Planning For New Term...


 Share

Recommended Posts

I am looking for some help and a chance to moan a bit. At the start of next term I will have 4 children in nursery, of these 4, 3 have additional support needs of varying degrees. My colleague and I are feeling a bit overwhelmed at the prospect of this. During induction I noticed that only 1 has any real colour recognition, so I thought this would be a good place to start, but colour recognition is no longer a part of the Scottish Curriculum. I am looking for ideas on activities and displays that I can use to stimulate some interest in the children.

 

I know that having only 4 children sounds like bliss to everyone who has larger numbers, and ordinarily it would be fantastic, but the fact that there are 3 with ASN, to be honest, is kind of freaking me out.

 

Anyway, I would really appreciate any help that anyone can give me on possible activities or plans for a theme of colour that I can adapt and extend to fit in with Curriculum for Excellence.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Fiona

Hi, it is awful when no one replies.

 

Re planning just keep it simple do not stress. Observation is the key to all planning, observe the children during the first few weeks and plan from your observations.

interactive displays made from different forms of textures which will include colour

 

red bumpy

 

blue smooth and shiney

 

yellow rough etc

 

Somewhere along those lines

difficult one to answer as i dont know what difficulties these children have and dont know the scottish curriculum! but if it helps we did a lovely display (some time ago) which had two colours flowing into a tin of paint and the mixed colour flowing out...it worked very well was very self explanatory and we made it 3d ...you could have 'talking tins' on the front of the paint tins so that when pressed they same the names of the colours...actually i think only having 4 children is quite difficult...hard work for you so good luck :o
