Our series on Froebel: theory and practice continues with a look at Nature from Professor Tina Bruce and Jane Dyke of Yellow Dot Nurseries, plus an accompanying poster with wonderful images of children enjoying the natural world. Our regular four-page activity section includes a project on birds from Reflections Nursery, Penny Tassoni on music as a learning experience and Julie Mountain on five things to do with feathers. Superhero play is the subject of the latest article in our Collections series, with suggestions for activities and resources, and we visit a nursery school with an innovative environment of outdoor ‘shelters’. Find out, too, about parenting programmes working with mothers and fathers from pregnancy. In Work Matters, our series on the 30 hours pilots goes to York; Debbie Alcock explains social services’ role where allegations have been made; Mark Traynor has the latest property forecast; and John Simmonds looks at special guardianship. In News, the spotlight is on the Early Years Workforce Strategy, the revised EYFS and the roll-out of tax-free childcare.
