Number Puzzles - Spring

(0)
A selection of 10 different high quality photographs representing the season of Spring. We laminate these, cut them up and challenge children to complete the puzzles as an independent activity. It’s a great way of assessing number recognition and ordering and sequencing numerals to 10, with use of maths for a purpose.

Development Matters Assessment Tool (EYFS)

(0)
I got tired of rifling through Development Matters every time I needed to assess children! I created this Excel spreadsheet that features all 17 areas of learning from the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. You can click on an age band to view that age band’s characteristics immediately - it has saved us so much time during assessment periods. All age bands, from birth-11 months, through to Early Learning Goal and Exceeding statements are included.
Space Assembly Script - EYFS/KS1
EYFSResourcesEYFSResources

Space Assembly Script - EYFS/KS1

(0)
An editable script for a space-themed assembly for younger pupils. Features two songs for children to sing and 30 separate speaking parts (though these are easily combined should you have children who do not wish to speak). The basic premise of the assembly is that two children in the class want to go on holiday to space and so listen to some facts about the eight planets to help make their decision. They don’t want to stay on planet Earth because it’s too messy! In the end they realise that the other planets would not be great holiday destinations because they’re too hot/too cold/too rocky/too smelly! They choose to stay on planet Earth but realise that they have to help to look after it to keep it a nice place to live. We had great success with this assembly in Reception last year - the children (and parents) loved it - and it’s easily edited to make it work for other classes.

Emotions and Facial Expressions - Build a face!

(0)
A selection of photographs featuring eyes and mouths in different expressions (happy, angry, scared, sad etc.), and a full page face template for sticking them on. We have found this really useful for teaching children about emotions and when encouraging them to speak about how they are feeling. They can either be used independently as a cutting/sticking activity for children, or laminated and provided within continuous provision to encourage children to show you how they are feeling when they are struggling to articulate it.
