A well-developed text that I would offer as a basis reference tool and resource to undergraduates, PGCE students, newly qualified students and employed practitioners within Primary Education. Maths and English are a keen focus when considering curriculum subject planning, with excellent examples of detailed lesson plans. It is unfortunate that no examples of long term planning are present. Chapters then continue to discuss other subjects in the same format. Direct links are given via web pages to relevant internet sites which support curriculum guidance and supplementary information.
Good overview of planning for those new to this aspect of teaching and learning
A thoughtful and interesting book which will assist students in understanding how to plan within the New Primary Curriculum.
This is valuable addition to the reading list for initial teacher education courses. Students will definitely find it useful especially in the ever changing climate of Education.
This text provides students with a copy of the National Curriculum enhanced by additional commentary to support effective planning in each subject.
This is interesting but because each subject in the national curriculum is considered separately, it becomes rather prescriptive with ideas for discrete teaching, which in light of the focus for cross curricular teaching and learning is a little irrelevant as far as creativity in the curriculum is concerned. Probably a book that teachers might find useful, but personally I found it a little restrictive.
This book informatively guides the reader how to plan for all subject areas of the new national curriculum. The principles and theory that support effective subject planning are explored. Exemplar planning is provided linked to the National Curriculum framework document. Key planning components including assessment opportunities, use of resources, embedding of computing and progression are incorporated. Theory is effectively linked with practice.
very accessible and useful to dip into for specialist information
An essential book for primary teachers especially in times of extreme change in primary curriculum.
This is a clear, easy to read source of guidance to support students as they develop their ability to plan engaging and exciting lessons. It is a useful one-stop book which incorporates a copy of the National Curriculum as well as guidance for planning all subjects.
This book uses the National Curriculum as its basis to guide readers on how to plan for each subject area for a class of primary-level children. The ‘How to use this book’ page recommends that the reader starts with chapter one, however if you are already a qualified teacher ,it may not be essential to read all the chapters.
Comprehensive planning guidelines and advice for those new to teaching. Some good examples of planning, particularly history.
An excellent text that will support newly qualified teachers and teaching assistants in implementing the National Curriculum and becoming familiar with requirements across subjects.
We are happy to recommend this text to our undergraduate and postgraduate trainees. It is a clear guide that supports trainees at different stages of the course with practical ideas and links to further research/information across all their curriculum subjects. My copy has been 'poached' by other colleagues!
This book provides a great starting point for all those trainee teachers trying to get their heads around the primary curriculum and how to approach teaching it.
Very in depth specific detail regarding application of new NC to lesson planning. Ideal theoretical basis for ITT & PGCE
Very useful and liked by students too
Very useful book - will feed into our Subject Studies sessions and be a recommended text.
This book provides a clear overview of all the subjects, including the foundation subjects relevant to the enw curriculum. There are specific questions which encourages discussion,self evaluation allowing students to reflect on their own expereinces and make jusgements about their own value positions. The further reading sections and references have been extremely useful as it allows students to develop their knowledge, understanding and application further.
A very practical, comprehensive guide that will be of benefit to FdA Learning Support students in the modules Supporting the Curriculum and Assessment and Learning
