Synopsis

Getting Boys Up and Running in the Early Years addresses the fact that boys do less well than girls in all areas of learning in the Early Years and continue to lag behind girls in assessments throughout their school careers. This book draws on current research to provide practical advice on ways in which Early Years practitioners can create positive learning environments for all children. It explores how best to match provision to all children's learning styles, aiding their progress in personal, social and emotional development, communication and language, and physical development. Final chapters show how learning in all other curriculum areas can follow, in a carefully designed environment. Key points explored include: * the environment we can create to enable both boys and girls to become confident and autonomous learners * ways that practitioners can evaluate and enhance provision to improve levels of well-being and involvement * physical development and the value of active, challenging and adventurous play * practical ways to stimulate language development * planned activities and rich experiences that support holistic learning in an inspiring environment.

Giving clear guidance on helping boys to meet high expectations in a playful and creative way, Getting Boys Up and Running in the Early Years is an essential read for anyone working to create a positive foundation for boys in Early Years education.
