Construction loved by early years today. One decided to write down " no people allowed " and tick in other children to the building site.

As the climate warms up to fully immerse us in our jungle topic, year 1 have been busy this week creating some lovely writing based around Lizzy Stewart’s There’s A Tiger In The Garden 🐅 🌿 ☀️ #ks1 #teachersofinstagram #teachershelpteachers #theresatigerinthegarden #lizzystewart #independent #continuousprovision #jungletopic #funinthesun #year1

Continuing their learning into their play 👍🏻 we’re learning to tell the time this week and the children are doing so well, and really enjoying it! #teacherlife #ks1 #tellingthetime #continuousprovision #earlyyears #teacher #teaching

There’s nothing quite like pond dipping for taddies in your school pond 🐸 The children are loving observing our fish tank of frog spawn and tadpoles! We also caught some snails and a newt!! Since then the children have been independently researching tadpoles to find out what they eat and how they grow through books in provision. The tank has also provided inspiration for art work and many deep discussions.
(Disclaimer: I’m aware there is too much in this tank, at the end of the day the tadpoles and other creatures were returned to the pond and we now just have frog spawn 🙂) #handsonlearning #scienceobservation #science #reallifelearning #ks1 #continuousprovision #yearone #teacher

It’s amazing what you can create with 10 spare minutes, an old pallet and some pots and pans. #music #earlymusic #eyfs #earlyyears #foundationstage #outsidelearning #continuousprovision

A busy first couple of days back after the the Easter break but the children have swung straight into our new Jungle topic like true explorers! 🌿🦁🐯🐒🐍🐅🐆🌿#jungle #jungletopic #crosscurricular #eyfs #ks1 #tufftray #tufftrayideas #roleplayarea #smallworldplay #continuousprovision #guidedteaching #writinginspiration #chalkpens #independent #jungletheme #jungleboogie #teachersofinstagram #teachershelpingteachers

Loose parts! I've had some ideas of where to source FREE and low cost resources for loose parts play- see link in bio👆but am really keen to add more hints and tips to the list: where do you go for inspiration 💡 and resources 👌?

Even after being told off to stay in the carpet area, the boys reasoned out that they need the “tunnel” (table on the right) for their model. Sometimes I challenge the children by giving them restrictions. I just want to hear them speak out their ideas, improvise their work and learn how to negotiate. #continuousprovision #blocksplay #eyfs #foundationstage #jobsiteplayground

This is from a beautiful school I visited in Leeds. They had a wonderful way of using lighting in their environment 💡 #learningenvironment #continuousprovision #earlyyears #lighting #primaryteacher

New role play for the new term... rainforest explorers! 🐆🦋🐒 #teacherlife #roleplay #continuousprovision #ks1 #year1 #earlyyears #teaching #rainforest #ebl #enquirybasedlearning #play #iteach

Next half term’s topic area! I can’t wait to hear the questions and conversations that this area will bring 🌿💀🐚 #yearone #continuousprovision #playbasedlearning #investigationdiscovery #keystageone #ks1 #teacher

From next week we start our new challenge system. We’ve had a challenge system for a few years now but felt it needed a refresh. We’re going with the rainbow challenge. ‘Challenge yourself to build a rainbow’ we are lucky that we have a large setting, however we know that not all children access all areas. We’re hoping that the rainbow challenge will help solve that somewhat and allow us to track the children better. We’re just starting with 2 challenges next week and will build up to the 6 over a couple of weeks. we’ll also start it in our nursery class next term. #eyfs #earlyyears #earlyyearseducation #foundationstage #continuousprovision @abcdoes

Just look at these colourful beauties...and that dreadful pit of wet mud that will be a bugger to turn into a flowerbed when we return from the holidays. Bless them, it was serving as the mud source for the mud kitchen but we had too many little ones practically diving waist height into it and bathing in the stuff, even with adult supervision. Cue many a parental whinge about washing their coats AGAIN. I always feel like saying, “well why in the world did you buy a flashy coat from *insert expensive brand* when you know that they’re only 4 or 5 and have a deep personal affinity for mud?”. God bless those parents who literally never bat an eyelid, even when their child comes home covered in glitter, cornflour, paint, mud and their lunch.

💐 Easter Craft 🐣 We love this way of exploring media in my setting - put a picture in a tray, blob in your desired colours of paint, add a few marbles and roll away! It makes fantastic space pictures if you use white/metallic paints and black card 🌌☺️ #continuousprovision #teachersofinstagram #art #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofig #earlyyears #eyfs #eytalking #eyfsideas #eyfsteacher #eyfsclassroom #earlyyearsideas #earlyyearsteacher #earlyyearseducation #markmaking #finemotor #understandingoftheworld #learningthroughplay #learningthroughplaying #art #exploringmedia #earlyyearsfoundationstage #paint

When you buy fishbowls made for cocktails but the most exciting thing going in them is pom poms and bottle tops 😂... I currently have no where to put these but my plan is to keep crafty things in them for the children to access. Wish I'd bought more.. story.of.my.life. #poundland #poundlandbargain #nqt #teacher #teachers #teachersfollowteachers #eyfs #eyfsteacher #continuousprovision #crafty

I went into school today and added a few new resources to our maths shelves. I've added a bit of colour to our maths provision, to compliment our whole school art focus next term. The top shelf is number based as we'll be doing more work on addition and subtraction, so these mathematical counting sticks are great for making number sentences. Our class are having real trouble with the "teen" numbers so I've added one writing and recognition activity (writing numbers in sand) and some Numicon with "teen" flash cards. The second shelf is shape space and measure, with a rainbow that comes apart. It is a poor mans Grimms rainbow, from a local supermarket. The natural wooden blocks are to see what they've learnt about 3D shape plus I'd like to encourage building with something other than Mobilo 🙄. On the bottom shelf I've placed a selection of stones, a sand timer and some handmade tens frames. We have math trays that the children have access to as well, but use these open shelves as a way to target our current maths theme and to help fill any gaps they may have. We'll spend the first few days getting to know the activities and will have an adult there until they become familiar with the resources. #maths #mathsprovision #mathshelves #continuousprovision #numbers #shapespaceandmeasure #countingsticks #numberrecognition #numicon #teennumbers #rainbow #woodenblocks #abacus #stones #tensframe #teachersofinstagram #earlyyears #earlymaths #earlyyearsteacher #eyfs #eyfsteacher #eyfsideas

For those of you asking, this is how my construction area currently looks. Much of it is the same as before, but I added an extra set of shelves a couple of weeks ago, so moved a few of the resources around. A mixture of blocks and recycled materials for open-ended building and engineering...

#worksheets - would love opinions on this! My current school does not support colouring or worksheets, but my children enjoy doing both, so long as they’re not actually being forced to do either. Forcing always seems to push them away! I generally steer clear of worksheets but my expensive subscription to Twinkl warrants a little flexibility. This activity looks so boring on the outside, but the dot-to-dot dinosaurs helped to teach the children about putting the dots in numeral order from 1-20 and they were so engaged, there were actual scuffles to get a T-Rex sheet. I also see the skills of fine motor control, numeral recognition, creativity (I saw lots of rainbow dinosaurs!), pencil grip and extended concentration to name but a few. I just ‘accidentally’ chose to put these out when I knew the headteacher was off site, #sneakyteacher...

My bargain car boot find last summer has found a new home in our kitchen role play corner outside... and ‘School Cat’ as she’s been named (she’s adopted us!) seems to like it too! I’m open to suggestions about what you’d display on those dresser shelves... #homecorner #outdoorlearning #roleplay #learningthroughplay #cat #schoolcat #earlyyears #eyfs #continuousprovision #teachersofinstragram #ideasplease #carbooty
