Wow Alistair, i have just come across your blog and am totally inspired by you and your work! it is what i have always strived for but havent quite been able to get it onto paper - i must have changed my planning about ten times - but thats what makes us better practitioners! i have always hated the fact that we have been made to do medium term plans in the FS- how can you when you dont know the children and what they are interested in? if you truly follow the children and their achievements/interests, how can you say what you are teaching/covering in two weeks time? it just doesnt work! i love your planning and am defiantly going to be using it - i am in reception and am sure it works just as well. I have been playing about with it and have a few questions - i have done an "example" so i can get my head around it and show it to my staff - can i send it to you? i havent completed a blog before so im not sure how you do it! A few questions: Do you use a weekly plan to say what activity you will be doing each day or do you adult daily planners cover this? Will you give each adult a copy of this so they know what they are doing? Do you have weekly planning meetings with the children to ask them what they would like to do in their learning - in order to gain your child intiated info - or do you simply observe them and use what they are interested in their play as a basis for this - im so sorry to ask so many questions! Thanks once again for the amazing advice and info you are sharing! it is absolutely fab! sarah. as soon as i know how to attach i will attach my example plannning - just want to see im on the right lines! thanks again.
