The planning formats I use I got from here: http://eyfs.durhamlea.org.uk/observationplanningassessmnet/14799 it has got some helpful tips on how to ue them. I do a weekly Maths and a weekly Literacy plan usually linked in with other curricular areas in addition to a weekly phonics plan. they are very simple with broard objectives at the top and activities for each day together with who will do which activity ( based on interests and or abilities). More often than not i fill most of it in on a daily basis. I also do separate focus activity plans if I wantTA to do an activity - just so I can put more detail in. I do sometimes wonder why I do them though!
