‘I believe that Summer is a time of abundance and imagination. This Summer edition of Thrive will explore nature and outdoor activities that will develop children’s cognitive and creative thinking. These activities have been tried and tested over thirty-two years working in an early years setting. The underlying principles of this book reinforce the importance of nature for children and families. Thrive continues to emphasise mindfulness and holistic emotional well being, for children and families.’
Summer Time gives children the opportunity to be outdoors where they can be free to explore the world around them. Furthermore, playing outdoors can benefit children in many ways from exposure to sunlight, movement of body, improvement of balance and coordination and finally, sensory engagement. The below video gives a taste of the ideas that are included in the book. Check out this book and more in our Exploring Nature with Children category on the Primary School Shop.
