Spring in their steps
Celebrating Spring in the Early Years
In the Northern Hemisphere the countryside is waking up again – time to ‘Spring’ into action, get the children outside and explore the environment. Jan Homden has assembled resources to take you through to the end of term.

Part A – For a great entry point take your children to visit your local park/ botanical garden/petting farm. There are ideas to start or enhance your school garden and for the very young a play dough garden centre to extend their imaginative play.
In the Role Play Area set up a flower/farm shop with resources that are free to download. Learn through nature by planting bulbs or raising tadpoles. Create a sensory Spring theme in the tuff spot for lots of matching and sorting activities and tactile experiences. Reviews of Springtime stories to share and songs and rhymes to enjoy.

Part B – Spring activities for Maths and Language and creative ideas for printing and making bunny and chick puppets. Simple recipes for using eggs (sweet and savoury) and a grand exit point to organise with the inevitable Spring hat parade and egg hunt!
