The Planning for Learning series is a series of topic books written around the Early Years Foundation Stage (2007) designed to make planning easy. This book takes you through 12 days of activities on the theme of the 12 days of Christmas. Each activity is linked to a specific Early Learning Goal, and the book contains a skills overview so that practitioners can keep track of which areas of learning and development they are promoting. This book also includes a photocopiable page to give to parents with ideas for them to get involved with their children's topic, as well as ideas for bringing the six weeks of learning together.
The weekly themes in this book include: ideas for advent, the Christmas story, Christmas cards and decorations, and organising your very own Christmas party.
