This title is part of a brand new series, edited by Jennie Lindon, which takes a fresh approach to planning by ensuring that children's interests are at
the heart of all plans.
Planning for the Early Years: Gardening and Growing is packed with adaptable ideas that can be extended for older children, or more focussed for the under
threes. It focuses on the prime areas of learning, especially the development of early language, defined in the 2011 Tickell review of the EYFS as the
foundations for all learning.
This title will allow you to:
Plan for children's individual stages of development through the use of adaptable and inclusive plans, and plans specifically for the 0-3s
Engage and motivate children to learn by planning around their interests
Include children with English as an Additional Language and Special Educational
Needs through plans that take into consideration a variety of abilities
Activities and ideas include:
