Independent baking activity and pictorial recipe (EYFS, KS1) reading maths communication PSED

(0)
A great resource for an independent baking activity used in Reception (though could be used with children of other ages). I modeled how to make the cakes to my class, then put them in small, mixed ability groups to make the buns/ cupcakes. I did not help them at all unless they were really stuck and came to ask for help (except with the oven!) They knew that they had to help each other instead. It was amazing how well they did! The children demonstrated fantastic mathematical language, teamwork, communication and problem solving skills. Some This pack includes: recipe slides which can be used on the board to demonstrate to the children what they need to do, then be printed to create a recipe book. Recipe is written as simply as possible (higher ability Reception children should be able to read it) and represented in pictures too. All measurements are in scoops or spoonfuls so the children can measure out themselves. Design a cupcake writing/ drawing/ labeling sheet Ingredients list writing task sheet. Teacher notes and planning (including scoop sizes etc. so you can resource the activity so the recipe works!) EYFS areas covered within this resource : PSED Communication and language (following instructions, communicating ideas e.g. how to crack an egg) Physical development Reading writing Shape, space and measure

'igh' phase 3 phonics lesson teaching presentation and writing reading activities remote learning

(0)
A presentation introducing ‘igh’ (Phase 3). This can be used for whole group teaching. This includes starter recap activity where children read Tricky Words to gain stars. It then introduces ‘igh’ as a phoneme and grapheme, through its use in single words, then within sentences with lots of reading opportunities for the children. There are then 2 activities for the children to complete: a naughts and crosses reading game which can be done as a whole group or in pairs, then a writing activity with self assessment opportunity. I used with Reception but could be used with any age group learning or recapping the ‘igh’ sound in phonics. Could easily be used for remote learning too.

A fun Power Point to introduce the Phase 3 Tricky Word ‘you’ with reading opportunities within it and a writing task to print and complete at the end.
