Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This is a book that does what it claims to do. It offers a clear, concise and creative introduction to the primary curriculum. It is written in a most accessible style by well known and well established teacher educators who have vast experience of supporting the professional, academic and personal development of student teachers and teachers. It is an excellent resource for students and beginner teachers. I expect it will become the core text on teacher education courses' -
