Fully revised and updated for the new 2012 EYFS Curriculum
Play Activities for the Early Years contains over 130 activities for practitioners to use with children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). It is full of fun ideas to encourage purposeful play. There are seven chapters, one for each of the three prime and four specific areas detailed in the new, revised EYFS (September 2012.)
The activity pages are clearly laid out and well illustrated, making the book easy to use. The fully photocopiable activity sheets can be used:
- In curriculum planning
- By staff and new assistants to help them understand the purposes of play activities in the setting
- On display boards to inform parents, together with examples of children’s work.
Many of the activities have accompanying photocopiable sheets, providing a variety of written and pictorial resource material. The simple design of the book makes it ideal for planning and assessment. The detailed tables and activity pages list many possible learning opportunities and links to the new Early Learning Goals.
