"Janet Moyles's carefully and imaginatively edited book will be of great interest to a wide educational community...

* How can new primary teachers not only survive but enjoy their chosen career? * What can newly qualified and student teachers do to recognize and address the many complexities of primary teaching? * What are the issues which continually challenge both new and experienced teachers?
The second edition of this successful text sets out to explore some of the wider issues surrounding work with children in the 3-11 years age range and considers how these are woven into the broad framework of teaching and teachers' own learning. Cameos and examples of classroom practice help to illustrate the aspects of teaching: what it is to be an effective and competent teacher; classroom processes such as planning, observation and assessment; the variety of ways in which children learn and develop thinking skills through various curriculum areas including ICT; equal opportunities and special needs issues; 'in loco parentis' responsibilities and reflective approaches to teaching. Written in an accessible style, the aim throughout is to offer guidance and encouragement in the challenging and complex task of early years and primary teaching.
