Make the most of long summer days with our practical activities that take learning outside. Give children spades and trowels and set them up to explore what lies beneath the earth, and link this to Understanding the World. Use our simple craft ideas to explore a seaside theme and develop children’s talents for expressive arts and design. Make maths fun by using everyday objects such as pegs to support colour and number recognition.

Hear from the sector about what its priorities are for the new government and its recommendations for taking the early years workforce forward. Renew your focus on children’s moments of awe and wonder and reflect on how these can be used to maximise learning and well-being. Refresh your knowledge of attachment theory with our up-to-date guide and ensure that your children benefit from secure relationships in pre-school.
