This book situates UK education within the current and global of educational change. It provides new and experienced teachers with a research-focused history of the national curriculum up to the present day.
We make sense, and learn about our world, by gathering and piecing together evidence from a range of different aspects and subjects. This book promotes the importance and value of both discrete and cross-curricular teaching, focusing on the need to broaden horizons and interests resulting in self-motivated lifelong learners.
This is a good overview. To creativity in the primary curriculum. It is written in an accessible style for UG and OGCE students. There is not enough about music education I don't think, music is left slightly to one side in the discussions of creativity.
This is helpful as a background reading book for EYT trainees in preparation for their Key stage one placement.
Very good for the Primary Ed and Supporting Learning modules.
Well written, easy to read and use with clear aims and helpful case studies to read.
I would recommend this book as it looks at all of the varied primary curriculum areas, giving advice about how to provide a more creative pedagogy for the classroom. I like the fact that the reader can use this for reference going straight to the chapter that they are interested in, rather than having to skim read the whole book.
Useful resource. Recommended text for Whole Curriculum Studies.
The book is presented in an easy to read format, that incorporates case studies throughout the chapters to help consolidate knowledge and understanding across the issues raised. It is good that the reference list is positioned at the end of each chapter as opposed to the end of the book itself, as this supports direct access to further research.
This new edition will continue to be useful to FdA Learning Support stduents who are working as teaching assistants within primary schools, and need to develop a holistic overview of the curriculum.
Essential reading for all education students as it covers the new National Curriculum. Each chapter is written in an accessible style and comprehensively examines a subject of the primary National Curriculum.
Good all round read for generalists.
Useful overview for teaching assistants embarking for the first time on the formal study of education
