Teach The Whole Curriculum

Utilise outdoors, engage harder to reach children, and teach activities that help children be happy, healthy and learning


During this global pandemic there are many unknowns for teachers. However, one thing is clear – social distancing, at least in some form, is here to stay for the foreseeable future.

Attempting social distancing with young children raises many questions: how is it possible? How can we incorporate it into games and activities? How do we help and support children with this lack of human connection?

Created by an early education expert and consultant, this online course provides a simple, and step-by-step description of games covering the entire curriculum that take place within the context of social distancing. Resources have been stripped back, to leave a collection of activities where storytelling, role-play, drama, song, and movement come to the fore.

Wellbeing is at the heart of this course. Children’s mental health has been tested recently in ways never experienced by earlier generations, and wellbeing and happiness are central to all the games.

This is a great book written in plain English with no jargon just full of excellent ideas. Each header made me think of some of my cohort – unicorns and lava fill my day! I now have a collection of new ideas suitable for everyone but particularly to hook my reluctant mark makers attention. It’s an easy read so easy to dip in and out of for activity ideas. I also like that we have most of the resources needed, no need for expensive set-ups.

Simply a fantastic book. It’s not often you read a book where you instantly want to try all the activities at once. They are all clearly explained and use minimal resources so you don’t have to spend hours and a fortune finding them. I

As a parent with no qualifications in teaching, I found this book really well written, with enough information to understand what skills are being developed without being too heavy. I love that the materials used are free or very cheap and are easily available. There are quite a few activities in this book that I’ve done before, but with an extra twist added or further extension ideas given. The activities we’ve tried so far have been a great hit with both my 6 year old reluctant writer and my 3 year old keen writer and I can’t wait to try out some more.
