This is a two week unit plan aimed at FS/Year 1 class. It has resources linked to the planning attached. I have also added art and DT ideas too.
This is a great resource that I have used for years. I use it to check that children are on the correct book band. These books are from reading schemes such as Bug Club and Collins Big Cat. They do have the old national curriculum levels on them but book bands have not changed since the change of curriculum so still relevant now. I then track my children on a book band tracker which I have attached to this bundle too.
Based on the known book “One is a snail Ten is a Crab” - children are introduced to animals with 3 legs, 7 legs, 13 legs, 20 legs etc and are given a series of challenges to extend from this idea in the book.
This bundle includes a presentation on effective transition which can be shared with staff or parents. As part of our transition programme we question the children on their interests and concerns about moving settings. I have included this in the bundle. There is also a whole setting transition planner to remind all parties about their role in supporting children in their transitions.
A starting point to help children understand making groups after working practically - can be adapted too.
Lots of ideas on how to support children with aspects of Phase 1 indoor and outdoors and rhymes too! I have also added an overview sheet to do an audit of opportunities for this area.
This bundle includes progression of skills to support children with counting and recognising patterns in numbers. I have also included a presentation on how to create provision for maths in the early years too.
I have created this intervention for KS1 classes for a group intervention. This is designed for children who have gaps in Phase 3 spelling skills. Look out for my Phase 5 version too! This is a whole terms intervention and I have seen amazing results from using these plans with small groups of children. I suggest doing a phase 3 spelling test and then picking the plans suited to the group to tailor the intervention.
Great powerpoint as a starter to a topic on winter or use for a Geography topic on seasonal changes/weather.
These assessments cover all areas of the spelling curriculum in Year 1. It also has a scoring system so you can compare progress from one term to the next and also identify the next steps in the teaching of spelling with your class.
A great termly resource that covers all areas of the spelling curriculum in year 2. It identifies strengths and areas to develop within your cohort and is also a good tool to show progress in this area.
Created a simple worksheet for children to map the story of Rosie’s Walk
