Taking responsibility for meeting the QTS Standards: the professional I need to think through all I will need to do to be successful. The serial days will be important time for understanding current classroom routines and for understanding the levels children are working at. The serial day guidance in the SE3 Handbook gives an outline for how to carry out this process.
Failing to recognise the need to be pro-active and the importance of the serial days and the Easter break for preparation. I will get around to reading the SE3 Handbook at some point. It will be enough for me simply to tick off all the tasks set out in the handbook. I need a good break at Easter, I’ll catch up before the block starts.

In line with the ‘setting out’ of Foundation Stage classrooms in provision areas, you are expected to complete a continuous provision area plan for each existing area within your classroom. You are expected to further enhance these areas of provision, in accordance with your observations of children’s interests, fascinations and learning needs throughout the block placement. This may include removing or adding objects and materials to existing provision and/ or setting up further focus areas.’ SE3 Handbook
Differences KS1 and KS2: Prepare medium term plans and weekly plans for Literacy and Numeracy for first week N.B. Some Y1 classes will have provision areas. In this case use the FS provision area plan to identify the resources available.
