how many focused/guided sessions/activities in a week please

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by busnae, Jan 15, 2012.

  1. Hi I remember reading a thread about what people do for guided/focus groups in a week in terms of numbers. I think I try and get too many done over a week so sometimes expecting myself to do a CLL, phonics and maths in a morning and then getting anxious because I can't get all this done and the outdoor time that they love, need and want so much.

    I try and do phonics 4 times a week (2 groups)

    I have been doing a daily counting session with the whole class

    A CLL introduction to a new book on a Monday

    But feel like I would benefit from hearing what other people do - I only work mornings.

    Many thanks

    Bear in mind that you can do focus-group activities outdoors.

    What does the pm teacher do?
     
  4. Once a week is going to do maths - so i can do more kuw 'topic' focus
    leap into life, they do an afternoon of forest schools, swimming,

    I want to develop more maths outdoors in the morning - we have a lovely area to develop but's it not off the classroom so somewhere an adult has to go - it's in the early stages at the moment but is a lovely natural area - with a lovely round willow hut - quite a substantial roof on it, a wooden bench with a back, 2 raised beds for planting and a further raised bed for digging.

    We also use the playground and there is a small enclosed, covered area just outside the classroom
