Storytelling Den

Out for a walk in York today and went into the Museum gardens (due to go to the York Proms there next month) and whilst walking about saw this beautiful use of nature to create such a gorgeous and inviting storytelling den.

Product Feature: Resource of the Week

I’m delighted to be able to partner up with Daniel Larson, AKA Mr Early Years, to feature something from his wide range of downloadable and printable teaching resources.

This week: An Intervention Pack designed for TAs or other classroom assistants to grab. It includes activities for finger gym, numeracy, and writing. Allow the TAs to deliver targeted support without the stress of them having to plan it. It is also great for NQTs or new to Early Years teachers!
These activities are designed for children in Nursery, Reception and Year 1 but mainly focuses on Reception.

Showing appreciation

It can often be difficult for children to appreciate things. I saw this idea in a recent visit to St. Mary’s church on Holy Island I saw this beautiful crafted tree with apples covered in beautiful messages of thanks.

If you combine this with a discussion on what children like following it with asking why they like them.
