Themes, Activities and Resources

In line with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) I link activities with different themes but also take my lead from the children. For example, my recent theme of transport was chosen after one of the children developed an interest in both toy and real–life vehicles. Themes can be planned around the seasons or various cultural festivals/holidays.

Some examples of the resources and activities I provide are listed below

Story time – we pile up cushions on a rug and get comfy for stories

Music & Song time – I have a wide selection of instruments, rattles and CDs

Games & puzzles – suitable for a variety of different ages

Treasure baskets

Baby toys & playmats

Various multicultural toys & resources

Messy play

Cooking

Wide range of art & craft materials

Play–dough

Role play – dolls/puppets/dressing up/shop & mini–kitchen

Construction toys – lego/duplo/mega bloks/bricks & more

Small world play – garage & cars/train set/happyland/farm or jungle animals & lots more

Outdoor play – Swing, slides, play-house, child’s greenhouse, sand & water play, ride–ons, rockers and lots more
