When Handa reaches Akeyo, will she have anything left to offer her friend? Richly illustrated, brimming with luscious fruit and cheeky wild animals, this mouth-watering story is for the youngest of readers.

Shortlisted for Best Professional Book by Nursery World Awards 2017! The stakes have never been higher: Ofsted have a new, tougher inspection framework for the early years. If you are judged to be less than good, you risk losing funding for places. A reputation that took years to build can vanish overnight. But instead of hiding behind the “Ofsted monster” to get things done, Early Years expert Julian Grenier argues that it’s time to do what’s right for children and families, and build long-lasting and effective provision. Completely up to date with Ofsted’s new Common Inspection Framework and avoiding a ‘tick-box’ approach to preparation, Julian focuses on the importance of developing your provision and your team up to and beyond inspection day. It is accompanied by easy-to-use time-saving pro formas and self-reflective documents that can be downloaded online for free. This book is ideal for head teachers, senior leaders, EYFS co-ordinators, nursery managers and Early Years practitioners. “We had our Ofsted Inspection on May 31st and achieved an Outstanding grade which we are very proud of, as you might imagine! I used Successful Early Years Ofsted Inspections to focus my thoughts when preparing for the inspection and I am sure it was a contributory factor in our grade.” -Wendy Taylor, Nursery Manager, Acorns Nursery Julian Grenier will be discussing ideas from Successful Early Years Oftsed Inspections in the SAGE Early Years Masterclass, a free professional development experience hosted by Kathy Brodie.

This title highlights aspects of progression and continuity in the teaching of English across the Foundation and Primary years and encourages readers to develop an understanding of key principles and the confidence to apply these appropriately to their classroom practice.
This fascinating study shows how young children work simultaneously in two languages to decode unfamiliar text, negotiate meaning and explore the differences between their languages. Set in the context of current research and practice in relation to multiliteracy, personal and learner identity, and issues in translation, the book explores dual language books and their use since the 1980s. Developed from action research work by primary teachers, the book follows seven children aged 6 to 10 as they use dual language storybooks to learn to read in Albanian, Urdu, Turkish, French and Gujerati, with the help of their mothers or their friends. Teachers, parents and researchers will find the book invaluable. It explores the nature and benefits of biliteracy and offers ideas and strategies for teaching young children languages, whether by developing their bilingualism or teaching them new ones.
How do you make mathematics relevant and exciting to young children? How can mathematics and literacy be combined in a meaningful way? How can stories inspire the teaching and learning of mathematics? This book explores the exciting ways in which story can be used as a flexible resource to facilitate children’s mathematical thinking. It looks at the potential relationship between story and mathematics and practically demonstrates how they can be combined to help children connect, understand and express mathematical ideas using story language. Written for all early years practitioners and students, the book offers a playful pedagogical approach to facilitating children’s mathematical thinking which brings a creative satisfaction and confidence to teaching mathematics. Encouraging a creative approach to teaching mathematics that draws on picture books and oral mathematical stories, the book shows you how to: Move from reading to telling stories with mathematical themes Encourage children to pose and solve problems by playing with the plot of stories Enable children to translate abstract mathematical ideas to concrete representations with supporting story props and puppets Create original oral mathematical stories alongside children Capture children’s mathematical thinking in an observational framework, supported with audio or video recordings which can be shared with parents and colleagues There are free audio recordings of children and adults telling oral mathematical stories, which feature in the book. These can be downloaded from: www.routledge.com/9780415688154 This book draws on practical work with children, educators, parents, professional storytellers, and trainee practitioners, who bring theoretical ideas to life and offer insight into their mathematical story experiences.
