The Early Years Handbook is a guide for all Foundation Stage practitioners. It is the first publication of the Curriculum Partnership, the informal name for a group of leading subject associations who are working together in the interest of our members.

Written by Early Years subject experts (from the Geographical Association, Mathematical Association, Association for Science Education, National Association for the Teaching of English and the Design and Technology Association), and edited by experienced Early Years author Max de Bóo, the treatment is entirely holistic in nature and firmly rooted in a play-based approach to early learning. The book consists of an introduction and twelve activities. The introduction explains the pedagogy underpinning this approach to early years learning, and the activities are all drawn from areas of experience that are relevant and interesting to young children - nursery rhymes, families, experiences of the world. They cover all the QCA early learning goals in an imaginative and enjoyable way, and prepare children for the more subject-oriented work they will encounter in key stage 1.

This new handbook has been designed to help all early years practitioners provide fun and stimulating learning experiences for children, confident that they are embedded in the Foundation Stage Curriculum and will help children progress smoothly from the Foundation Stage to Reception and Year 1.

Chapters in the Handbook include: · Role play and language: Do I have to wear my coat? · Odds and evens: How many legs? · Learning to share: It’s my turn! · Problem solving in the water tray: Incy Wincy spider! · Designing and making: The gingerbread people have a day out
