Default New EYFS 2012 planning

Hi there, I work in a private nursery with children aged 6 weeks - 4 years old. We are looking at the new EYFS and trying to get a few ideas with improving the planning and adapting it to the new EYFS. Can anyone here help us out and give us some ideas please.

We currently have significant obs, learning outcomes (we write these up from the EYFS) Area in room (where we write the specific activity), Enhanced provision and any obs we also write an evaluation on the back for each learning outcome.

Surely there is an easier, shorter, time saving way of doing the planning.

Thanks x

throw them out! you need to plan for each individual child and that can be easily done by the KP. it is completely irrelevant where they are when they're learning etc. observe significant events or things which capture them make a note and pan for tomorrow based on it. yo9u need very little paperwork just a tracking sheet of emerging etc etc based on the 17 goals easy peasy lemon squeezey. everything else is a waste

Thank you x

I think you need to be clear about how you are going to cover the earlyyears curriculum over time even for children who do not show a specific interest in all the areas. To say throw everything out is being rather simplistic. I doubt Ofsted would be impressed.

Nowadays ofsted want planning to be very much child innitiated. Of course as adults we still need to add our own ideas, so that we continue to enhance childrens understanding and imagination and give them new ideas. We do plan for all the 7 areas of learning but with a mixture of child and adult initiated activities. You need to get a good balance. We plan for the week ahead. Plans usually done on a thursday. That way we can see what interest the children have and incorporate them into the week ahead. Also they give us ideas. We do topics but loosely as for example we've just done the Chinese New Year which was fab, but a child brought in a map to show everyone some have been creating our own maps and using compasses. You need to get a good balance but plans should be fairly simple really. Two of the activities on the plans are observed with notes being taken on each child.
