Seasons by Brenda Williams
This series provides a ready-made collection of early years stories, songs, rhymes and information text all based around popular themes. The books are more than just anthologies with each poem, story or rhyme being photocopiable and accompanied by activity ideas showing how it can be used as a springboard for activities across the curriculum. All the ideas are carefully linked to the requirements of the new Early Learning Goals. The books also include photocopiable templates and activity sheets. Seasons provides a wide range of resources to take you through the whole year. In Spring look at baby animals, spring-cleaning and blossom. For Summer move on to the seaside, gardens and sending postcards. Autumn provides ideas based on squirrels, conkers and changing leaf colours, while Winter covers snow, frost and feeling cosy indoors.
