EYLF Programming Documentations - Early Years Curriculum Planning
The Early Years Learning Framework describes the curriculum as “all the interactions, experiences, activities, routines and events, planned and unplanned, that occur in an environment designed to foster children’s learning and development”. The Childcare Curriculum Plan is a planned sequence of activities and experiences, which are intended to achieve an outcome. This means, all the activities / experiences that the children engage in on a daily basis, have an aim / objective and are planned to be available for the group of children on that specific day. What is a Curriculum Plan The curriculum plan is a document that lists all the experiences, events and activities that are available for the children throughout the course of the day. As part of implementing a curriculum plan, documentation (daily diary, learning stories and observations) becomes a resource tool that is used to reflect on and extend upon the children’s learning and development.

Observation, Assessment and Planning The EYFS Profile summarises and describes children’s attainment at the end of the EYFS.

Objective-led Planning Objective-led planning has to be the most effective way of taking teaching into children’s play that I have ever used. With objective-led planning you would still group the children by ability based on assessment. Rather than having 'red group', 'blue group' etc for Mathematics or Communication and Language etc. It allows you to group your children by their specific need in each area of learning. So, children who need more support in talk development and less in fine motor can get just that, rather than being in one ability group for both. Once you have decided on your teaching focus you group your children in relation to their attainment within that area.

Assessment informing learning - Education Review Office How well does assessment information inform learning in the service?Good quality assessment practice contributes to positive outcomes for children. Assessment helps educators to provide learning opportunities that enrich children’s experiences, learning, and abilities.

Formative and Summative Assessment Assessment is the use of a variety of procedures to collect information about learning and instruction. Formative and summative assessment represent two classifications of assessment, each with a distinct purpose. Formative assessment is commonly referred to as assessment for learning, in which the focus is on monitoring student response to and progress with instruction. Formative assessment provides immediate feedback to both the teacher and student regarding the learning process. Summative assessment is commonly referred to as assessment of learning, in which the focus is on determining what the student has learned at the end of a unit of instruction or at the end of a grade level (e.g., through grade-level, standardized assessments).
