    Default Pre reg booklet.

    Hi all,

    I'm awaiting the call to say ofsted will be coming to do my pre reg visit. Been told it should be within the next 4 weeks (argh!).

    So I filled out my pre reg booklet that I downloaded and was a bit stuck with the first question.

    Does anyone have any pointers? Do the activities have to be the same for the young child and the 4 year old? Do you have to do one for each seven areas??

    Any advice would be great as I've finished the rest of the booklet :-)

    Tia.

    I vaguely know the question but the latest wording so someone else might be more exact...but what they are looking for is to see if you can differentiate and plan activities that are suitable for the different ages, obviously they can not do exactly the same activity so how would you make changes for a little one and for an older one. All seven areas is wise as they could ask you about any of the 7 areas.

    I did an activity for each of the 7 areas that both a young one and 4 year old could do, with adaptations so both would be involved. A lot of the areas I broke down into the subheadings and did an activity for each.
    For example for physical development I had a different activity for gross motor skills, fine motor skills, and health and wellbeing. Gross motor skills I said put foam mats in the garden and jump between them like frogs, put numbers or letters on for older ones and ask them to go to different numbers etc, hopping, skipping, jumping etc, then could pretend to be a snake/lion/cat etc etc, for little one help them move from mat to mat, either carrying or jumping them along etc. then for fine motor skills I said make lacing cards, photos of fun things they're interested in, hole punch around edges and thread shoe lace through, young ones help thread, or find big objects around the house that could be threaded, 4 year old let them do the threading, health and wellbeing I think I said make a hand washing poster together by drawing around our hands, find a song and write that up on poster then all go and stick it next to the sink and everyone wash their hands while singing the song.
    I did this for all of them, I don't know if it was more than expected as the inspector just wrote it all down on the computer and didn't give much feedback just nodded and seemed to agree!
    Sure others with more experience of what ofsted want will be along with more advice!
