    Default I'm up till silly o'clock with planning on the brain!

    Hello all

    am about to hit the hay but was just wondering (after going through it all today in anticpation of my inspection...eek!!! )

    is this right...I've literally been only minding for a bit and have my inspection coming up

    I have in each child's learning journeys...

    - outlines of stages of development for each area of learning for the age of the child
    - dividers for all the 6 areas with obs put in the relevant sections
    - next steps for each area

    is that how we go on doing it...observing and then planning next steps

    I've done a "long term plan" for the year but not sure how I fit my obs into planning into the next weeks / months

    Do I do only individual plans for the forthcoming weeks / months or do I do group plans and then do individuals spun off from those

    sorry but I'm really confussed! (doesn't take much! )

    thanks everyone xxx

    What you have in place sounds great to me. Don't worry too much about where your obs fit etc. I often do spontaneous obs when i see a child so something - a "wow" moment.

    Take a breath and start enjoying the job - Oftsed will love what you have done.
    I'm not paranoid - the world IS out to get me!

    That sounds great!

    Yes you are right - observation leads to individual planning which leads to more observation.

    Good luck!
