The Seasons of Nature

‘When all at once I saw a crowd, a host of golden daffodils.’

Nature bursts into life at this time of year and embracing the joys of spring is a great way to develop observational skills, understanding of the world and of nature. Try the activities Spring: Patterns all Around by Linda Thornton and Pat Brunton, Splashes of Colour by Rebecca Aburrow or Let’s Grow by Su Wall. 

April 2020 is also the 250th anniversary of Wordsworth’s birth, so we’ve put together Ideas for Words and Poetry to give you some inspiration. Try Sounds and Words by Judith Harries or What can I do? by Keri Finlayson. 

We also have a brand new set of activities by Sally Featherstone for developing emotions. These will help children build vocabulary for a range of emotions and think about how other people feel; empathy and understanding are skills for life. You can use the keyword search to look for activities which are related to a specific event for example, Easter, pancake or Holi.

We have also added a new Ideas for Spring page and some new Free Activities to get you started this spring. With over 2500 activities, there is plenty at Bloomsbury Early Years to inspire you and help you to enable learning in your setting this spring.
