Man Alive! I don't know where today went – didn't think I could possibly have much left to do and then got to 5.30pm and still had loads to do!
Children and parents in tomorrow, am nervous, but keen just to get going with my little cherubs.
Had a team meeting tonight and piloted the planning formats. Team were really keen to use the child initiated planner up to Year Two. Have done that before in other settings – just pleased they wanted to do it here. Am going to rewrite the format so that it can include FS and National Curriculum points/levels.
Bought a sofa today to enhance my dedicated talk area. I am going to create a 'talk sofa' for planned and incidental talk work – more of that when it is finished!
Gone as far as I want to with my mark making area. Have got resources on there for lots of gross motor work as well as some fine motor stuff, selection of papers, envelopes of different sizes etc. Have put some small peg activities, threading activities as these are all an important pre-curser to mark making/writing.
Have backed all of my boards in cream with a black border apart from workshop, which is backed in the Liverpool Echo!
Small World is slightly better but still needs some work…
Hope they like it and more importantly learn from it!
I will of course let you know…
