Spring into a new season with these themed activity ideas for early years and primary pupils

It may still be cold and wet, but the evenings are finally getting longer and there are touches of spring in the air. Celebrate the arrival of the season of birth, rejuvenation and regrowth with these refreshing lesson ideas and activities.

EYFS resources

These visual springtime songs based on well-known tunes are an ideal starting point for this seasonal topic. For a longer lesson, get younger learners to identify spring flowers using the clues in this floral-themed presentation, before encouraging them to have a go at making their own.

Pupils can go on to practise matching and counting with these colourful dominoes. Alternatively, encourage them to develop their fine motor skills with this pack of spring worksheets, which focuses on pencil control.

Springing into Spring Pencil Control for EYFS/KS1

Using a pencil is not an easy task for little fingers!
It takes lots of time and energy! This little 20 page booklet is a good introduction for those children in the early years that are ready for that next step-writing! Lines are differentiated in thickness and length, the pages cover left to right writing, up and down and right to left. It teaches curves and other types of formation.
Little ones will love this!

Spring - Non-Chronological Report Writing- Models / Mind Map Planning / Active Tasks / Assessment

A comprehensive pack of resources - non-chronological report writing- Spring
These resources include :
1) Presentation A that introduces the general features of report writing in a colourful, child friendly format that clearly leads the learners through the signposts of the genre.
2) Presentation B that presents non-chronological report writing in clear and concise steps. It provides factual sentences and paragraphing under clear sub-headings. It is intended to provide an organised pro forma for writers and could be used over a few sessions before independent writing.
3) Presentation C that reminds learners of the importance of revising writing with an online link that illustrates redrafting.
I have also provided differentiated checklists - peer and self editing for assessment.
The model report on 'Spring' allows learners to read, discuss, analyse, highlight and 'pull apart' - active learning.
A mind map for the planning stage to support learners ( can be easily edited to provide more support).
This detailed pack of resources will support learners thoroughly from the initial lesson on the structure of a report through the analysis of models, building up vital words and phrases within a mind map format and finally to a finished piece that can be assessed /celebrated.
Extension Tasks include adding in :
a glossary
a True or False statement
a 'Do you know?' question
I have uploaded several jpg files so teachers can peruse the resources more comprehensively.
I would be delighted if you would provide feedback.
Many thanks for free use clip art provided by
