Recommended books on teaching in foundation stage please

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by kat38, May 7, 2011.

  1. After 12 years teaching in KS1 and 2 (most recently in Year 2) I have been told that I will be teaching in foundation stage and being foundation stage leader in September. I'm really excited, but also pretty terrified as the last time I taught Reception was many moons ago on teaching practice! One of the reasons I have been asked to do it is that the current teacher has been in post for over 20 years and things are done in quite a 'stale' way and so in many ways I need to start organisation from scratch..I was hoping someone would be able to recommend a good book / set of books that I could read to give me a few ideas on how to go about planning, the structure of the day and setting up the classroom + of course any other tips or information!
    Many Thanks in advance

    Have a look at the Foundation Stage Forum website- sorry I don't know how to hyperlink! This is dedicated to all things under 5 and there are some great forums and articles on there that will certainly give you plenty to think about!!
