6 areas of learning then go with what suits your setting

thanks

 

each day we do a planned activity which covers many aspects of the six areas of learning (as do most activities anyway!) and on our planned sheets we identify which areas of learning we develop. we do the same for Birth to three.... these plans are our 'evidence' so to speak that our activities are developing the six areas / 4 componments.

We also have displayed infor about how our environment develops the children in the long term (guess that could work as a long term plan?)
