Description

Fully revised and updated for the new 2012 EYFS Curriculum

Gardening: Activities for 3-5 Year Olds contains enjoyable play activities designed to develop important preschool skills and a deeper understanding of the world and are linked to the Early Learning Goals of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Gardening offers children a wealth of knowledge and experiences and many opportunities to develop new skills. They may learn to grow and care for seeds and plants and to observe, discover and record how and why they grow, or fail to grow.

An early years group without an outdoor area of their own could carry out many of the activities indoors.

The practical activities include:

  • Growing gardens in jars
  • Creating miniature gardens
  • Investigating how much different types of soil weigh
  • Making leaf prints
  • Pressing flowers
All the books in the Activities for 3-5 Year Olds Series contain tried-and-tested activities, linked to the Early Learning Goals of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, revised by the Department of Education for September 2012. They are an invaluable resource of fun, easy-to-use ideas for all early years settings, from preschools and nurseries to reception classes and day nurseries.
