This scheme of work for EYFS/Year 1 has been devised especially for Plazoom by teacher/author/trainer Debra Kidd, and is based on the book Up and Down, by Oliver Jeffers.

It includes planning and resources to cover up to a half-term of learning.

This resource pack includes:

  • Teaching notes
  • Images of birds in flight
  • Categorisation sorting cards
  • Stanley’s letter
  • Trees through the seasons images
  • PowerPoint - teaching slides

Cross-curricular subjects covered:

  • Animals including humans
  • Classification of animals (birds) and subclassifications (flying and flightless)
  • Names of birds and trees they see and notice locally (and penguins)
  • Writing simple labels and descriptions
  • Weather, seasons, habitats.
  • Counting and recording numbers.
  • Sketching and designing; building prototypes
  • Plants and changes to plants – deciduous and coniferous trees
  • Coping with limitations and disappointments and making something positive from them
  • Migrating and resident birds
  • Location knowledge – migration routes of birds

This is one of a set of five packs, covering Reception to Year 6 (with the final pack having strong potential for transition activities), each with a different focus, and all offering plenty of opportunities to weave literacy learning across the curriculum in a story-sharing context.

  • Teaching notes
  • Images of birds in flight
  • Categorisation sorting cards
  • Stanley's letter
  • Trees through the seasons images
  • Teaching slides
