How are people managing to do this in Reception classes? Basically, we don't have direct access to outdoors so I'm thinking of splitting my class in half (roughly grouped by ability) so half can work indoors with an adult for 30 minutes, and the other half outdoors with another adult, each morning, then swap. This would then be repeated in the afternoon. Depending on what the intended outcomes are, I think perhaps one of us could be leading directed learning, and the other making observations and supporting children's self-initiated play, either indoors or outdoors. However, I won't get to work with every child in an hour, and don't necessarily want the same directed activity to continue all day. If we are to achieve a balance of AD and CI each day, would it be too prescriptive to have AD activities in the mornings (both indoors and outdoors) and CI in the afternoons? We can't change our provision for the afternoons as we share the space with part-time FS1. Also, unfortunately, I'm sorry to say my TA is not a confident person, and nor do I have utmost confidence in her ability to challenge and extend the children. I don't want to end up always asking her to support CI learning though! Argh! Our Profile data shows that SSM, W, PD (fine motor) and ED are our lowest scoring areas, so I feel I should be doing the majority of 'teaching' in these areas. Any ideas and feedback welcome, please!
