About This Primary Resource

This is an editable visual timetable, ideal to use in your school or early years setting. A new version of this resource can be found here.

A visual timetable is an excellent way of providing structure and helping children understand their daily routine.

This resource features picture cards representing many different early years activities. This includes outside play, circle time, phonics, forest school, brain gym and many more. Please note, it is a Word document and we have put a text box above each picture so that you can change the title or type the time of day that each activity takes place. If you would like us to add a particular activity to the visual timetable please get in touch.

    I have trawled the internet for a visual timetable with everything on that I require or a way of editing but unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be such a thing! This came close but I guess we all have such individual needs and situations there can’t be a ‘one size fits all’.
