As an NQT starting in January, this has helped a great deal alongside the planning as I have never used the NLS archive to plan and it's been taking some getting used to. Thanks for saving me a lot of stress!
I have searched everywhere for a booklet just on transition activities from Year R to Year 1. I found lots for KS2 and Year 1 to Year 2. I therefore gave up and created one of my own. A thread is also available. Please keep updating it. I will keep updating the booklet periodically so that we have a book full of wonderful activities.
If you would like to add one of your own please email it to me and I will add it and update the booklet ASAP.
Here is a well prepared power point about astronauts. As an activity, I got the students to draw them as a space person in the middle of their books. On one side they were to write down all the facts they learned about astronauts and the other side was about how they would live life as an astronaut using the supporting questions at the end of the PP.
