any body please?
I have uploaded my template for the weekly structure of our nursery and the roles played by the adults. You'll find it in resources within the next hour under something like 'structure and roles in nursery'. It has worked for us this year (we are 39 place full time nursery class)
All our children do some full and some part time. Our planning is based on our children's interests and we plan and evaluate on a daily basis. Each week we have a different group of children we focus on. Our children come in and doors to outside open about 20 mins later. Our children free flow. We have one adult who will do a focus activity but if children are not that interested they will move somewhere else. Other two staff are flexible we dont plan who goes out; we might plan in an observation for one member of staff. Children continue playing until story time at end of the session. Afternoon session runs the same way. We dont interrupt our children's play with lots of carpet sessions. As you can see our structure is very loose but we really feel this works best for children's learning. We have the luxury of being a nursery school and we do not have the pressures nursery classes are under. However we achieved outstanding in our ofsted and our children go on to perform well above national average so it must work! However we found with Ofsted we really had to fight for how we work and prove how well our children learn and develop. Good luck!
It's in early years, PSED.
