Have felt compelled to speak out after reading another post. Sorry Glitzygirl81, not your fault at all (that's why I didn't want to put this on your thread!) Does anyone else feel the need to question how an EYFS setting can possible plan that their topic after half term is going to be the Circus?! Am (maybe naively) assuming they have a new intake of children in September, what about child initiated planning and goining from their interests? How many children nowadays go to the circus or even know what one is? Don't get me wrong, part of me would love to be able to plan out the year with topics, one of the hardest things about teaching in Foundation Stage is having to 'wait and see' what you're going to be learning about each year but that's the nature of our job!! Rant over, feel better now!
