My MTP so far this year!
I find this week-by-week approach, divided into the 6 areas of learning and development a really helpful resource. It makes it easier to think ahead and plan activities linked to the topic whilst still meeting our long term objectives and remaining flexible.
Topics we have covered so far are: Ourselves, Farmer Duck, The Gruffalo, The Jolly Christmas Postman, Space, Dinosaurs and Spring.
A very simple ppt to provide introduction to symbols, leading to explanation of a few Christian symbols. (For those who are not familiar with children's cartoons, the green and black circle is a symbol for ben 10!)
Cut out cards, fold in half and play loop game in one of two ways, either starting with number side up, ('who has 4 tens and 2 units? '
&'I have 42. Who has 2 tens and one unit?&'; etc)
Or start with pictures up ('who has 64? &' I have six tens and 4 units.&'; etc).
