We are exploring creating a FS unit. Currently have 1 reception and 1 N class. What are your experiences? I can imagine there are lots of benefits, but am also panicking about possible chaos! Also how do you manage keeping track of all the children in terms of observations if they are spread out in different rooms? I find it hard enough keeping 30 profiles up to date, but if 26 N children were mingled in, think it would be even harder. Our children are very needy and come in at very low levels. At the moment they thrive on a calm N environment but im not sure it would be this way if we changed. Also for R, how do you organise adult led activities eg guided reading and writing with much younger children in the same settling? Will try to be open minded though!
