Existing Themes and Activities on the system

Medium Term Planning is developed on a main focus or theme which shows the objectives in all seven Areas of Learning of the EYFS. This main theme will usually last between 4 and 6 weeks but depends on the children's interests. There may also be more emphasis on a particular Development Area, so it is important to observe the children and pick up their interests.

There are currently 50+ Medium Term themes on the system linked to over 750 activities, these activities have all already been linked to Early Years Outcomes, this will save you hours of work, not only will you not have to think up your own activities for the children but you won't have to scroll through the EYFS trying to link them to the correct Early Years Outcomes.

The current themes on the system are as follows:

There are no limits on the number of plans that can be created on the system.

Each activity within a plan can be linked to multiple Early Years Outcomes, this information is automatically displayed when creating a Short Term plan so that you do not have to re-enter the information.

Quickly view, edit, copy and delete the Medium Term Plans on the system.

When creating Medium Term Plans we add a title for the Plan and then add activities linked to Early Years Outcomes, these are brainstorming areas which will be used when you create a Short Term Plan.

Short Term Planning

Short Term / Weekly Plans are created by taking activities directly from the Medium Term Plans on the system and involve setting out what is to be included on a day to day basis, one week at a time within the broad framework outlined in the Medium Term Plan, this enables much more focus on what specific needs the children have and how these will be met.

Short Term Plans are created by selecting activities directly from one or more specific Medium Term Plans.

You can use the keyword(s) search tool within the Short Term / Weekly planning to search through the hundreds of activities already on the system and assign the activity to any day of the week.

The Area of Learning and Early Years Outcomes each activity was linked to within the Medium Term Plan is automatically added to your Short Term Plan.

Short Term Plans are created for each room on the system, one week at a time.

Completed plans can be reused and reassigned with new dates.

Quickly view, edit, copy and delete all the Short Term Plans on the system.

Each activity within your Short Term / Weekly plan can be linked to multiple Early Years Outcomes within the 2021 EYFS

Assign Next Steps to Short Term / Weekly Planning

When creating or adding activities into your Short Term / Weekly plans you can link the children's next steps into these activities so that you can work on the next steps with the children whilst carrying out the group activities, you can add any number of next steps into your planning for multiple children. If a child has next steps linked to the same Early Years Outcomes as the activity within the planning the system will recommend linking these next steps into your planning.
