Here is the progression plan of the year I have used to map out what my provision areas will look like. It is completely subject to change and I will add things or remove things according to the children’s needs and interests.
Here are some challenges I use in different areas in continuous provision.
DO NOT add them all at once and expect magic to happen. I model using these myself whether it is during whole class inputs or playing in the provision with the children. It is only then that the expectation is set high enough for the children to complete them in their best way.
You will see that they are quite open ended. I tend to use these as prompts for the children and discussion points. I let the children fill them in and use them in their own style.
This document includes the areas of provision that I believe are important in a year 1 classroom, their links to the national curriculum, how you can resource the different areas and challenges or enhancement suggestions.
I have also included a brief explanation of why play is important for all children, even when they leave EYFS.
These activities were put out during continuous provision in EYFS and year one. The numberlines were used in a variety of activities and were made specifically for children who lacked interest in maths. The dinosaurs were printed, laminated and put out with wooden pegs to act as the spikes. The other resources were laminated and cut up to be used.
This would be used to stick all of the observations from a focus child in the week. You can write the next steps and keep track of the elements of the provision that the child has used throughout the week.
I adapted this from Anna Ephgrave’s document in her book Year One in Action.
Print and laminate these song cards individually and place them next to relevant enhancements, which could include puppets, small world scenes or loose parts. They are visual so the children can use them to remember the song with the sing themselves, after introducing them to the whole class.
I used these pictures to encourage specific, reluctant children to write during children initiated time or when they first came into school. The ‘random’ pictures are to spark conversation and also include images that are phonetically spelt. Lots of other amazing activities came from these too including a superhero writing cave, a race using scalectrix and lovely paintings of magical lands!
