I know I am probably been very dim here, but I am just bemused as to how to begin my planning. I'm expected to provide med term plans and I used to use the early learning goals as my objectives, which meant that I didn't have to be too specific ref the activities until I got onto the week ahead. This worked very well as I could ensure that I could fit activities into my short term planning which were relevant to the children and still met the objectives on my med term plans. I am now totally confused as to what objectives I should be using, the early learning goals are too advanced to be looking at just yet, and I have been told they are only to be used as summative assessment anyway, so I have started to use the Development Matters statements as my initial objectives beginning with the 30-50 month statements. I am a fairly experienced Reception Teacher. I also want to get it right as I think my school will be getting a visit from OFSTED this term! What objectives are other Reception Teachers using for their medium term plans please?
