Listen to stories about different homes for people and creatures and decide where they would like to live, Home by Alex T Smith, The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse by Helen Ward, and Diary of a Wombat by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley. Children write their own version of The Town and Country Mouse and use The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch by Ronda and David Armitage to plan best lunches. Keep diaries, make lighthouses and stormy music.
Here is a whole term (13 weeks' worth) of planning for a topic entitled 'Out of the Blue'. This topic as focused on life under the sea including texts such as Hooray for Fish by Lucy Cousins, Commotion in the Ocean by Giles Andreae and The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch by Ronda and David Armitage. The 27 files in this download include:
- A Topic Web outlining curriculum objectives
- English weekly plans
- Maths weekly plans
- Medium-term plans
Please note that the first 7 weeks of planning for Maths and English involve continuous provision. We established a set of 'busy learning jobs' in Maths and English for the first half term so that the children could settle into Year 1. This worked brilliantly! Enjoy!

This is my account of what happened when we moved to London and my son (then aged 9) suffered some bullying. (He is now 31 and a professional actor. You may have seen him in the photos and video referred to on Siddhartha becomes the Buddha.)
I wrote this years ago and found it when doing a computer search for Krishna - in relation to my recent Hinduism Day. I think it could encourage some good discussion on many aspects of RE, PSHE and Citizenship.
I have now also uploaded the 'parent' file - Sunlight and Shadow parts 2 and 3
I found this document after a long search on the internet. It dates back to early 2000 and has the complete breakdown of topics, learning objectives, outcomes, possible activities and teaching notes.
