Task 3: Planned experiences

Apply the knowledge you have gained from the observations and developmental summary completed on ‘Lilu’ to:

a) Write up two (2) experience plans to support ‘Lilu’s’ development, you may choose to implement an experience or set up a learning centre based on the information collected about the child. Consider what you have included as your future planning ideas.

One (1) experience plan must be for the indoor environment.

One (1) experience must be for the outdoor environment.

One plan must aim

  • to promote children’s creative expression,
  • to provide an opportunity for you to share an example of creative expression in art, architecture, inventions, music or dance.
  • to provide an opportunity for you to teach children techniques when using materials and equipment

Both plans must include a creative transition to and from the experience or learning centre.

Please note for each of these two (2) experiences you will NOT be implementing them so you will NOT need to complete the ‘evaluation/reflection’ section or the ‘follow up ideas’ section of your Experience Plans, these have been ‘greyed out’ in the experience plan template below. All other sections must be completed.

The following experience plan proforma has been developed to use for this task. Please see Assessment tips for information on how to complete this Experience Plan successfully.
