eyLog has an integrated, easy to use Planning Sheet available on the tablet app meaning planning can be completed from within the room/group. Anything you have entered in the Next Steps section of your published observations will have been automatically copied into the Planning Sheet for the week following the observation date. You can also manually update the Planning Sheet at any time if required.

To view the Planning Sheet, click on ‘Planning Sheet’.

This will load the Planning Sheet. By default, the week selected will be the current week, click on the date and use the drop-down calendar to choose to see a different weeks planning sheet. You can also change the group/room by clicking on ‘Key Children’ in the top left corner and choosing from the available options.

Once you click ‘View’, the relevant Planning Sheet will load including any Next Steps from the children’s published observations in the ‘Planned Area and Activity’ column. To enter text manually, click ‘Edit’ at the bottom of the required section.

After you have written your planned activities or notes, click ‘Save’ to update.

The ‘Common Learning Intentions/Activities’ at the top and the ‘Additional Notes’ section at the bottom are applicable to the entire group/room’s planning. For example, if you have a theme at the nursery each week, this can be entered in these common areas so that staff know to plan their activities accordingly.

Note: If you still wish to have a paper copy displayed on the nursery wall, the Planning Sheet can be downloaded from the Manager Dashboard and printed accordingly.
