About this title

Synopsis:

′An essential read for trainee and newly qualified teachers covering all key areas of the primary curriculum. There is a real sense of experienced and enthusiastic practitioners writing about "what makes good" and why, with lots of clear practical examples of how to put ideas into practice.′ - Jackie Keith, Deputy Head and Programme Leader for School Direct, London East Teacher Training Alliance

To be a successful teacher in primary schools you need to have an informed understanding of a wide range of subjects.  This book provides clear guidance of good practice teaching different subjects in primary education, informed by current curriculum directions, and full of practical advice for the classroom. 

Key features:

  • Clear links to the 2014 National Curriculum in England
  • ′In the classroom′ examples from schools demonstrate intelligent and engaging ways to teach different subjects
  • Reflective questions challenge you to critically engage with what you have read and apply it to your own teaching
This is essential reading for students on primary initial teacher education courses, including university-based (PGCE, BA QTS, BEd), school-based (SCITT, School Direct) and employment-based routes into teaching. 

Review:

'The general message of the book appears to not only prepare teachers to think about each subject area but to recognise, as Eisner (2002: 58) would suggest, that the teacher 'teaches herself as well as the subject'. As a result paying each subject due attention and recognising their strengths and learning opportunities becomes important; enabling the subjects to be represented more evenly to children.

Useful connections to recent policy and relevant research literature which provides an up to date feel. In addition classroom practice is represented through the practice based examples.

A creative approach to art and design is encouraged in the dedicated chapter on this important area of the curriculum. This approach encourages children to be playful with materials and ideas, but to also become knowledgeable in traditional and contemporary art practices: drawing painting photography and through the use of sketchbooks. Material is included which supports the management of the learning environment and positive approaches to engaging with a broad selection of artistic practices. References to recent policy and research material helps contextualise the ideas in a broader setting.'--Paul Key

'An essential read for trainee and newly qualified teachers covering all key areas of the primary curriculum. Experienced teachers will also find this useful as a refresher, as well as those leading a new area of the curriculum. Current pedagogy and systems are referred to throughout in a very accessible way. There is a real sense of experienced and enthusiastic practitioners writing about 'what makes good' and why, with lots of clear practical examples of how to put ideas into practice.'--Jackie Keith
