    Default Weekly Timetable

    how many of you have a weekly timetable?

    for things that don't change i.e toddler groups, library??

    is it worthwhile having one or not??

    I tried to set one when I first started but it soon fell by the wayside as I now just go with the flow. Wait and see what mood the kids are in, what the weathers like etc and take it from there.

    The only timescale we stick to is the school and nursery run every day

    I have one that goes in my Obs and Assess Book to show parents and Ofsted

    It just has 7.156 - 8.45 breakfast club
    8.45 school. run
    9.00 nursery run and roughly goes through the day

    I then show how this relates to EYFS on my obs form and I don't have to do anything else with it again

    I have one but I have put underneath it that it will change according to the needs of the children etc. This EYFS requires you to have short term, medium and long term planning doesn't it?!?

    Absolutely! Well short and long term anyway... not sure it mentions much about medium term.

    But it does not tell us how to do the planning... and well all do things in different ways

    Does anyone have one they wouldn't mind sharing? Im just thinking about time at home, how much detail to go into. Do you just put play as what you do each day will vary and will be covered on the detailed planning sheet?

    I have a one which says what groups we goto & on what days, but again its not always stuck to as it depends on how the children are.

    I have one but don't really stick too closely to it as I go with what the children want/need a lot of the time.
