Foundation Stage Planning

Recommended Posts

I am hoping someone can help me! I am a ks2 trained teacher who has been teaching year 1 for the past few years. This year I have a new head who wants me to continue the foundation stage with my year 1's as they haven't all achieved the ELGs. I have had no experience of planning in this way and would really appreciate some advice! My topic is Toys and I have found a fab topic web but am struggling with creating weekly plans form this. I know this is a silly questions but are learning intentions the same as the stepping stones and ELGs?

 

And could someone explain if I am supposed to link all my water/sand and play etc to my topic too?

 

Help!!

You don't need to link everything all of the time or the links get very tedious

 

This website is very good if you scroll down there are two links to planning and activities for the topic toys

Thanks so much for that - what a great website!

Do you have any suggestions for a easy to follow way of weekly planning?

Need as much advice as possible!

Hi and welcome from me too! xD As far as your question goes about learning intentions, I always state exactly what I want the children to learn from the activity, which doesn't always relate directly to a specific stepping stone or ELG, e.g. to develop scissor skills, to sort a collection of buttons according to size/colour, etc. - not sure that they are particularly good examples but you might get the gist?! And then from that I look at different stepping stones/ELGs that we might be able to observe and assess against whilst the children are taking part in the activity - and these might will obviously cover a range, depending on the children. Hope that's clear? :o
