    Yes, did all mine yesterday along with my long term planning. Just keeping it simple - New Year, Chinese New Year, Winter etc. We have lots of childminder drop ins and toddler groups we attend too so they'll cover a lot.

    I use a "spider's web" (sorry that's not the right name) and just put a couple of activities under each area of learning. Is that what you meant?

    Yes - that's how I record my theme planning.

    Don't do medium term planning. Long term planning is just a month by month list of what I intend to do including themes, festivals, special events etc.

    I've only just started getting this down on paper was all in my head before but I think now Ofsted will want to see something written down. I'm keeping it very simple

    Here's another way to set things out if you're no good at whizzy boxes and things...
