Planning for Learning through: Celebrations and Festivals is the latest title in a popular and established series which aims to make planning in the Early Years Foundation Stage practical, easy and cost-effective. There are six weeks of planning around six different themes. Each theme includes two activities linked to the areas of learning to develop children’s skills across the Curriculum.
It includes sections on:
• Making plans

The themes cover:
Special food and clothes
