Continuous provision in year 2?


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hello

I am new to year 2 and am hoping to get advice and tips from those with experience of adopting a continuous provision ethos in a year 2 classroom. At present I am trying an intergrated maths and English morning. I have a TA in the morning so one of us does English focus activities and one of us does maths. When the children are not working with us there are learning challenges for them to complete in different areas of the classroom. I am finding maths learning challenges easier to organise but am struggling with English ones. It would be fantastic to hear from others who are making this approach work successfully and to develop ideas that I can try to implement. At the moment I feel nervous about whether this is going to work!

would it be easier to have a maths morning one day and literacy the next so learning intentions are tighter and both of you know what you're looking for (especially TA)? i used to do this in reception (i haven't been in key stage 1), and feel the learning was consolidated through all CP, and we would look for learning between working with groups, and it was easier to spot!

I am in Reception now but I did previously teach in year 2 which worked a foundation stage ethos It has since gone more formal, much to my disappointment as I thought it worked really well.

 

I ran literacy mornings one day and then maths mornings the other day. I did a maths and literacy input daily which would introduce a new challenge. Literally challenges all linked in with the adult led learning and children had all week to complete the challenges. I had math target cards with an individual target for each child which they had to work on each week. The first week after each half term when they were updated I spend time showing the children how they could work on it and it was so successful. Children would extend them once they had met them. Other challenges linked with the literacy and maths learning. On a literacy morning, each adult would work with a group while the other two groups did challenges. After break they swapped over. I loved it and children made good progress.
