    I teach Y1 and am going 'topic based' this September. I have had lots of ideas for the Ourselves topic but not sure how to write them down??

    Would any kind person be willing to email me a copy of the topic web or medium term plan along with weekly plans taken from it??

    It would be such a useful starting point for me, this could be for any topic as I just need a template type but Ourselves would be ideal.

    Thanks in advance I'm struggling for motivation too can anyone email me some??

  3. Hiya I did this topic last term as we have early transition so I could prob send you all my stuff, but I have all the topic plans on my usb at my mums house, but if you want I could get and post them on the thread tomorrow.
    Has just general activity ideas such as :
    *Painting themselves
    *making movable bodies with split pins
    *drawing around themselves and comparing with class mates, who is the tallest shortest etc.
    *circle time with rules on how to care for each other
    *who lives in our house activities

    etc etc. Any use??

    Thanks pinklaydee. It will be really useful to see how you've set out the termly overview and weekly plans so I have a starting point.

    I'll check in tomorrow.
  5. Have you got an email address?

  7. I got lots of useful ideas from the resource bank, not sure if i typed in ourselves or all about me.
  8. Pinklaydee!
    Would you mind sending me the planning overview for ourselves too? I am in Reception (so might be different) I am not too bad for general ideas, but struggling to work out the format in my head as the teacher before me always had mixed R/Yr1 so her planning format doesnt make sense for the early years.
    Thanks in advance
  9. Yep will do adele, sometime tommorrow. I am Nursery but tend to cross over with R so it will prob be more suited to your age range.
  10. Hi pinklady would you mind sending me a copy of all your 'ourselves' planning. I'm in the same boat - moving towards topic planning and have just finished my nqt year so I'm a bit apprehensive about it. x
  11. sorry to be a pain but im an nqt doin this topic too across foundation stage and year one so would love some ideas please.
    thank you xx
  12. Hi everyone I have been a bit manic this week trying to make a start on the children's profiles but I promise to email everyone tommorrow.
    I will just forward on whatever 'ourselves' stuff I can find and I hope this will be ok!!
