Moving from FS2 to Y1-What should no Y1 Classroom be without?

    I have been teaching in EYFS for 5 years and haven't opened a National Curriculum for the same amount of time! (Oops!) SO, I would be grateful if anyone could give me any Y1 hints/tips regarding the essential and useful resources you couldn't do without in a Y1 classroom. Also, what might a typical day look like?

    The previous Y1 teacher struggled a bit with the Autumn term as he wasn't used to continuous provision for those still working within EYFS goals. I think I am going to struggle with the formality of Y1. Any help gratefully received!
  2. Continuous provision! Blocks, sand, water, home corner, small world, workshop area...typical day would have opportunities for accessing continuous provision - with 'challenges' highlighted for children to do

    I would definitely recommend your usual continuous provision. Look carefully or use your knowledge of where the children's needs are. I.e. If they are low in creative. Set up areas which will develop creativity. There's no need for a water tray if all your children can pour and say full and empty! If you have children who need fine motor development set up areas to develop that.
