The Early Years Handbook (9781843771159)
Support for practitioners in the foundation stage
THE cross-curricular guide for all early years practitioners, full of practical ideas, activities and reflective thinking
Editor: Max de Boo
The ideas in this handbook are firmly rooted in learning through play whilst ensuring that curriculum targets are met, assessed effectively and shared with colleagues and parents.
Each theme constructs the learning environment from Starting Points, Resources and Productive Questions through to Children’s Voices and Assessment.
The themes strongly appeal to children and include ‘Save Incy Wincy Spider’ and ‘Can you get to Grandma’s Safely?’ (Little Red Riding Hood).
The authors are well known for their expertise both in Early Years Education and their subject specialisms.
This resource is a joint venture between the ASE, the Geographical Association, the Mathematical Association, and the National Association for the Teaching of English and the Design and Technology Association – collectively known as the Curriculum Partnership.
‘The Early Years Handbook by Max de Boo is not just loved by my Early Years PGCE trainees but also my Primary PGCE trainees. They love the pictures with the text. This is still current in terms of good practice even though there have been changes in the curriculum.’
