half-term planning - History, toys.

Discussion in 'Primary' started by lauly, Dec 22, 2011.

  1. Hello Everyone!

    I am doing my first half-term plan for my PGCE placement. I am in a Early Years Foundation Phase School in Wales - in reception class. I am doing the topic of Toys for history and I wanted to know if anyone had any advice. I am planning for 5 weeks (as per my university requirements). I am doing one session in a week with a full class of 30 (split into five groups) for five weeks.

    I was thinking:

    Week one - Favorite toys (read dogger) - so talking about new toys.
    Week two - Toys as a baby (their past) and then move oneto toys as a toddler.
    Week three - bring in a suitcase of old and new toys and pretend I found it on a train - to help them identify which are old and which are new.
    Week four - Different types of toys (I may change week three and four around).
    Week five - ///// unsure/////

    I would really appreciate some advice - I am finding this really hard! I have been told that I really need to concentrate on keeping it age specific and also that I need to provide them with the tools and means tolearn how to be able to differentiate old from new.

    Many thanks
