Enjoy looking through my resources. Most of them are suitable for EYFS/ Year 1 level as that is what I am teaching right now. Some things will be suitable for older age groups that I have previously taught. You will find lots of phonics resources as I have had to teach it without following a scheme so have had to make a lot of things myself. There are also some packages of resources/ activities which cover lots of different areas of learning which I have used in EYFS.

Independent baking activity and pictorial recipe (EYFS, KS1)

(0)
A great resource for an independent baking activity used in Reception (though could be used with children of other ages). I modeled how to make the cakes to my class, then put them in small, mixed ability groups to make the buns/ cupcakes. I did not help them at all unless they were really stuck and came to ask for help (except with the oven!) They knew that they had to help each other instead. It was amazing how well they did! The children demonstrated fantastic mathematical language, teamwork, communication and problem solving skills. Some This pack includes: recipe slides which can be used on the board to demonstrate to the children what they need to do, then be printed to create a recipe book. Recipe is written as simply as possible (higher ability Reception children should be able to read it) and represented in pictures too. All measurements are in scoops or spoonfuls so the children can measure out themselves. Design a cupcake writing/ drawing/ labeling sheet Ingredients list writing task sheet. Teacher notes and planning (including scoop sizes etc. so you can resource the activity so the recipe works!) EYFS areas covered within this resource : PSED Communication and language (following instructions, communicating ideas e.g. how to crack an egg) Physical development Reading writing Shape, space and measure
