Here We Go Round: Quality Circle Time for 3-5 year olds (2nd Edition plus CD) by Jenny Mosley and Helen Sonnet
Includes updated second edition of this book plus CD – so you can make as many copies as you like! This second edition of the original ‘Here We Go Round’ has been completely revised in line with the changes to the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Statutory Framework’. By linking Circle Time to the four themes outlined in Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), this essential text will support practitioners in promoting the rich and stimulating environment and practice that young children need. Clearly laid out with Early Learning Goals, Aspects of Learning and Development Statements alongside the relevant Circle Time activity numbers, for quick and easy reference, this book is indispensable!
“This new edition of Here We Go Round is a brilliant resource for EYFS planning” Jane Mansfield, Early Years Consultant
Stepping Stones to Success by Helen Sonnet and Pat
72 easy to use lesson plans for developing the personal, social and emotional well-being of young children.
“This extremely practical book is a very useful circle time resource for all adults in the foundation stage. The simple lesson plans are easy to follow and the context is consistently relevant for young children.” Marion Dowling, Early Years Specialist (formerly HMI)
Jenny Mosley’s Top Tips for Puppet Scripts
Here is a lovely little booklet of tried and tested puppet scripts that you can use straight away or adapt to bring to life any one of our lovely puppets. Puppets are great fun and this little booklet will give you great confidence. Just put this booklet on your lap and read from it! The children will be so busy looking at the puppets they won’t notice.
Elephant Cuddly Puppet
Our adorable new elephant puppet has soft skin and a movable head and mouth. Elephants are sensitive and caring animals, with incredible memories who love to laugh and play! This elephant puppet will help children remember important things like “be nice to each other” and also having large ears she encourages them to listen in class and in Circle Time! Suitable for children 10 months and above – always read manufacturer’s label.
Giraffe Cuddly Puppet
Giraffes are sociable, peaceful animals which rarely fight and we are hoping our gorgeous new puppet will help children follow the giraffe’s good example! Movable mouth and head from the back of the neck. Suitable for children aged 10 months and above – always read manufacturer’s label.
In an enabling environment, adults could:
• “Plan small group circle times when children can explore feelings …
• Involve children in agreeing codes of behaviour and taking responsibility for implanting them.
• Provide opportunities for children to participate in meaningful speaking and listening activities …”
