Growing book collection part 2😍

Oh and Julia Donaldson has become a firm favourite!

The encyclopedias, in my opinion, are gold dust... a bargain I just had to take advantage of.  Seriously facebook teacher buy and sell groups are soooo good.

I feel like I will be personally well resourced at this point.

Had these arrive today, I’ve seen lots of EYFS Teachers linking to the theme of ‘Supertato’ so thought I’d give it a go. Going to link it all in with our supermarket role-play. Looking forward to getting started..... #term1 #supertato #eyfsteacher #eyfsinspiration #eyfstwitterpals #eyfsfun #eyfsbooks
Just finished reading this book! Cannot wait to try it out in September! #eyfs #eyfstwitterpals #storytelling #helicopterstories #creativity #acting
Thank goodness for #tea and #coffee Finally we can enjoy our favourite beverages without having to #drink them in a rush before work! #summerholiday #teachersofinstagram

*SPACE SENSORY TRAY*
T asked me for a “REALLY EXCITING ACTIVITY” this afternoon (no pressure 😂😅). I hadn’t got anything planned but I threw together a little sensory tray on our moon surface, using star stickers, sparkly pom poms, and sequins. I also put a few numbers on to see what she does with them. So far we are filling craters with treasure, making the longest numbers we can, and making space potions 😉

Oh just expanding my personal book collection for the children I will teach across my career.

I aim to fill up every child's bucket by helping to promote self-confidence and I aim to offer them variety in respect to genres as I want them to genuinely love the magic that comes from reading books.

I still have lots to get and collect but at least I have started... some of these are second hand (from Facebook groups) whilst others I have bought brand new.

Love that I get to visit lots of inspiring #earlyyears settings with my job. Yesterday was Archway #Nursery Children's Centre. Waterfalls, caves, beautiful #artwork and chickens.

For #mathsonmonday today we’ve been looking at the rocket model which we made with our @theworksstores den building kit. We’ve been looking at which shapes we can find, and how many of each shape there are. We’ve counted 8 triangles, 15 squares and 1 octagon. What about you?

*STOP MOTION*
T & I have been working on a little stop motion animation this morning while A naps. She designed the characters 👽 and came up with the storyline, and we had a go using #stopmotionstudio to make a little movie 🎥 
#stopmotion #storytelling #spaceexploration
Now that we are nearing the half way point in the summer holidays (eeek!) I’m resisting the urge to have a complete panic at how much I still have to do! I’ve seen so many posts recently about ‘loose parts play’ and it got me thinking (again!) about how I’m organising my classroom. There are so many benefits to loose parts play for children, the opportunities for creativity, critical thinking, S&L etc are truly limitless HOWEVER how the heck do you store/organise your resources so that they’re easily accessible for little hands but doesn’t leave you with a classroom that resembles a horror scene?! 🤷🏻‍♀️ HELP!

Finally finished the dolls house. From an unloved house with all sorts of pen marks and goodness knows what else on 😳 to a house that my two girls are desperate to play with! There will be a strict ‘no pens allowed rule’ at school when they’re playing with the house 🤣 scroll left to see the transformation 😍

Oh I love my job! I get to work with with the loveliest of early educators and have some great discussions around children’s learning. Here are our photos from the morning we spent reflecting on Enabling Environments. We talked about moving away from perfection and instead involving children as much as we can in the decisions we make. We thought about our uniqueness too and celebrated this! #eyfstwitterpals #receptionteachers #prek #hyggeintheearlyyears #enablingenvironment #eyfs #earlyyears #eycpdwithadifference

WORRIES, TEARS AND ANXIETY IN CHILDREN: I’ve got a new post over on the blog all about supporting young children with their emotional development. .
The post talks about how to set up a ‘thinking, feelings and talking station’ at home or in the classroom and also some ideas for an ‘on the go’ worry bag like this one 👆🏻which you can take with you when out and about. .
The post includes info as to how the area can link in to literacy, technology and other areas of learning and I have included a link to a free printable for you to use in your own provision area with your child/children. .
Would love your thoughts and feedback on this one, especially if you think there is something else we can add in or if you have given this one a go yourself? .

Some ice play to cool down today. J and I celebrated our eighth wedding anniversary last week and he bought me some lovely blooms but yesterday they suddenly wilted - so what better use for them than some nature play?! I stuck them in as many tupperwares as I could find lids for (where do they all go?!), topped up with water and threw in the freezer. We ended up coming inside before we’d finished playing with them so we popped them back in the freezer ready for another day.

We always do a whole school display in September in the hall and this year it will be based around international dot day; do you take part in this; what activities do you do?? #ukteachers #teacher #teachersofinstagram #headteacher #eyfstwitterpals #internationaldotday #thedot #teachersfollowteachers
Some things I have bought👍🏾; a lot of things I have downloaded, edited and laminated✂️; and others I have designed and made myself✍. I have spent the last few days cutting, laminating and cutting again.  The bag in front of the 'creative area sign' is an A3 pouch full to the brim of my laminated stuff.  My theory is, do it now, stick it up with blutac and you'll have it for life (or a long time, providing I look after it and file it well when not in use). I am feeling more and more ready for this NQT challenge in EYFS. 💎Can you guess my theme?💎

Continuing with the #space theme, this morning T & I have built a rocket using our den building kit from @theworksstores. She also made a control panel and a sign, just in case anyone was uncertain that it’s a ‘rockit’. 🚀😍 Now she’s busy letting her imagination run wild as she plays, in astronaut uniform of flamingo PJs and her @flyingtiger Astronaut helmet. Meanwhile, A is running around clutching my Bluetooth speaker, which is currently playing Holst’s #planetsuite. 🌍🌙🌟☄️☀️
Now I’m being called away to help make some #rocketboosters. Hope we don’t run into any aliens! 👽

T has been wanting to find out all about #space recently; so this morning I put out a little invitation to create so that she could have a go at painting some planets. 
Of course she wanted to dive straight in, but I encouraged her to try and slow down a little and look carefully at the colours and patterns before trying to recreate them. 
We also experimented with colour mixing together to try and get the shades she wanted.

Seeing the benefits that Tales Toolkit brings to early years learning is just the best thing! Check out the #progress to this child's work from the after photo to the before! We're super proud of all the teachers using #talestoolkit in their #schools, keep up the amazing work!

BLACK PLAYDOUGH .
.

I think it’s my new favourite kind of playdough - originally I was going to add glitter and have a bit of a space theme going on, but then Arthur was pleading for a ‘builder activity’ and so the playdough became our tarmac for digging up and laying new roads! .
.

We really could have done with a steam roller toy, but the rolling pin had to do and proved to be a pretty good arm, chest and hand muscle work out for Arthur which is fab for building up the strength needed to eventually become a good writer when the time comes. .
.

You can enhance this activity by adding in Mark making materials and clipboards for your little contractors to draw up plans, tick off checklists, write receipts, sign contracts  and make warning signs for nearby pedestrians!! Measuring tools can be used to add a mathematical element to the play. .
.

Unfortunately our play didn’t last quite long enough for the required enhancements because Arthur forgot to tidy away the playdough when he had finished and we had a fan blowing in the room....next activity....a coal mine??!? 😂🙈

I left out some sequin patterns for T to have a go at this morning. She’s very capable of recognising and continuing a pattern; but when making her own she sometimes forgets about the repetition. We talked about some of the different ways a pattern can repeat (eg AB, ABB, ABC) and she’s been having a go at making her own. #mathsonmonday
