    Default Medium Term Planning ... Is this right?


    Can you have a look at my medium term plan for November, which is Transport. Is this enough?
    \for my short term plans I would then go into detail for some of the activity plans and also an individual plan for each child such as ... for craft collage, if a child loves tractors, we could create a tractor collage ... right???

    Not sure how to load up my file but this is it in basic form (I have it in a spidergram)

    Communication, Language and Literacy (CLL)

    Discussions on how we travel
    Borrow transport themed books from the library
    Discussions about our carbon foot print.

    Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy (PSRN)

    Counting coloured cars on a journey
    Explore different sized vehicles
    Exploring shapes of vehicles

    Creative Development (CD)

    Creating a collage of different types of transport
    Use small world vehicles to create marks using paint
    Making 3D models, cars, boats etc

    Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)

    Safety in transit
    Green Cross Code
    Discovering our carbon footprint and how to reduce it

    Physical Development (PD)

    Playing on the ride on cars and bikes
    Using role play to create a journey
    Going for a walk to observe vehicles on the road

    Knowledge and Understanding of the World (KUW)

    Explore the different types of transport from around the world
    Travelling on a bus
    How vehicles work

    Thanks for the help. x

    Looks good to me. I don't do medium term planning at the mo but my inspector said I needed to do the same thing that you have done for over a week as I only do daily and find out the festivals etc. I will probably do something similar but hopefully this message will now move up and someone more knowledgable will reply.

    That looks great!

    Leave space for the children to follow their interests as well... so if you start with the green cross code and road safety they might suggest making stop / go boards or playing stopping games in the garden... you can write that in afterwards and it will be helpful for next year.

    Another thing Ofsted like to see is why you are following that particular theme. Maybe a child has a new car he's brought from home or there are roadworks on a road near you and that has sparked an interest
