Hello everyone. :D

I hope that your all ok, this is my first post ever, i only found this site last week, and only just managed to get the time to post. :o

 

Well i am doing a six week curriculm plan as part of the last module in my course- (then hopefully i will pass and qualify....whoohoo lol)

 

The thing is, we are only allowed to concentrate on one area of development (yea i thought it was a little strange too concidering we are suppose to cater for all the areas) But anyway i have choosen to do physical development but my problem being, my placements theme for the next 6 weeks is minibeasts and my planning needs to fit in with theirs.

 

I also have to create 3 detailed plans but im struggling to come up with activites to cover the full six weeks.

 

I would be greatful is anyone can suggest any. Or if anyone knows of any good early years resource/activity site

 

Thank you all in advance

Hello CoolKitty.

 

One activity that I have carried out with my recpetion class this term (of 33!) is to explore how different minbeasts move. We explored how to move like the different minibeasts. Then in pairs the children have explored linking movements of different minibeasts together to create a short movement piece. We also considered moving at different levels and speeds depending on which minibeasts they were being.

 

Another idea was to dance/drama the life cycle of a butterfly. WE starting as an egg on a leaf and emerged from an egg. Then looked for food and ate leaves, wrapping ourselves into cocoons and finally emerging as a beautiful butterfly. My kids loved these activities. Hope they can help in some way.

The only things I can think of off the top of my head are for fine motor skills. Making finger puppets - perhaps butterflies? Making snails out of clay. My other thought was the same as Lyndsey - movements such as crawling like a worm, jumping like a grasshopper etc. Will continue to ponder whilst I make the dinner!! Good luck. :)

Hi coolkitty

 

You don't say what course you are doing, but it does sounds similar to the DPP module 2.

Are you going to plan to a theme as this would give you a starting point?

I choose mathematical development for my curriculum plan and based my activities around the theme of Food.

There are lots of sites you could try for activities l like DLTK and everything pre-school. There are lots more. If you have any ideas then perhaps someone could help more.

good luck

Have you had a look at the case study for a mini-beast obstacle course in the Foundation Stage Profile handbook?. There's only one session but it could so easily lead to a small series of related PD sessions.

Good idea too about making the finger puppets as fine motor PD plays just as an important role as the gross motor stuff

best of luck and enjoy!

Hello Coolkitty,

Are you able to go on a nature hunt to look for the beasties. Lots of physical !!!!

This remins me of something funny that a child said to me. We were all set to on a walk and one of the children asked to do another activity so I said maybe we can do it when we comeback. I went over to the cupboard to lock it and one of the children thought I was going to get a toy out called a walk!!!!!

HI Coolkitty, seem to have missed your post last week so welcome aboard! :D

 

Hi to you too Sassy if I haven't already met you, which I don't think I have :o

 

you could make wonderful caterpillars with overlapping circles, children could draw, colour, cut and stick the circles.

Butterflies are a wonderful way to explore symmetry too- perhaps finger painting them and folding over! Good hand eye coord to fold.

(fine motor control, handling tools etc = PD)

 

Have fun! :D
