Chapter 1

I lived at the forge with Joe and Mrs Joe. My trembly fears were the result of living with Mrs Joe. The small warm feeling I had of not being quite alone in

I didn’t have great expectations. I didn’t have any expectations. I had a great many trembly fears.

the world came from living with Joe. “Ever the best of friends, eh Pip?” said Joe. Pip – that was me.

I spent a lot of time in the graveyard. It’s the first place I remember. Not the forge, with the red fire and the low roof and the wild bare marsh all around. Not the wet, rutty road that led to the village and then to the town and then on to far-off wonders: London, perhaps, or the end of the world. The graveyard. If I felt in the right place anywhere at all it was in there, puzzling over the gravestones. My father was there, and my mother, and my five little brothers. The reason I wasn’t there too was a mystery to everyone.

Collins Big Cat

Every book contains a unique reader response activity and Ideas for reading page, helping you to monitor reading comprehension through dialogue and activities.

Collins Big Cat has made a real difference to our progress in reading. The children love the books and the feedback from parents has been so positive. I would be happy p to recommend it to any school. Yvonne C Cullen, ll S St John’s Primary

Sample pages from Seahorses

Learning objectives, curriculum links, highfrequency and interest words are highlighted, and activities ensure children are reading for meaning and connecting reading to writing.

Ideas for reading Written by Clare Dowdall BA(Ed), MA(Ed) Lecturer and Primary Literacy Consultant

Getting started Learning objectives: find specific information in simple texts; read more challenging texts which can be decoded using acquired phonic knowledge and skills along with automatic recognition of high frequency words; distinguish fiction and non-fiction texts and the different purposes for reading them; ask and answer questions, make relevant contributions, offer suggestions and take turns; convey information and ideas in simple non-narrative forms

• Ask children if they know what a seahorse is and if they can describe what a seahorse looks like.

Curriculum links: Science: Ourselves

• Look at the words seahorses and amazing. Discuss strategies for reading these longer words, e.g. looking for shorter known words or chunks within words; looking for familiar word endings.

High frequency words: about, their, don’t, people Interest words: life cycle, seahorses, special, centimetres, forwards, upright, stomach, shrimps, reefs, coral, pouch, kangaroo, millimetres Word count: 276 Resources: internet

• Look at the cover together. Explain that this is a seahorse and ask children to describe its appearance to a partner using descriptive vocabulary. • Read the blurb together. Ask children if this is a story book or an information book and how they will know.

Reading and responding • Read pp2–3 with children. Ask children to tell you what is special about seahorses. Model how to collect key information from the text, e.g. their tails curl forwards.

• Read the fact box with the children. Explain what a fact box is and that the book is full of facts about seahorses. • Ask children to read aloud to the end of the book. Support them to read and help them to note key facts by asking them questions.

Checking and moving on • Ask children to draw a picture of a seahorse and label the parts with as much information as they can, e.g. they have heads like horses.

Seahorses

Returning to the book • Discuss the idea of a life cycle. Using pp22–23, help children to see that a life cycle doesn’t have a beginning or end and discuss why they think this is. • Challenge children to find a tricky word and explain how they decoded it. • Model how to choose an amazing fact to share. Ask children to work in pairs to find and share an amazing fact that they have learnt from their reading. • Ask children what they have found out about how seahorses have babies. What is different to other animals that they know about?

they have heads like horses

fin they have tails like monkey tails

• Help children to find out more about seahorses using the internet and ask them to make notes of the key facts. • Help children to make a quiz for the class using the amazing facts that they have collected from their reading of the book and their research.

Reading more Spines, Stings and Teeth (Green/Band 5) is another book about creatures under the sea.

Phonics Handbook Helping you to support phonic learning, the handbook offers Benchmark Assessments to check expected progress during the programme. Clear and practical guidance on how to secure progression is offered for children who are under-achieving. Saving you lesson-planning time, the handbook also contains photocopiable assessment support. You can also find practical tips about how to extend learning, using activities.

COLLINS BIG CAT PHONICS HANDBOOK

DETAILED PROGRAMME OUTLINE

Sessions 27–46 (no longer than 10 minutes, for all subsequent sessions) Tips For blending, point to each sound, then sweep along the word to blend. For segmenting use finger counting with the children – signal each sound by raising a finger, starting with your thumb. If you are left-handed, start with the little finger of your left hand. Play games using a ‘robot’ voice and a puppet who cannot blend three sounds. Say ‘t-a-p’ and ask them which word it makes.

Your observations of the children should indicate several children who will be ready for reading Collins Big Cat Phonics Readers Red A. Work with a small group of two to four children and see how they get on.

Sessions 47–66 Tips

Sing the Alphabet Song and do the Rainbow Letters activity on the CD-ROM. Do the air-writing activity. Using the outside learning area, ask the children to paint their names in water and to make an alphabet snake with letters.

Ask your teaching assistant to observe individual children that may be struggling, using Observation A on page 72 or Benchmark Assessment A on page 63. Is there a hearing difficulty?

1. Say All phonemes from the first set have now been introduced. These go on being repeated every session until 150.

2. Blend Practised for 20 sessions

Make up a story about Stan the slug. Try out more children with Collins Big Cat Phonics Readers.

Make a duplicate set of name cards for sorting into sets, e.g. same initial letter, same number of syllables, boys’ names, girls’ names.

Break up the sessions by using an activity on the CD-ROM on one or two days. Praise children for writing as part of their play, e.g. in their role-play, they can write labels for the ‘shop’. Praise children for attempting to spell words, using their phonic knowledge. Tell them Big Cat and Snappy would be pleased!

Sample pages from Shapes on the Seashore

Ideas for reading at the back of each book supports each child with learning objectives; curriculum links; and high-frequency and interest words highlighted

Ideas for reading Written by Clare Dowdall BA(Ed), MA(Ed) Lecturer and Primary Literacy Consultant

Learning objectives: read independently and with increasing fluency longer and less familiar texts; draw together ideas and information from across a whole text; engage with books through exploring and enacting interpretations; adopt appropriate roles in small and large groups and consider alternative courses of action

Curriculum links: History: What was it like to live here in the past? Citizenship: Choices Interest words: pickpockets, gruel, courage, undertaker, artful, punishments, handkerchiefs Word count: 2,088 Resources: whiteboard, internet, DVDs about Victorian London

Getting started • Ask children if they know the famous story Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens, or if they’ve seen a film or musical version of it. Explain that the original book was written over 150 years ago in Victorian Times and that this is a shortened version written for children nowadays. • Ask children to predict what it was like in Victorian times and make notes on a whiteboard. • Show the children the illustration of Oliver Twist on the front cover. Ask what they can work out from the picture, e.g. he wants food. • Read the blurb with the children. Ask children to suggest what a “band of young pickpockets” is and establish that they are child-thieves who steal from pockets.

Reading and responding • Walk through the book together. Ask children to notice how it is organised in chapters and to look at the illustrations to get a flavour of what will happen in this story. • Ask children to read pp2–3 quietly, looking for three facts about Oliver. Help children to recount their ideas.

Activities promote higher-order thinking; speaking and listening; and writing skills

• Ask children to read independently to p29, paying particular attention to what life was like for Oliver in Victorian London and how his fortune changed throughout the story.

Returning to the book • Ask children to recount the key events that happened to Oliver throughout the story, in order, and list them on a whiteboard. Discuss how Oliver can be described at each key event, e.g. he was bold when he asked for more gruel. • Using the information on pp30–31, ask children to discuss the different posters, exploring who has written each poster and why each character wants to find Oliver. • Create cameos of Nancy, Fagin, the Artful Dodger and Oliver, where children introduce themselves in role and recount their part in the story to the group, assuming they are talking after the event. • Lead a discussion about the character of Nancy. How does her behaviour and personality change throughout the story and why do the children think that this is?

Checking and moving on

12th March

• Support children to write a letter to Nancy from Oliver, after he has been saved. Remind them of the key features of letter writing, e.g. beginning the letter by addressing the recipient.

Dear Nancy, Thank you for telling Mr Brownlow about what happened to me ...

• Using the internet, research what life was like for poor families and children in Victorian London. Search for information about workhouses and education. Watch clips from film versions of Oliver using DVDs or the internet. • Ask children to prepare an information sheet about what life was like in Victorian London, using images, for a classroom display.

Reading more Charles Dickens (Lime/Band 11) is a biography of the author.

I always fiddle with my goggles before a race.

I just thought I could get a medal, so I went for it, which paid off because I came first! I was on such a high, I don’t really remember much about the swimming, just that the others were very close to me. We were all in a line, and I thought to myself that I could do it if I just pushed myself a tiny bit harder. When you watch the recording of the race back, you can see that when I actually hit the wall I didn’t know I’d won because the race was so close. I’m looking at the scoreboard and you can see the moment when it registers because I just started to shake. It was so emotional because it was my dream and I’d tried so hard, I was just so happy with myself; that’s

my goggles – I don’t want them to leak so I’m always touching them and my hat. I’m also thinking about the race. It sounds weird, but I think about whether it’s the 100-metre freestyle, or the 400-metre freestyle, I think about how many lengths it is, what stroke it is, how I’m going to swim it; that’s all going through my head. The nerves got the better of me on that first day. I just felt that I couldn’t do it, so didn’t do as well as I’d hoped. But I think missing out on that is what spurred me on to go for it in my 100-metre freestyle race the next day, and I qualified second going into the final. 49

Ask: What is the answer to this number sentence? How do you know? How did you work it out? Did anyone work it out in a different way?

Count and show the frog making two jumps back. Write and say: 3 – 2 = 1. One is two less than three. Write 4 –  = 2.

• Can you use these numbers and signs to make a subtraction calculation? 4 3 1 – = • Can we start the number sentence with the smallest number? Why not? • If you know that 4 – 1 = 3, what other subtraction calculation do you know? • What if we change the – to a +? What number sentences can we write now?

Ask: Four and how many less will leave two? (2) Count and show the frog making two jumps back. Write and say: 4 – 2 = 2. Two less than four is two. Repeat above several times, using different shapes to stand for the unknown number. Start the subtraction calculations for three, (e.g. 3 – 2, 3 – 1), before starting with larger numbers (e.g. 4 – 0, 4 – 3, 5 – 1, etc.).

Common difficulties and remediation Children sometimes find subtraction facts to be abstract, and may remember them without really understanding them. If they have not remembered them accurately then, without understanding the processes involved, they will find it hard to see their mistakes. Explain the subtraction facts using concrete examples to illustrate each calculation. Relate these where possible to the children’s everyday situations to make their learning more meaningful.

Securing number facts, understanding shape

Unit overview continued Children solve one-step and two-step word problems set in real-life contexts, including money problems, by choosing and using appropriate number operations and methods. They share ideas and listen to others, suggesting how methods could be improved and incorporating the proposals of others where appropriate. They pose their own word problems, and solve number puzzles by drawing on their understanding of number patterns, properties and relationships.

Objectives for this unit

Children solve problems involving solid shapes. They investigate the properties of prisms, hemispheres and other 3-D solids, naming and describing them, and sorting them by their properties.

PNS Framework objectives Using and applying mathematics • Represent the information in a puzzle or problem using numbers, images or diagrams; use these to find a solution and present it in context, where appropriate using £.p notation or units of measure • Identify patterns and relationships involving numbers or shapes, and use these to solve problems

Knowing and using number facts • Derive and recall all addition and subtraction facts for each number to 20, sums and differences of multiples of 10 and number pairs that total 100 • Derive and recall multiplication facts for the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10 times tables and the corresponding division facts; recognise multiples of 2, 5 or 10 up to 1000 • Use knowledge of number operations and corresponding inverses, including doubling and halving, to estimate and check calculations

Understanding shape • Relate 2-D shapes and 3-D solids to drawings of them; describe, visualise, classify, draw and make the shapes

National Curriculum 2000 KS2 programme of study

They work with a greater range of 2-D shapes, and recognise quadrilaterals. They draw 2-D shapes and make them, using paper, geostrips, and other shapes. They list the properties of the shapes that they create.

• Use notation diagrams and symbols correctly within a given problem • Check results and ensure that solutions are reasonable in the context of the problem

N1g D1e/N4c /S1d

• Recognise, represent and interpret simple number relationships • Search for pattern in their results; develop logical thinking • Recognise and describe number patterns, using these to make predictions

N4d

• Recall all addition and subtraction facts for each number to 20 • Work out what they need to add to any two-digit number to make 100 • Recall multiplication facts to 10 × 10 and use them to derive quickly the corresponding division facts • Recognise two- and three-digit multiples of 2, 5 or 10 • Develop further their understanding of the four number operations and the relationships between them including inverses; use the related vocabulary • Make mental estimates of the answers to calculations; check results • Estimate answers by approximating and checking that their results are reasonable by thinking about the context of the problem, and where necessary checking accuracy [e.g. by using the inverse operation, by repeating the calculation in a different order]

Key objectives for this unit are in bold.

Unit overview Children solve problems and puzzles involving numbers and shapes, using their increasing understanding of number facts and properties of shapes and numbers. They identify patterns and relationships involving odd and even numbers.

Prior learning Build on previous learning by checking children can:

triangle, square, rectangle, quadrilateral, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, circle, semi-circle, cube, cuboid, pyramid, cone, cylinder, prism, sphere, hemisphere, face, edge, vertex/vertices, surface, solid, side, straight, curved, diagram, right-angled

solve one-step word problems involving numbers, money or measures

recognise whether answers to word problems are sensible

identify number or shape patterns, predicting the next number or shape in a sequence and trying examples to check whether their prediction is correct

say or write all addition and subtraction facts for all numbers to 10, all number pairs totalling 20 or less, and all number pairs of multiples of 10 totalling 100 or less

Cross-curricular links

say or write multiplication facts and the corresponding division facts for the times tables for 2, 5 and 10

Rocks and soils: Measure the diameter of puddles on different surfaces. (Sci 3d))

• • •

identify two-digit multiples of 2, 5 and 10

Speaking and listening Sustain conversation, explaining or giving reasons for their views or choices.

Science

sort a set of common 2-D and 3-D shapes recognise the properties of common 2-D and 3-D shapes and relate actual shapes to pictur s of them

They practise addition and subtraction facts for all numbers to 20, and for multiples of 10. They recognise that addition is the inverse of subtraction and vice versa, stating related subtraction and addition facts, and use this relationship to check the results of calculations. Children use what they know about counting in steps of 2, 5 and 10 to help them recall the multiplication and division facts for these numbers. They recognise two-digit and three-digit multiples of 2, 5 or 10.

Reviewing the 2, 5 and 10 times tables

Objective

Main teaching continued

3 – 5

• Derive and recall multiplication facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables

Revise the 10 times table by displaying various quantities of multibase ten blocks, e.g. pointing to 2 tens, ask: How many altogether? (20) What is this as a calculation? (2 × 10 = 20) If appropriate, write: 2 × 10 = 20.

Continue with a few more examples. Ask: What patterns do you notice?

Differentiation Pack Patterns of 2, 5 and 10 ECM 7

Resources coloured pencils (per child)

Review children’s knowledge of the 2 times table by asking them to double numbers in random order between 1 and 10.

• • •

Display the four key facts for the 2 times table.

Ask: Using these number facts, what is the answer to 9 times 2? (18) Write the calculation above 10 × 2 = 20.

Ask: How can you work out the answer to this fact using the key facts? (10 × 2 is 20 so 9 × 2 is 2 less than 20, which is 18)

Repeat for the remaining multiplication facts writing the calculations in the appropriate places.

When all the 2 times table facts are on the board, rub out the answer to one number fact at a time in random order and ask children to recall the answer.

• •

Display the multiples of 5.

Ask: What can you tell me about the number facts we have just written? (they are similar to the ones used for the 2 times table, they are the key facts)

Common difficulties and remediation

Say: Now let’s use these number facts to help us recall the other multiplication facts for the 5 times table.

Follow the same process as for the 2 times table until all of the number facts for the 5 times table are on the board.

If children experience difficulties in recalling the multiplication facts, spend more time working on recalling the ‘key multiplication facts’ and using these to help them derive the answers to unknown multiplication facts.

Erase all of the calculations, leaving only the multiples. Ask quickfire questions, e.g. What is 7 times 5? Be sure to use a range of appropriate mathematical vocabulary.

Say: The 10 times table is the easiest. We don’t need the key facts to help us remember these.

Ask children for answers to these facts and write them on the board.

Plenary 6

Say: These are the easiest number facts for the 2 times table. We can use these to help us with all of the other remaining facts for the 2 times table.

Ask: Who can tell me which of the four facts for the 5 times table equals 50 / 25 / 10 / 5? Write the number fact to the left of the multiple, i.e. 10 × 5 = 50.

• Display the 1 to 10 number cards and ‘× 2’. • Say: When I point to one of the number cards I want you to multiply that number by 2 and call out the answer as quickly as possible.

• Once the children have called out the answer, reveal the multiple of 2 on the other side of the card.

7 – 8

• Continue until all of the multiples of 2 have been revealed. • Repeat with × 5 and × 10. • Remind children to use the key facts to help them work out the answers to any unknown facts.

• What is 10 times 4? • Tell me a multiplication fact with an answer of 40. • Did you know that tables fact by heart? If you didn’t, how did you work it out?

Say: So, 1 add 5 equals 6, is the opposite of 6 take away 5 equals 1.

If appropriate, repeat for the addition and subtraction number facts for 8 using Discussion Book 2 page 37.

Conclude by writing an addition number fact that the children are secure with on the other side of the large sheet of paper, e.g. 3 + 2 = 5.

Ask: Who can tell me the subtraction fact that goes with this addition fact? (accept 5 – 2 = 3 and/or 5 – 3 = 2) Write the corresponding subtraction fact(s) underneath the addition fact.

Elicit from the children that they show apples and oranges and that these are both fruit.

This teaching sequence focuses on the addition and subtraction number facts for Adapting the 6 and 8 to help children develop an understanding that subtraction is the inverse of teaching sequence addition and vice versa, and to use this to derive and record related addition and subtraction number sentences. If appropriate, use one of the other addition and subtraction number facts to 10, substituting Discussion Book 2 pages 35 and 37 for either Discussion Book 2 pages 32–34, 36, 38 or 39, or RCMs 37–44.

Practise

Ask: How many apples are there? (5) Next to the ‘1’ write: ‘+ 5 =’. Ask: So, how many pieces of fruit are there altogether? (6) Complete the calculation so it reads: ‘1 + 5 = 6’. Still referring to the first row of fruit ask: How many pieces of fruit are there altogether in this row? (6) Do we need to count them? (no) That’s right, we know that there are 6 pieces of fruit. Ask: If I were to take away all the apples from this row, how many apples would I take away? (5) Cover the apples with your hand and ask: How many pieces of fruit are left? (1) Complete the calculation so it reads: ‘6 – 5 = 1’. Referring to the two calculations written on the sheet of paper, say: Look at these two number sentences. Ask: What can you tell me about them? (one is an addition, the other is a subtraction, they both contain the same three digits: 1, 5 and 6) Repeat the above for the remaining rows for the number facts for 6, eliciting from the children the following facts: 3 + 3 = 6 and 6 – 3 = 3 2 + 4 = 6 and 6 – 4 = 2 0 + 6 = 6 and 6 – 6 = 0 After each pair of facts has been identified, be sure to discuss with the children the relationship between each pair of addition and subtraction facts.

Repeat several times. Finally, write a subtraction fact on the sheet of paper for the children to offer the related addition fact(s).

Say: There are 6 pieces of fruit in each row. Remember that, I’m not going to add any more fruit or take away any, there will always be 6 pieces of fruit. So we don’t need to count each row of fruit every time. We know there will always be 6 pieces of fruit in each row.

Teaching support

Page 1 Famous Mathematicians • Most children should know square numbers up to and including 102, but not all may be familiar with triangular numbers and oblong numbers.

The important aspect of this activity is not being able to write the 5th to 10th square, triangular and oblong numbers, but rather working out a rule or formula for finding any square, triangular or oblong number.

If children are not confident with writing a mathematical rule or formula, discuss with them possible ways of writing this, including the use of symbols such as a or n.

Page 4 Looking for Patterns • Ensure children have completed the Famous Mathematicians activity on page 3 before starting on this activity.

Children include a decimal point or the minus sign to show a negative number. What is the smallest number possible they can display from a given number of light bars?

100

Children discuss how they could use less paper. For example, working as a pair or group with only one taking notes.

Focus on Science • Ensure children have completed the above before starting on this activity.

Page 2 The Puzzler • Allow the children to use a calculator for reference. Children explore how many three-digit numbers they can make with, for example, ten light bars only. What about four-digit numbers with only ten light bars?

Children investigate further the life and work of Fibonacci.

Let’s Investigate • Ensure children complete this activity before starting on the Focus on Science activity which follows.

If appropriate, discuss with the children the algebraic convention for omitting the multiplication sign when writing an algebraic expression, i.e. n(n + 1) rather than n × (n + 1).

Once the children have completed the activity, discuss with them their methods of working. Were they able to identify the pattern and apply the rule to working out how many pairs of rabbits there would be at the end of the year?

Let’s Investigate activity

Estimates vary hugely from 8000 to 100 000 sheets, as to how much paper is produced from one tree. The most important aspect of this activity is the children justifying their comparisons.

Introduction Overview This is an amusing narrative extract about Mrs Wobble the Waitress (from the series Happy Families ) who finds it difficult to carry food out to her customers.

Before you read • SL: AF1, AF2 Discuss the attributes that are needed for a job waitressing in a café or restaurant. Ask the children which jobs they would like to do and discuss what skills might be required for those jobs.

Reversing sentences • R: AF1, AF2

Working with phrases; deductive answering in sentences • R: AF2, AF3; W: AF6 1. Choose words from each column to make sentences about the story. Their sentences should be: Mrs Wobble was very upset when she lost her job. Master Wobble skated to the rescue to catch the chicken. Miss Wobble skated to the rescue to catch the soup. 2. Write a sentence to answer each question. a) Why did the customers cheer? The customers cheered out of relief. b) Why did the customers think their meal was “more fun than a circus”? They thought that the activities and atmosphere in the restaurant was very entertaining.

Summarising; outcome prediction; critical evaluation of content • R: AF3; W: AF1, AF2 1. Write a summary of the story of Mrs Wobble the Waitress in your own words. Your summary should be no more than 40 words. (Children’s own answer.) Notes: This summary writing can be difficult for some children. Support the children by having an initial discussion (class or groups) to isolate the main idea and key events. 2. Write a few sentences to tell how you think the story might finish. Try to make it interesting or funny. (Children’s own answer.) Notes: This requires children to have understood the story in order to predict possible outcomes. Choose other, similar stories to be read aloud to the class. 3. Write a set of rules to make sure your kitchen at home is a safe place. (Children’s own answer.) Notes: This question requires the children to draw on experience outside the text.

Author biography • Allan Ahlberg was born near London in 1938. • He was a teacher for ten years before he wrote his first book, The Brick Street Boys. • Allan collaborated with his wife Janet, who illustrated many of his prize-winning titles, before she sadly died in 1994. • They worked closely together in a process he described as ’getting an idea and batting it around, like table tennis’. • Allan has continued to write collections and picture books as well as novels and poetry, most of which are inspired by his years as a teacher.

Here are the answers to four questions about the story. Write the question for each one. One has been done to help you.

An enrichment section provides extension activities to challenge more able learners.

Enrichment • In groups, the children can discuss whether it was fair of Mrs Wobble’s previous employer to sack her and, indeed, sensible for her family to set up a café for her in their own home. (R: AF3; SL: AF2) • Talk about how both children and adults with disabilities can be enabled to participate as fully as possible in activities which they might otherwise find difficult. (SL: AF2)

• Ask the children to imagine they have a condition that means they can’t stop shaking. Ask them to make a list of the things they might find most difficult to do. (W: AF2) Resource Sheet 20A (R: AF2; W: AF6) Resource Sheet 20B (W: AF2)

Belair Early Years Nurture early learning with a wealth of creative and practical ideas for learning through play ideal to support the Early Years Foundation Stage 2012. Twelve exciting books offer ideas across all areas of learning. ●

Tried-and-tested activities provide a flexible and non-prescriptive approach to working with children, with clear learning intentions provided for each topic.

Imaginative themes encourage children to play, explore and learn actively in the classroom and outdoors.

Any pieces can be chosen, but the model must contain the correct number of pieces. Make a label for each model, showing who made it and what it is. Display the models with a sign saying ‘Look what we can make with 10 cubes!’

Play Foundations

NEW

Age 0-5

Play Foundations

EY

New editions of the award-winning Play Foundations series, fully revised and updated to match the Early Years Foundation Stage 2012 curriculum. ●

An exciting collection of play-based activities focused on child-initiated learning with six books for children aged 0 to 3 and six books for children aged 3 to 5.

The focus of each activity is clearly identified by prime and specific areas of learning and development in a straightforward planning chart.

Books for children aged 3 to 5 include an engaging CD-ROM with photos, film clips, stories, songs and rhymes for children to use with adult support.

Stepping stones

References to the Early Learning Goals and statements from Development Matters to support observation and assessment of progress.

CD-ROM resources Beach

Early learning goal Children use everyd to talk about size, ay language weight, capacity, position, distanc e, compare quantit time and money to ies and objects and to solve problems. They and describe pattern recognise, create s. They explore characteristics of everyday objects shapes and use and mathematical langua to describe them. ge

Setting up Collect materials in different textures suitable for the he children to walk on (a small paving stone, roof slate, artificial grass, a folded towel, a square of carpet, a prickly doormat, a square of sponge foam, a fluffy rug, cork tile, vinyl floor tile, a blanket, a large square of rough sandpaper, square of fur fabric). Arrange the items around the outdoor area in a ‘stepping stone’ line so that children can step from one piece to another.

Getting started • Look at the film clip ‘Beach’ on the CD-ROM and talk about what it feels like to go barefoot. Many children may not associate their feet with the sense of touch. Take them outdoors to the texture trail and ask them to remove their shoes and socks. Invite the children to walk along the ‘toe-tickling trail’ from one stepping stone to another. Encourage them to tap, rub and stamp on the different materials and describe the feeling underneath their feet. • Draw the children’s attention to the direction and placing of the stepping stones and encourage the use of positional language: Where is the paving slab? Which stepping stone is behind you? What is the stepping stone before the cork tile?

Let’s talk! Ask, Which stepping stone is between the roof tile and the towel? What is thee last stepping stone made of? Which stepping stone is next to the carpet tile? For children needing support, ask Which stepping stones feel prickly under your feet? For children requiring challenge, ask Can you take three steps forward (two steps back)? What does that stepping stone feel like under your feet? Note which children understand and use positional language such as before, next to, around, behind, in front of, middle, beside, end and so on during their exploration of the stepping stones.

Texture alphabet CD-ROM resources ABC song

Setting up

Early learning goal Children listen attentiv ely in a range of situations. They e accurately anticip listen to stories, ating key events and respond to what they hear with relevant comme nts, actions. They give questions or their attention to what others say appropriately, whileand respond engaged in another activity.

Top tip

Reach every child with ideas for adapting the activities to meet varying abilities and rates of development.

Give the children sufficient time and opportunity to explore the textures with their feet, encouraging them to suggest their own ideas for materials to use and devising their own stepping stone trail, with adult support.

Cut out large lower-case letters of the alphabet from card or thick paper (about 15cm by 15cm). Gather an assortment of materials whose starting letter of the alphabet is easily identifiable. For example, sandpaper, sequins or sand for the letter ‘s’, cotton wool balls for ‘c’, buttons or birdseed for ‘b’, flocked wallpaper pieces for ‘w’, kitchen roll or old keys for ‘k’.

Differentiation

Getting started

Further ideas

• Listen to the ‘ABC song’ on the CD-ROM and encourage the children to sing along. Show the alphabet letters to the children and ask them to identify any that they can. Invite them to select one of the letters and trace around it with their finger. Can they say what it is? • Let the children examine the collection of materials closely, feeling the texture, looking at the colours and saying what they think the materials are. Ask them to select something that begins with the same letter that they are holding in their hand and stick it on to their letter. When completed, ask the children to stand in a line holding their letters, beginning with the letter ‘a’, and sing the ‘ABC song’. Display the texture alphabet around the walls.

• Have a treasure hunt in the outdoor area by hiding pieces of the materials and asking the children to find something rough/smooth, hard/soft or warm/cold.

Use a smaller number of stepping stones with children who need support. Let them walk along the trail with a partner to hold their hand and help them to step from stone to stone. For children requiring challenge, fold towels into triangular shapes, cut round pieces of artificial grass, fur fabric and so on and use a square paving slab and rectangular roof tile for them to identify on a ‘shapes’ toe-tickling trail.

Exploring Materials

31

Let’s talk! Ask, What letter have you chosen? What sound does your letter make? What does your letter feel like? For children needing support, ask What have you chosen to glue on to your letter? For children requiring challenge, ask What else could you use on your letter ‘r’ other than red ribbon? Notice those children who can name the letters of the alphabet. Who can recognise the initial sound in a word? Note those children who can link sounds to letters.

Top tip Support children whose first language is not English. Pronounce the letter sounds clearly during this activity and also during everyday activities. Draw the children’s attention to Braille and sign language which are used by children who are hearing or visually impaired.

Differentiation Concentrate on one letter at a time with children who require support. Make a feely box and place a selection of the texture alphabet letters inside. Ask children needing challenge to identify the letter and the materials used to create the texture.

Further ideas • Some more ideas for letter textures are noodles for ‘n’, lace or paper doilies for ‘l’, dried peas or pasta for ‘p’, red ribbon or rice for ‘r’, dried grass or grain for ‘g’, teabags for ‘t’, small umbrella shapes cut from fabric for ‘u’, zig-zag shapes for ‘z’.
