These plans are ones I used in 2010. The format may not suit you, the number of days given may differ, the resources may not match those you have. But there may still be ideas you find useful.
My phonics planning seems to be quite popular so I thought there may be some of you who would be interested to see these PSRN plans. I'm happy to talk to anyone about planning via messages if you want to clarify some rubbish I've written somewhere!!
This is a good way of letting parents contribute towards their child's EYFS profile. It tells us that children's learning is becoming embedded and helps parents to recognise the progress their child is making.
This can then be added to children&'s learning journals.
I've made this because it wasn't there for me to copy!! I would be really interested to have people add other ideas to the list as I&'m sure it&';s not exhaustive. Feel free to PM me. I hope it helps you as much as I'm hoping it helps me! Please comment.

NUMERICAL REASONING SPEAKING FRAMES
These speaking frames support the development and reinforcement of learners' numeracy skills and mathematical language in Nursery. Mathematical talk is essential in developing learner's understanding of mathematics. If learners are supported to articulate the process, they will clarify their thinking.
The speaking frames have been aligned to the Curriculum for Wales: revised Areas of Learning for the Foundation Phase. The sentence starters for each year group are appropriate to the end of year outcomes and are an effective vehicle for developing numerical reasoning.
THE RESOURCE PACK INCLUDES:
a guide to using the numerical reasoning speaking frames
a numerical reasoning speaking frame mat for learners
large speech bubbles of each sentence starter to support introduction of the speaking frames
PLEASE NOTE: The mat and speech bubble shown in the preview are general samples to show style. Each mat is tailored to specific year groups and may not match the mat shown.
