I'm looking for an interesting calendar idea for year 1. Would anybody mind sharing their ideas?
This works for any year group. Buy a mixture of pasta shapes or use bottle tops, ring pulls, string etc. Each child has a sheet of A4 sugar paper, glues down shapes/items in an interesting design, symmetric or othrwise or a picture. You spray each sheet silver/gold or a combination of both. Mount on red or black card, make a loop at the top with a glittery pipe cleaner, attach a calendar at the bottom with a coloured ribbon... hey presto...calendar!!
Last year my Y1's did a calendar based on colours of the year. I divided A4 paper into quarters. In each quarter they stuck overlapped ripped pieces of tissue paper in colours of that season - greens and yellow for spring, yellow, orange and red - summer, orange, brown etc - autumn and blues and white and grey for winter. Laminated them and stuck calendar tabs on bottom - a funky calendar that can stay up all year round!
Hope this helps x
I have done a few different things
take a pic of the child and then print it off - especially good if you have had a 'day' in school - blue day for anti bullying - or a class dress up day - then the child draws themself on the other half of the page - great to keep up all year round !
paper circle folded into quarters and the children draw a pic for each season - caendar tab glued to a split pin - calendar can be turned to the correct season
