Review

"There is a reason why this book is now in its fourth edition - it is a classic. The work of the editors and authors responding to new research, new policies and new practices, over the many years of the book’s life, is one of its many outstanding features. And for this edition the renewed emphasis on critical analysis is most welcome. Not only is this book invaluable for trainee teachers but policy makers could well find food for thought as well."

- Dominic Wyse, Professor of Early Childhood & Primary Education, University College London

"Unquestionably, teaching in the primary school is a messy, complex, demanding business. For anyone starting out in the classroom, this book is an easily accessible guide to the challenges you may face, offering both theoretical rationales and practical advice to help."

- Megan Dixon, Director of Literacy for the Aspire Educational Trust

"A welcome new edition of this outstanding, comprehensive book that should be a core reader for anyone embarking on primary teacher training. It will become the 'go-to text' for trainees across all routes into teaching. A highly accessible, interactive book written by highly qualified teacher educators who are experts in their field."

- Jane Warwick, Primary PGCE Course Manager, University of Cambridge

"This 4th edition is a contemporary and extremely relevant resource for prospective and qualified primary teachers alike. The wide range of established authors provides a detailed discussion and focussed insight into the complexities of being a primary teacher. The child as an individual and a reflective approach to the curriculum are valued as key components of effective learning and teaching. This is a must-read for all professional practitioners."

- Jenny Carpenter, Director of Partnerships, York St John University
