Painting in Continuous Provision (Labels)

(0)
I work in a Nursery School where there is a childcare provision. We therefore have a ‘baby room’ and a ‘toddler room’ in addition to the Nursery School classroom. In each room there are paints in pots and easels. What new skill are they learning with the resources provided? Admittedly their artwork should improve as they develop but I wanted to add more thought to the skills that I wanted them to learn through their play e.g. mixing, quantity, responsibility, cause and effect. I have now set up a self dispensing paint provision using a palette rather than paint pots. It means that they have the ability to mix paint to create new colours. Also a range of painting materials have been provided, not just the typical thick paint brush. I printed the labels onto A4 self adhesive sheets and cut them to size. To stop the paint from drying out and clogging the pump I have added water and a drop of dishwasher detergent. If they do clog, soak the pump in warm water and leave overnight. The bottles themselves came from Poundstretcher and originally had hand soap in them. Skills based learning, adding challenge to the painting provision #EYFS #learningthroughplay #learningthroughart #ContinuousProvision

Create a Simple Digital Microscope

(0)
Biologists use microscopes to see things that they can't see clearly with the naked eye. Microscopes are a fairly expensive piece of equipment and generally not very portable. In this practical you will convert smart phone/tablet to create a simple, portable digital microscope using cheap, easily accessible components. Then use it to explore and make observations about the microscopic details of everyday things. Keywords: science, microscopes, DIY, simple, fun activity, biology, STEM, STEM activity, STEM project, Science Club, STEM club.

Mini Plenary Cards (Blue Coloured Back)

Mini plenaries are a type of formative assessment and are a great way to review progress of learning during a lesson. It also allows pupils opportunities for self reflection. "Teachers have also begun to be more flexible in introducing effective ‘mini plenaries’ at critical points in a lesson to review progress, clarify misunderstandings and move the work forward (OFSTED Dec. 2003)". Just ask a pupil to select a card and in so doing will feel like they are taking responsibility for their own learning. Just print out 9 copies of page 1 of the PDF and return to the printer for double sided printing and then print out pages 2-10. It is best to print out the cards on thick paper/thin card. I have laminated my set for durability. There are five sets available from my TES shop, the only difference is the back design, the actually mini plenary suggestions are the same. This is the blue backed design. Keywords: formative assessment, mini plenaries, plenary, assessment.

Coins for early maths skills development. Just print out and stick the appropriate ‘head to tail’ and laminate. It may not feel like the real thing but they look the same albeit on a bigger scale.
Memory/Snap Game Using Shape and Colour

Memory/Snap Game Using Shape and Colour

(0)
I work as an SEN assistant and am employed to work one-to-one with a three year old child who has global developmental delay. Whilst she has very limited verbal communication, I have discovered that she is great at playing memory and enjoys playing the game. We have been focusing more recently on colour and shape so I have created this memory game to specifically support her learning. The game consists of 32 colour cards. The shapes are square, circle, triangle and star printed in pairs in each of four colours: red, blue, yellow and green. I do not play the game using all 32 cards and currently use either all of one particular shape in all of the colour variations or one of each shape in different colours. She now recognises the four different shapes. But you can adapt the game to play in any way which you see fit. Because the game uses pairs of cards it can be played either as memory or snap. I will shortly be publishing a black and white version of this game to support those children who work better using this colour scheme. Keywords: SEN, memory, shapes, colour, game, learning through play, snap, EYFS, Curriculum for Excellence, numeracy,

Repair broken hearts by matching the number on each half. Written in two different fonts, it helps children to recognise and read numbers when written in different ways. Can be printed on a different colour for each page for differentiation, print on the same colour paper for greater challenge.

This year we are unable to make the traditional take home, end of year gifts to share with families, as the majority of my nursery class is at home. I still wanted them to have something special to celebrate the end of the academic year. So, I have created a template for an activity for them to do at home with support from parents/guardians. We have heard so much about curves during the ongoing pandemic that I thought it would be nice to take control of one for ourselves! There are two versions, one is to be completed using a pencil and ruler, and there is a second version which is to be completed using a needle and thread. We sent this version home to all of the children with a plastic needle and thread. Linked to the EYFS it is also a learning activity, helping to develop those all important numeracy skills and fine motor skills.
Ladybirds of Unusual Size

Ladybirds of Unusual Size

Help develop understanding of size and amount by using these proportionally sized ladybirds. The more spots (1-10) they have, the bigger they are. Idea: Hide around the room to be discovered. Once found, the children can be encourage to line them up in size order and/or using the number of spots. Print our a couple of sets and have a race, who can organise them the quickest. Is it quicker to do it by size or by counting the spots?
Number bonds of proportional size (1-10)

Number bonds of proportional size (1-10)

(0)
An easy resource to learn and play with to develop early numeracy skills. Numbers whose height is proportional to their value. For example, two ‘fives’ are the height of one ‘ten’. Can be used to develop understanding of size and amount as well as being a tool to develop understanding of number bonds. The figures also have dots on which are equivalent to their value, so support development of understanding of value and amount. Also helps to develop the skill of subitising. How to use: Print out (on plain or coloured paper/card) Cut around the rectangular shape Use like this - Can be used to create matching patterns, can be coloured in or drawn on. Alternatively laminate for longevity. When laminated can also be used as a wipe clean writing tool. Create challenges eg Can you choose numbers which when added together are the same height as the number 10?
