In the classroom
This activity gives children the opportunity to make and express
choices, plans, and decisions. It is a small group activity that
can be led by an adult or a child. Children sing their own plans
by joining in with a planning song to the tune of Here We Go Round
The Mulberry Bush.
Clicking on the image of the children in the circle will start
the activity. Each image of a child in the circle is linked to a
popular early years activity and the words of a planning song. Children
are encouraged to consider a range of activities before taking turns
to sing their own plan of what they are going to do next.
This activity is aimed at groups of children and, as such, is well-suited
to use with an interactive whiteboard. Children can walk up to the
board and press the character of their choice and then ‘sing
their plan’ with the other children joining in. It is an excellent
way to introduce children to notions of choice, planning and decision
