Learning Threads for the EYFS
Practical activities for 3-5 year olds



February 2019 | 208 pages | Learning Matters
This text offers practical ideas and guidance for activities through which all areas of the EYFS can be delivered. Each chapter presents a different Learning Thread. For each thread, the author details a number of activities, lists effective resources and most importantly explores opportunities for child initiated learning. Ideas for role play areas and further scope for learning in each thread are also covered. The text demonstrates how these activities can be used whilst planning continuous provision. This book also:
  • Demonstrates how activities link to the EYFS framework directly
  • Offers practical guidance on what to do in settings and with children to enhance their learning
  • Shows how learning can be 'blended' as all learning threads offer links across the prime and specific areas.
 
Chapter 1 Learning Thread: Beaches and Blue Seas
 
Chapter 2 Learning Thread: Space and Sparkling Stars
 
Chapter 3 Learning Thread: Dangerous Dinosaurs
 
Chapter 4 Learning Thread: Wacky and Wonderful Weather
 
Chapter 5 Learning Thread: A Place we Call Home

This is a well set out book with a range of excellent activities which would suit all student ages and levels. It also has some excellent points which were discussed in group learning.
