A planning grid to support teachers in creating a St Andrews Day/Scotland themed Talking Tub. A Talking Tub is a collection of materials that are designed to stimulate talking and thinking to support responsive child led planning. This consultation can then be recorded in a Talking and Thinking Floorbook™. This approach can be used in early years and primary settings and can be easily differentiated. Talking Tubs should be tailored to suit your individual setting and individual interests of the children so we have intentionally left these as editable documents
The planning grid identifies the lines of enquiry that lie behind the experiences, ideas for 3D and 2D objects and photos and the big questions or possible lines of development that may come out of the discussion.
