Using creative and performative methods is central to engaging children in fun and inspiring learning. This hands-on guide provides activities, quick tips and advice for developing performance and creative skills to support delivery of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

Each chapter focuses on a particular method, including storytelling, role play, puppetry, sensory play, music and dance, and gives practitioners the confidence to develop and use these skills in their teaching. The book reveals how each method can be used to support key developmental aspects, such as language and communication, physical development and movement, listening and attention, and managing feelings.
