To reflect upon the positive and negative effects of planning
To reflect upon the positive and negative effects of planning.
Evidence and reflection
What would happen if you didn’t plan the curriculum in the long, medium or short-term?
What positive or negative effects might you notice in terms of:
- children’s learning
- the routines of the setting
- the learning environment and resources
- the roles and well-being of practitioners.
How can you work towards an effective system where the positive effects of spontaneous provision and interactions are retained? Are there times and contexts where planning should be minimal or where it should be highly structured?
Hold a staff meeting to review the planning processes in your setting.
